New automatic data feed updates inventory information

ADP Lightspeed, a provider of dealer management systems, announced its new automatic unit-inventory Web feed.

Unit information inside the LightspeedEVO DMS can be fed to dealership Web sites, eliminating double entry. The data feed allows any Web site provider to map to the information.

"Dealers can't let information on their Web sites get stale," said Chris Hauck, product manager for ADP Lightspeed, in a statement. "Yet most dealers lack the resources to dedicate someone to update inventory information from their DMS to their Web site. This data feed allows them to do the updates automatically, saving time and giving the dealers the ability to capitalize on Internet opportunities."
