Fixed Performance: Margin Plus

Margin Plus is a Manufacturer Warranty Reimbursement Program that optimizes dealerships’ profit margins on warranty repairs.  They have been helping dealerships focus on maximizing results in fixed operations for over 15 years.

DOUG THOMPSON, Vice President

“Motive Integrator Exchange (MIX) provided a straightforward endpoint to integrate our application with multiple Dealer Management Systems using a single interface. Certification with individual DMS’s APIs takes time and to only have to do it once with Motive was a great boost in efficiency. Our integration coordinator, Dale, was responsive to our needs and helped guide us through the certification process and into production interacting with our client’s systems.”

Gratis Solutions

Gratis Solutions provides a suite of website, electronic multi-point inspection and secure online payment solutions to dealerships.  They recently leveraged Motive Integrator eXchange to integrate to Autosoft.

SAPHURA LONG, CEO/President

“A dealer using Autosoft recently engaged Gratis Tech with interest in our product techWall, which addresses the management of fixed operations of an auto dealership.  Autosoft, like many other popular DMS with long-standing footprints in automotive, has some legacy infrastructure which can make communicating with newer sophisticated technologies challenging.  techWall has a very unique structure that requires in depth bi-directional communication with the DMS –  we faced a daunting task.  In came Motive Integrator eXchange.  Dale Novotniak and his team have incredible knowledge of Autosoft and other DMS systems and their help to us in the case of Autosoft has been immeasurable and greatly appreciated.  We strongly recommend companies interested in interfacing with other DMS systems to communicate with Motive as they might be able to pave the way for a great experience for both the dealer and vendor.”
