CALGARY, Alberta — Quorum Information Technologies announced this week that its XSELLERATOR dealership and customer management system has gained Chrysler manufacturer integration certification, and the product is now available to Canada's Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealers.

As part of Chrysler's certification, there is approval of a full suite of integration between XSELLERATOR and Chrysler systems for sales, service, parts and accounting, officials noted.

To gain the certification, Quorum said it worked closely with Chrysler Canada as well as Dale Wurfel Chrysler, the dealership involved in beta testing.

"We were previously a GM dealership using Quorum's XSELLERATOR system. When we received our Chrysler franchise, the system choice was clear for us — we wanted to stay on XSELLERATOR," explained Dale Wurfel, dealer principal of the store.

"We have enjoyed a great relationship with Quorum over the years, and were delighted with how quickly Quorum was able to get our new franchise running," he added.

In October, the XSELLERATOR product was certified for U.S. Chrysler dealers. Quorum said it continues to develop valuable integration between XSELLERATOR and other automakers.

"Quorum is both proud and excited to make this announcement today. Expanding our reach to Chrysler dealers is part of a long-term strategic plan to grow our presence in North America," shared Maury Marks, Quorum's president and chief executive officer.

"Quorum has a lot to offer Chrysler dealers in Canada, and this is a significant opportunity for us that results in an immediate increase in Quorum's available Canadian market of 47 percent," he continued. "This is also a key step in our strategy to expand our OEM franchise coverage."
