AutoMate DMS

Started as a DMS. Still a DMS.

Auto/Mate, one of the industry’s first Dealership Management Systems (DMS), was developed by Wang Laboratories in the 1970’s.


Wang was a well-known calculator and word-processing company. When calculators became unprofitable, Wang began manufacturing mini and mid-frame computers with the intention of overtaking market-leader IBM.

Wang computers became extremely popular amongst auto dealers. At one point, more than two-thirds of the nation’s dealerships ran their business using a Wang computer system. Steve Fullum, a college professor who was contacted by Wang and asked to create a software program to help dealers calculate payments and do their accounting. The program Fullum developed was called Auto/Mate, the first F&I system for dealers. Wang dominated the DMS market for several years with this product.

By the mid-1990’s, the company had grown to over 10 employees, with Fullum selling one Auto/Mate Dealer Management System every couple of months.

Today, Auto/Mate has approximately 135 employees and a customer base of over 1,150 dealerships nationwide. Many Auto/Mate clients have been using the system since it was first marketed and sold by Wang.

Traffic Control was designed FOR dealers BY dealers, and exists solely to make the difficult undertaking of dealership control MANAGEABLE and PROFITABLE!
