Auto/Mate Dealership Systems says it has successfully developed all Toyota interfaces available to connect its Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) with Toyota's dealer communication system, Dealer Daily.
Auto/Mate completed the interfaces after 12 months of participation in a pilot project to create open standards for communications between Toyota dealerships and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc.
The AMPS interfaces will connect its various modules with TMS via a web-based portal, allowing for electronic transmission of items such as warranty claims, parts orders and returns, repair orders and new-vehicle delivery information. It is intended to save dealers administrative time.
The technology developed by Toyota is based on standards set by the Standards for Technology in Automotive Retail, an organization that promotes the use of non-proprietary technology. STAR's mission is to fulfill the business information needs of dealers and manufacturers while reducing the time and effort.
