MAM Software Inc. (NASDAQ: MAMS), a leading provider of automotive business management solutions, has returned from a very successful and productive Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW). AAIW took place Nov. 1-4, 2016, and MAM attended both major trade exhibitions: the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) and the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA). The exhibitions were held at the Sands Expo Convention Center and the Las Vegas Convention Center, respectively.
During AAPEX, the company showcased updates to its business management solutions, including the latest version of Autopart, its Windows-based point-of-sale, inventory and e-commerce system for parts distributors, dealers and jobbers.
It also presented Autopart Online, a Software as a Service (SaaS) version of Autopart that uses fully managed, remotely-hosted servers to eliminate the need for in-house server hardware and maintenance. The software has been made using Microsoft.NET to improve its speed and is future-proofed to be compatible with subsequent operating systems.
MAM also demonstrated a range of complementary solutions, including its Warehouse Management Software (WMS) module. Integrating fully with Autopart, it offers extensive capabilities to manage stock movements throughout a warehouse, giving a clear, accurate picture of warehouse inventory at all times.
At SEMA, MAM demonstrated the most recent version (8.2) of its well-known tire dealer software, VAST. These included integration with MyCARFAX, Epicor’s Lasercat3 catalog, and improvements to vTire lookup. A new feature for selling lifetime service warranties was also unveiled, along with enhanced options to control discounts.
In addition, MAM introduced new tablet applications that offer detailed vehicle inspection data and streamlined inventory management. These provide new electronic forms for commercial road service and wholesale tire deliveries allow for simpler record keeping.
“We had a productive week at both AAPEX and SEMA. We had the chance to meet with a number of prospects, showing them how our products can help their business to achieve great results. In addition, we were able to catch up with current customers and introduce many of our new product enhancements.” said Lance Brierley, General Manager of MAM Software Inc.
“Our integration with Autoserve1 received a very positive level of interest at the SEMA show. We are looking forward to growing our partnership with them and providing our customers with an industry leading solution.”
