Concord, NH, January 17, 2006 -- DealerScope Software LLC, a world-class software provider for car & truck dealerships, today announced that since installation of DealerAlert, Acura of Peabody, MA, has experienced a 35% growth in service and parts and expanded its service department into the highest grossing in the North East. The dealer group, which includes Audi and Porsche of Nashua, NH, has also enjoyed annual savings of close to $100,000 with the software’s unique real-time management alerts.

“I’m a control freak and DealerAlert allows me to keep the pulse of my dealerships at all times. If there’s a problem, I know about it instantly. Before DealerAlert I had to wade through a long monthly report and with such an overwhelming amount of information, would invariably miss some critical operational issue,” said Joel Avery, General Manager for the dealer group.

According to Avery, for any area he wants to watch closely, DealerScope programs his DealerAlert software to track and deliver the information instantly, in real- time, via email. One area Avery watches that is renowned as a trouble spot for dealers is the selling of parts and service labor for too little gross profit. Avery has DealerAlert set to alert managers immediately if this should occur. “The system easily saves my dealerships $75,000-$100,000 each year,” Avery commented.

DealerAlert radically changes the way information is retrieved and reviewed. It delivers real-time critical, executive management information from a dealership’s ADP system to the dealer principal and managers. The information is first analyzed, filtered and then immediately forwarded to management personnel at any location—in the office, out on the lot, or even at home.

With its smart technology, DealerAlert can reduce stacks of paper into a single ‘Alert’ containing only the pertinent information. Alerts are different from traditional management reports in four key areas: They are intelligent, real-time, proactive, and multi-company.

“DealerAlert turns current information retrieval on its head by reaching out to the dealer instead of vice-versa. Dealers no longer have to wait for someone else to run and analyze reports for them. Alerts are delivered to them wherever they are via Internet e-mail, FAX, pager, cell phone, or PDA. Just by reading a few alerts each day, dealers are increasing profits and decreasing their problem areas,” commented David Schneider, DealerScope co-founder.

DealerScope Software has enjoyed a year of company expansion and product development. Based on feedback from dealer customers, several new alert features have been created and a new and expanded version of DealerAlert will be unveiled at the 2006 NADA show in Orlando, Florida, February 11-14 at booth 3915.
