PORTLAND, Ore. -- Chrome Systems Inc., a subsidiary of DealerTrack Holdings Inc., has partnered with Automotive Information Systems Inc. (AIS) to deliver comprehensive and accurate rebate and incentive information on new vehicles to the retail automotive industry.
This relationship will allow Chrome to integrate detailed automotive incentive data into its offerings for the first time.
Delivered through web service technology with real-time automatic data updates, AIS rebate products are designed for seamless integration with the inventory shown on retail automotive websites.
