DMS Incorporates Carfax

DMS Incorporates Carfax Featured

Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has integrated its dealership management system 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. In addition, dealers now can enroll customers in myCarfax.com with one click from the Auto/Mate DMS.

    Average incentive spending through the first three weeks of February is $3,840, down $14 versus the same period last year, according to J.D. Power and LMC Automotive.

In December 2017 for example, spending rose by over $400 from the prior year.The decline is due to reduced spending in select segments of the industry, specifically, trucks and SUVs offered by domestic manufacturers. Incentives on domestic trucks and SUVs have fallen $450 through month-to-date. In contrast, incentives on non-domestic trucks and SUVs have risen $482 and spending on all cars is up $80.
