Mobile Productivity and PBS Systems Announce Partnership

April 17, 2007

LAS VEGAS — Mobile Productivity Inc. (MPi), provider of profitability tools for auto dealer service departments, announced the integration of its Advanced Repair Guidance Information System (ARGIS) with PBS Systems. PBS is the third largest provider and largest Microsoft based Dealer Management System provider in North America. The PBS software is designed to create synergy between all departments in a dealership through easily navigated Windows based applications. ARGIS enables progressive service departments to increase efficiencies and profits by streamlining vehicle diagnostics using a customized repair information system that easily walks a technician and service advisor through the diagnosis using OEM data, all supportive wiring diagrams and service information.

ARGIS also provides service departments the ability to perform World Class Inspections that effectively increase customer pay sales using a customized inspection report, Know Your Vehicle. The detailed inspection process gives service departments the ability to maximize all the revenue that's available to them. The integration between PBS and ARGIS will create a high level of efficiency for participating dealerships by eliminating the need to re-enter data into ARGIS. Dealers operating on the PBS platform can now pull information from the DMS directly into ARGIS and populate the system with all appropriate customer information.

"Our World Class Inspection program provides dealers with a set of tools to effectively manage the process of inspections with guaranteed success and profitability," said Les Silver, MPi's president and CEO. "PBS's position as a technology leader and quality image in the marketplace made integration an easy choice and will certainly benefit a good number of our dealer customers.”

Dealers using ARGIS are performing a better inspection and doing a superior job of explaining needed repairs to the customer, realizing benefits that average $100 to $125 in additional needed repairs per vehicle inspection, a substantial increase in revenue per RO. With ARGIS, PBS dealers are better positioned to manage and increase the profitability of their service departments.
