CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems’ new Open/Mate program will allow third-party software vendors to fully integrate with Auto/Mate’s dealership management system (DMS).

With Open/Mate, all data exchanged between an auto dealer’s DMS and third-party software systems is delivered instantly and securely in both directions. Open/Mate offers “push notifications” that will provide real-time data updates and lower costs due to more vendor choices. 

“When dealers are selecting vendors to work with, integration with the DMS should not be a factor,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “We have long been an advocate of open standards in this industry as a way to increase competition, lower prices and improve the quality of products offered by all vendors.”
