Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has fully integrated its dealership management system with Dashboard Dealership Enterprises to satisfy the current and emerging needs of its customers, the company announced on Wednesday.
Dashboard Dealership Enterprises develops dealership management reporting products and related services such as Executive Eye, the company’s flagship product.
"Managers at every level in automotive retail have more important things to do than spend time compiling data into reports, which quickly become inaccurate and don't tell the story behind the numbers," Auto/Mate president and chief executive officer Mike Esposito said in a news release. "Analytics and business intelligence software allow managers to drill down and identify why problems are occurring, so they can take immediate and appropriate action."
Dealerships using both Auto/Mate's DMS and Dashboard's reporting solutions can now take part in seamless data exchange and real-time updates across the two systems, according to Auto/Mate.
"Our mission is to exceed customer expectations for services, quality, speed of implementation, ease of use and support," Dashboard Dealership Enterprises chief executive officer Josh Blick said. "The Open/Mate integration process with Auto/Mate was painless and we are thrilled that more auto dealers now have an enterprise option to analytics and business intelligence."
Last week, CDK Global announced that it had signed a deal to acquire Auto/Mate.
CDK said in a news release it will integrate the Auto/Mate DMS into its product offering.
Each of the company’s boards has approved the deal, which is subject to customary closing requirements and regulatory approval. The deal, whose terms were not disclosed, should close this summer, the companies said.
