Auto/Mate Completes All System Integrations With Toyota

February 04, 2011

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has successfully developed the interfaces to connect its Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) with Toyota's dealer communication system, Dealer Daily.

Auto/Mate completed the interfaces after 12 months of participation in a pilot project to create open standards for communications between Toyota dealerships and Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. (TMS).

The AMPS interfaces will connect its various modules with TMS via a Web-based portal, allowing for electronic transmission of items such as warranty claims, parts orders/returns and new-vehicle delivery information. Auto/Mate said this instant and seamless delivery of business-critical information will save dealers valuable administrative time.

"My dealerships have been using the pilot interfaces for the past six months and have found the integrations to be quite user-friendly, seamless and very efficient for my people," says Warren Price, owner of Price Automotive Group. "Toyota dealers will be overjoyed that they now have alternative DMS vendors to consider."

The technology developed by Toyota is based on standards set by the Standards for Technology in Automotive Retail (STAR), an organization that promotes the use of non-proprietary technology. STAR's mission is to fulfill the business information needs of dealers and manufacturers while reducing the time and effort required to support related activities.

Auto/Mate developed the following interfaces that adhere closely to STAR standards and create seamless communications between AMPS and TMS:

• Parts Order / Return / Inventory / Shipper / Master

• Repair Order

• Vehicle Inventory Adjustment - Inbound / Outbound

• Warranty Payment "Upload"

• Op Code / Labor Time Guides

• Retail Delivery Report

• Credit Contract

• Financial Statement
