ALBANY, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has integrated its DMS with Dealer Wizard, a provider of database intelligence solutions for auto dealerships. Dealers who use both Auto/Mate’s DMS and Dealer Wizard’s suite of equity mining, performance metrics and service drive solutions will benefit from the real-time data exchange between the two systems, according to Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate.

“Dealer Wizard offers a comprehensive product suite to help dealers improve marketing and operation decisions, by allowing them to understand and leverage their data with advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence,” Esposito said.

Dealer Wizard is billed as the auto industry’s only true database intelligence solution for dealers wishing to capitalize on the power of big data. Auto/Mate designed its Open/Mate program using open standards to provide an affordable integration experience for third-party vendors. Auto/Mate’s directors have said they don’t believe in charging large certification fees because those costs get passed directly to the dealership, noting that, the more vendors that integrate with each other, the greater cost savings dealerships can achieve and the more vendor choices they have.

 “Auto/Mate’s Open/Mate program makes it easy and affordable for third-party vendors to integrate with their DMS, allowing for greater flexibility to service clients more effectively. We’re very pleased with the Open/Mate program,” said Ross Bauer, COO of Dealer Wizard.
