Auto/Mate Integrates Mazda's Communication Systems

May 04, 2010

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has completed two key integration points between its Automotive Management Productivity Suite and Mazda North American Operations’ dealership communication system.

The integration improves administrative efficiencies in two vital areas: the Mazda Vehicle Invoice and Mazda Service Campaign/Recall functions.

The Mazda Vehicle Invoice integration is a new vehicle merchandizing functionality that enables Mazda dealers to automatically import all vehicle invoices directly from Mazda into Auto/Mate. They add a stock number and dealer specific entries and then send directly to accounting. 

Auto/Mate’s Mazda service campaign/recall integration allows Mazda dealers to obtain any open campaigns or recalls on a specific vehicle from Mazda, when opening or modifying a repair order, and add it to a RO line.

“We all know the old adage that time is money. Improved efficiency is ever more important in today’s economy and we are delighted by how well this new integration has worked for our Mazda dealers,” said Mike Esposito, CEO and president of Auto/Mate.

Mazda dealers are delighted with the speed and efficiency the new integration points add to the system.

“The new Mazda integration from Auto/Mate is great. They have made putting inventory into the Auto/Mate system so simple and easy,” said Deb Judd, inventory manager at Polar Chevrolet Mazda. “It has sped up the process so much and left me time for other tasks. The information going into Auto/Mate from Mazda is so complete and accurate.”

Auto/Mate improves the following functions on the Mazda Vehicle Invoice integration:

• Mazda will provide Auto/Mate with a feed of all the vehicle invoices for a particular dealership on a daily basis.

• The dealer can import all vehicle invoices directly from Mazda into Auto/Mate, add a stock number and any dealer specific entries and send to accounting

• The integration eliminates the need for manual and double entry of data in multiple fields, lessening the room for human error because the process is now automated

• Each invoice can be viewed as a report

• The system provides an import log of all vehicles delivered by Mazda to the dealership

Auto/Mate improves the following functions on the Mazda Service Campaign/Recall integration:

• Mazda dealers can obtain any open campaigns or recalls from Mazda when opening or modifying a repair order.

• The dealer can then indicate to the customer that their vehicle has these open campaigns and if the customer agrees, add one or multiple items to the repair order.
