Bluebird Integrates with Auto/Mate DMS

Bluebird’s RentWorks Vehicle Rental Software Interfaces With The AUTO/MATE Dealership Management System

Dover, NJ USA. – Bluebird Auto Rental Systems, L.P. is pleased to introduce the interface to a third party accounting system: the Auto/Mate Dealership Management System.

Bluebird’s RentWorks interfaces with Auto/Mate’s General Ledger and Accounts Receivable modules. Data is configured for the former via the “General Ledger Setup” in RentWorks. The Chart of Accounts is entered so that it matches the account numbers in Auto/Mate.  Journal Entries are then created via the Daily Business Report. Once a cutoff date is entered, any unposted debit or credit is included in a file to be imported into Auto/Mate.

Accounts Receivable entries are also created when posting the Daily Business Report, whenever there is a payment with a type of Direct Bill. If a unique range of transaction numbers is not set up for invoice numbers, the rental agreement number is used. Use of an AR# is optional, as the company or renter name is used to post transactions from RentWorks to Auto/Mate.

“As we focus more and more on the dealership market, we are pleased to add Auto/Mate to our list of interfaces, as they allow us a wider range of dealers” says Angela Margolit, President of Bluebird Auto Rental Systems. “We pride ourselves on the ability to address and take care of the needs of any size dealer, no matter how simple or complex they may be.”

Commenting on the integration, Auto/Mate CEO Mike Esposito stated, “The integration should streamline the accounting process for Bluebird Auto Rental System dealers. For Immediate Release Whenever and wherever we can help a dealer save time, we know we’re improving their bottom line.”

RentWorks is a windows-based business management system for vehicle rental companies, running on Progress Software’s Enterprise database. It can be purchased for use on-premises or via the internet.
