This week, Motive Retail and Autosoft formally announced its new partnership via this press release. In the seven years leading up this exciting new relationship, Autosoft had leveraged Motive Retail’s certification platform, Motive Integrator Certify, to publish specifications, test and ultimately certify partner systems to integrate to Autosoft Flex DMS.
In the wake of releasing its next generation DMS, Autosoft GO, Autosoft stood up for change and wanted to further simplify and improve the process of DMS integration for third party vendors. It was time to end the madness of more one-off integrations and get into the MIX!
Now, third-party vendors can integrate to any of the Motive Integrator eXchange (MIX) standardized APIs, which facilitate data exchanges for common dealership business use cases (CRM, sales, parts, service, etc.), and let MIX handle the variations in integration requirements on the back end to Autosoft Flex, Autosoft GO, and multiple other DMS. Not only do third-party vendors who integrate to Flex via MIX get to sit back and relax while their systems seamlessly maintain integration to Go, they now have a “one-to-many” option for integrations to several other DMS (see who’s in the MIX DMS network here).
We are proud to partner with Autosoft to support the free-flow of data in automotive retail.
