Automotive Computer Services (ACS) Announces Addition Of Document Management To Its Dealer Management System (DMS)

MOBILE, AL – Automotive Computer Services, a pioneer in Windows® based dealer management systems, announced today its new document management application. This is the company’s latest enhancement to its ACCESS® DMS suite and its stand alone ACSFirst™ front end application. The new release includes the ability to store a wide spectrum of scanned images such as invoices, checks, credit applications, and signed contract documents in a variety of formats, as well as system generated reports. As an added benefit, the documents can be securely viewed throughout the entire network.

As with other enhancements, the document management upgrade is free to existing ACS dealers. There are no additional hardware or software requirements. The only requirement is for dealers to provide a scanner.
