OTTAWA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 7, 2000
The Dealer Services Group of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NYSE:AUD) - An innovative lease program focusing on keeping Canadian automotive dealers current with personal computing technology is now available from ADP(R) Credit Corp Canada and ADP Dealer Services Canada.
The Technology Lease is designed to complement the introduction of the new PC-based Alliance(TM) dealer management system (DMS) - the industry's first bilingual system - and Sales Alliance(TM). The Technology Lease provides for fixed monthly rentals with automatic PC hardware replacement by ADP at the mid-point of the lease.
"The Technology Lease provides our clients with yet another example of ADP's commitment to continue as the preeminent provider of leading-edge solutions to the retail automotive sector in Canada," said Dean Anton, Vice President and General Manager of ADP Dealer Services Canada. "This program eliminates that age-old problem of technology catch-up - while it allows dealers to become information technology leaders using the Alliance family of products. This is a big win for Canadian dealers."
Brad Ackroyd, Canadian Regional Manager, ADP Credit Corp, said dealers fully recognize that regularly upgraded PC hardware is essential if they are to realize the full software functionality now being introduced into the marketplace.
"This new Technology Lease offers retailers an economical solution while enjoying the peace of mind that ADP will keep that technology current for the full term of the lease," Ackroyd said.
