Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has integrated its dealership management system (DMS) with Vitu, Motor Vehicle Software Corporation’s (MVSC) national electronic tax, title and registration platform for automotive dealerships (known as “DMVdesk” in California).
Through its integration program, Open/Mate, Auto/Mate customers who use the Vitu platform can now perform processes in real-time — such as pull deal data, generate Virtual Reports of Sale and ultimately, Temp Tags.
“Regulatory requirements are difficult to keep up with, but the Vitu platform makes it easy with new technologies that support the changing needs of state departments of motor vehicles and dealerships,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate.
“Integration with a top-tier DMS provider allows us to expand our customer base and help dealerships improve the efficiency of necessary, but time-consuming tasks,” said Joe Nemelka, president/COO of Vitu. “The integration process with Auto/Mate’s DMS was inexpensive, fast and painless.”
Auto/Mate customers can use the Vitu solution to streamline their registration and titling process for new and used vehicles. This platform makes it easy to identify and track title and status listings while providing transparency, accuracy and security. Additionally, Vitu ensures compliance during the full duration of a vehicle’s life. Vitu currently operates in California, Oregon, Illinois, Virginia and Montana.
Auto/Mate’s integration program, Open/Mate, is based on open standards, allowing third-party vendors to easily integrate with the DMS. Some DMS providers charge third parties expensive certification fees, the cost of which is usually passed onto their auto dealer customers. Auto/Mate’s open integration program keeps integration costs low for vendors, saving auto dealers money while providing them with more vendor choices.
