Acquisition Further Strengthens ADP Dealer Services’ Product Leadership in Canada

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – October 31, 2013 – The Dealer Services division of ADP® , a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, today announced that they have acquired One-Eighty CORP., a provider of leading-edge sales, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and related software to the Canadian automobile dealer market.

Based in Waterloo, Ontario, ONE-EIGHTY CORP. specializes in cloud-based, mobile-enabled applications used by Canadian automobile dealers in a seamless, customer-facing Sales process. The data captured during that process and through integration with the Dealer Management System (DMS) is then leveraged for smart customer and prospect retention. Their solutions allow dealers to manage CRM, menu-based selling, finance and leasing, inventory, leads, Business Development Center (BDC), and credit applications.

Founded in 2000, ONE-EIGHTY CORP. supports nearly all major manufacturer brands and has been an approved ADP Dealer Services’ vendor since 2010, as part of ADP Dealer Services’ Third Party Access Program.

ONE-EIGHTY CORP. is a powerful complement to ADP Dealer Services’ current Front Office and DMS solutions in Canada, delivering innovative, integrated solutions that help dealers engage their customers as well as increase productivity and gross on every car they sell and finance. In addition to seamless integration with the ADP DMS, ONE-EIGHTY CORP. products are fully compatible with other companies’ DMS software—a valuable feature that ADP Dealer Services will continue to provide moving forward.

“ONE-EIGHTY CORP. extends our product leadership. Because it is delivered as ‘software as a service,’ it’s 100% web-based and the information needed to sell a car—like pricing, financing, promotions, tax and more—can be updated in real time for our dealership users. Plus, the customer-engaging Sales process can all be done on a mobile device, making the car buying process less error-prone and more efficient for everyone involved—dealers, manufacturers and consumers," said Dean Anton, General Manager of ADP Dealer Services’ Canadian region.

Anton added, “Similar to Dealer Services, ONE-EIGHTY CORP. embraces the agile product development process, so they are able to evolve the solution rapidly to stay relevant to the marketplace’s needs."

“At ONE-EIGHTY CORP., we are delighted to work with ADP to expand our innovative product offerings, our integrations and our customer base. The fit with ADP is very important to us, and our goals of bringing innovative solutions to automotive dealers match. Joining forces with ADP will bring an exciting growth opportunity to ONE-EIGHTY CORP. with a ‘business as usual’ attitude toward our current and future customers," said Kerry Mueller, President of ONE-EIGHTY CORP.
