Auto/Mate Dealership Systems president and chief executive officer Mike Esposito describes manufacturer rules and state laws that govern retail warranty reimbursement as “varied and complex.”
To ease that complexity, Auto/Mate has completed all dealership management system (DMS) integrations with Armatus Dealer Uplift.
“We’re pleased that our customers now have an option to simplify this process and substantially increase parts profits,” Esposito said in a news release.
With real-time integration between the two systems, Auto/Mate said auto dealers can expedite their retail warranty parts reimbursement submissions.
Auto/Mate says that with Armatus Dealer Uplift, dealers can collect retail reimbursement for warranty parts “without having to lift a finger or pay an upfront investment.”
The company says that Armatus Dealer Uplift’s dealership clients gain $80,000 to $100,000 per year on average in additional profit per store.
With the Parts Module in Auto/Mate’s DMS, auto dealers can more easily manage their part department’s daily functions and inventory, according to Auto/Mate. The company also said that with OEM integrations, placing parts orders is easy.
Open/Mate is Auto/Mate's integration program that is based on open standards. Because of that, the company says, integration between third-party vendors and the DMS is easier, according to the company.
“Integrating our system with Auto/Mate’s DMS was fast and inexpensive, thanks to the Open/Mate program,” said Armatus Dealer Upfit managing partner Joe Jankowski. “We appreciate Auto/Mate’s philosophy that an open integration program provides auto dealers with more vendor choices and more affordable vendor options.”
