Stocks in this article: MAMS

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  MAM Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAMS), a leading provider of business management solutions, will demonstrate its VAST Business Management Software for automotive service providers at Meineke Car Care Center's International Franchisee Convention on October 7 th at Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Florida.  Franchisees will learn how VAST has helped fellow Meineke center owners manage daily business operations, including estimating, sales, order processing and extensive business reporting.

The demonstration coincides with VAST's upcoming version release.  Arriving at the end of October, the new release  will provide a host of new features, including  integrations with Full Slate and CARFAX to further streamline manual processes, improve the customer experience  and better maintain accurate data in one system.

The integration with Full Slate will enable VAST users to accept customer appointments online at www.meineke.com, allowing for greater customer satisfaction and increased business thanks to non-business hours functionality.  Since its partnership with Meineke in 2012, Full Slate has become a fundamental part of each center's business, making its VAST integration essential to competitive advantage.

Users will also benefit from the customer intake procedure that employs CARFAX to populate the vehicle's year, make and model simply by entering a license plate number.   CARFAX provides automotive shops with immense value by allowing employees to quickly search for a vehicle's history using a vehicle identification number (VIN).  Shops can also use CARFAX for easier parts look-up and ordering, ensuring they get the right part the first time.

"We're excited for Meineke Convention attendees to get a 'first glimpse' of our new integrations in action," said Bill Klepeiss, President of MAM Software's VAST Division.  "Many businesses are moving toward services like Full Slate and CARFAX to manage their operations more easily, so it's important that our customers - that include over 100 Meineke centers - rely on us to deliver technology that will keep supporting them in the future."

Meineke franchisees that use VAST business management software achieve benefits like:

  • Faster processing of vehicles to get customers through faster
  • Automated decision processes that eliminate employee guesswork, ensuring accurate margins are applied
  • Automated parts ordering gives immediate information on availability and the best price on goods
  • Less time on the phone and Internet chasing down parts give employees more face-time with customers
  • Improved productivity lets staff view supplier parts inventory and place orders in seconds
  • Detailed and customizable reports that identify trends and increase sales

VAST also includes an integrated parts catalog and labor guide to accelerate the estimating process while ensuring all jobs are profitable.
