CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – Feb. 28, 2011) – Quorum Information Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QIS) (Quorum) announced today that it has earned integration certification for its flagship product, XSellerator™, with Kia Canada Inc. (“Kia”) and is now a recommended dealership management system for Kia dealers across Canada.
Quorum worked closely with Kia and our beta test dealership, Hudson's Listowel Kia, to achieve this certification. Currently, there are several Canadian Kia dealerships operating their franchises with XSellerator. The new integration features include electronic financial statement submission, parts ordering, warranty claims submission, and parts file updates. Quorum also offers integration with Kia's electronic parts catalogue.
“We have used Quorum's XSellerator DMS at our GM store since 2004. We were absolutely delighted when Kia announced that Quorum was one of the select few DMS providers chosen by Kia to develop factory integration. So, we switched our Kia store to Quorum immediately,” commented Becky Eidt, Controller, Hudson's Listowel Kia, Ontario.
“Working with Kia to become one of the first dealer management systems to be certified with them has been a pleasure and we sincerely appreciate the opportunity to offer our modern high-value system to Kia dealers in Canada. But, this is only the beginning as Kia is planning more integration in the future, and Quorum is excited to continue to bring more value to the dealers as one of their selected DMS providers,” said Mark Allen, Quorum's Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Services.
