The company will reveal the name and specific features of its new DMS, along with details on the future of FEX DMS and AutoStar software, in a special live presentation followed by open Q&A at the upcoming Texas Independent Automobile Dealers Association (TIADA) conference.

"Nearly 2,000 independent dealerships across the country – and at least one out of every three TIADA members – use either FEX DMS or AutoStar Solutions. We're thrilled to meet with our customers in person and share the future roadmap of both brands," Rajan said. "This is the first time we will address all the questions they've been wondering about. What do these acquisitions mean to me? Will I be able to keep my current DMS? And for how long? What will the new software look like?"

Levi added, "The landscape for independent dealers is changing – from compliance to competition for inventory and customers, as well as access to tools to compete in the marketplace. DealerSocket's integrated approach to managing inventory and customers, marketing, and loan servicing is uncharted territory in the independent dealer market. We look forward to previewing these exciting plans for our loyal users."
