ALBANY, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has updated its dealership management system (DMS) accounting suite, adding new features to its inquiry screen data entry, automated intercompany accounts payable and general postings, and cash receipt templates.

“A common problem with DMS accounting suites is that the end user is required to navigate through many screens in order to access, enter and change information,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Our updates make it possible for a user to access everything from a single menu, which greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to accomplish certain tasks.”

The inquiry screen data entry update will allow users to make data adjustments right from the inquiry screen. Users will also be able to build accounting setups that allow the user to have predefined sets of accounts.

The update to the technology firm's automated inter-company accounts payable will allow users to automatically post expenses across multiple companies or accounts, while the update to inter-company general postings will allow inventory to be moved between companies with a simple journal entry.

The company's Cash-receipt templates will now allow accounting offices to crate user-defined cash receipt templates for each individual role in the dealership. Additionally, accounting personnel will be able to automatically generate a deposit slip based on cash receipts just added to the system.

Auto/Mate will have a demo available at the 2016 NADA Convention & Expo. For more, visit
