ALBANY, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has received a "Platinum" award in the 2014 Auto Dealer Monthly Dealers' Choice Awards. This year marks the first time that Auto/Mate was honored with a top ranking in the magazine's annual award program, which recognizes the industry's best product and service providers as selected by hundreds of dealers and dealership personnel.
"To receive this recognition is a real honor because the votes for Auto/Mate came from our customers, and this Platinum award lets me know that we are successful in our primary goal, which is to be the top dealership management system provider in customer satisfaction," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate.
In May, readers of Auto Dealer Monthly, F&I and Showroom’s sister publication, cast their vote on their favorite partners in 27 categories. Providers were scored on the product or service itself, customer support and service, value, and whether they would recommend the company to another dealer. To qualify for a first-place “Diamond,” second-place “Platinum” or third-place “Gold” award, a company must be among those that scored above the group average score in each category.
Auto/Mate was also recently honored with the "Highest Rated" dealership management system (DMS) vendor award in the 2012 and 2013 DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards. In 2014, Auto/Mate also received a "Top Workplace" award for the third consecutive year by the Albany Times-Union, and a "Best Place to Work" award for the fourth year in a row by the Albany Business Review.
