Dealerbaby Announces Integration of Mobile App Platform with Auto/Mate Dealership Management System (DMS)
Integration Improves Shopping & Service Experience for Auto Dealer Customers
Saratoga Springs, NY – September 9, 2014 : Dealerbaby (http://www.dealerbaby.com/), a custom mobile app platform for auto dealerships, is proud to announce its integration with Auto/Mate’s Open/Mate third-party integration system. Users of Auto/Mate can now experience the benefits of a native mobile app without the high costs associated with custom mobile app development. With Dealerbaby, auto dealerships can increase customer retention, profits and leads, and become a leader of the mobile dealership community.
“Our partnership with Auto/Mate gives us the ability to create a powerful user experience by letting the customer interact with the dealership on the device they use the most—their smartphone,” said Padraic Doyle, Co-Founder of Dealerbaby. “The key is the two-way communication with the DMS, which is made possible with Open/Mate.”
“More car shoppers are using smartphones and tablets to shop for cars, and mobile apps are easier to use than browsing a mobile website,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. “DMS integration ensures that all inventory and service data is displayed to customers in real time, reflecting all updates in your dealer’s DMS.”
To help improve the mobile experience for auto dealerships and their customers, Dealerbaby integrated the following features in its platform with Auto/Mate’s DMS:
• Service Appointment Scheduling: Dealership apps on the Dealerbaby platform display service schedules, available service appointments, and offer users the ability to schedule various services all within the dealership’s mobile app.
• Inventory Listings: The Dealerbaby mobile app platform displays inventory updates in real-time as the inventory is updated in Auto/Mate’s DMS.
Auto/Mate’s DMS is a full-featured, user-friendly solution that is scalable for any size dealership or dealer group. The system comes with the best customer support in the industry and is available in both web-based and in-house server solutions.
