ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has integrated its dealership management system (DMS) with myCarfax Service Shop tools to help their dealer customers increase the success of their fixed operations. This enhancement makes it easier for dealers using Auto/Mate software to join the myCarfax Service Shop program and take advantage of the program's benefits. Auto/Mate subscribers that are also myCarfax Service Shops have access to the newly-integrated tools, which include Carfax Service History Check.
Carfax Service History Check shows a car's reported maintenance history which, when combined with other myCarfax benefits like Carfax QuickVIN, helps service technicians make the best service recommendations to their customers, avoid parts-ordering errors and, ultimately, increase revenue.
"Having the myCarfax tools fully integrated into our DMS helps our dealers improve the speed, efficiency and accuracy of servicing their customers' vehicles," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. "It's part of our commitment to providing the very best solutions we can that give dealers the best chance for success and customer satisfaction."
In addition, dealers now can enroll customers in myCarfax.com with one click from the Auto/Mate DMS. A free desktop and mobile app service, myCarfax.com helps car owners stay informed about maintenance and recalls on their vehicles, and sends reminders when it's time to bring their car back for the next recommended service.
"Successful dealers are using the power of Carfax information to gain competitive advantage in the automotive service industry," said Vern Poyner, general manager at Carfax. "Auto/Mate's enhanced system is helping meet the needs of dealers around the country that are part of the myCarfax Service Shop program."
