DealerSocket Announces Integration With FetchAQuote.com


SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — DealerSocket’s newly launched iDMS platform for independent dealers is now integrated with FetchAQuote.com (Fetch), an electronic auto insurance service, the companies announced this week.

Independent dealers can use Fetch, which offers a large selection of nonstandard insurers that specialize in insuring customers with poor credit and bad driving histories, to help their customers secure affordable car insurance quotes in a matter of seconds, according to the companies.

“Our independent dealers often work with customers who have no insurance or are extremely difficult to insure. One of the biggest benefits of offering Fetch to iDMS users is that it helps buyers get insured quickly, cheaply and at all hours of the day. We focus on integrations that will save our dealers time and money. Fetch does both, so we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership,” said Jennifer Lee, vice president, product development at DealerSocket.

Fetch is accessible to iDMS users without a login or password. They can simply click on the “More” icon and select “Save Customers Money on Car Insurance” within the Deals module in iDMS. From start to finish, according to the companies, the entire process takes less than six minutes.

Traffic Control’s Product Suite Now Available Through Auto/Mate’s DMS


ALBANY, N.Y. — Auto/Mate announced this week plans to integrate Traffic Control’s customer relationship management (CRM), internet lead management (ILM) and employee activity management (EAM) systems into its own dealership management system (DMS).

The integration, officials claimed, should deliver enhanced sales, lead and productivity management capabilities to users of both Auto/Mate and Traffic Control solutions.

“Traffic Control’s employee activity management system takes CRM and ILM functionality to another level, because it gives dealership employees both a destination and directions on how to get there,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate Dealership Systems. “Employees are assigned specific tasks so their productivity has a purpose, instead of just doing busywork that doesn’t get results.”

According to Traffic Control Founder Brendan Hurley, users of both companies’ solutions should not expect to see higher costs for the products due to the integration of their systems.

“Auto/Mate’s integration process is very affordable which is great because we don’t have to pass high integration and certification costs through to our dealer customers,” Hurley said. “We share Auto/Mate’s roots: we are car people. The familiarity and ease that dealers experience using Auto/Mate is shared by Traffic Control users.”

Dealers who use eContracting with Frazer DMS integration will find the process to be error-free and even more efficient.”

By entering just the VIN and mileage, the F&I Express platform automatically displays the plans available and calculates the contract price.

Customer satisfaction increases with a faster, error-free process which saves time at the dealership. Additionally, Frazer Software customers now have access to over 120 providers through the connection with F&I Express, an exceptional increase over their current network.
