Autosoft Signs Carfolks to FLEX Connect Integration Program

West Middlesex, PA (PRWEB) April 20, 2014

Leading dealer management system (DMS) provider Autosoft, Inc. (http://www.autosoftyoudrive.com) announced today that Carfolks, an integrated marketing and employee retention solution, has become a partner in Autosofts third party integration program, FLEX Connect.

The Carfolks solution helps build trust and loyalty with customers and prospects, while, improving employee satisfaction and retention at the same time. With the Carfolks online community network, dealers are able to build, protect, and enhance their online reputation, and engage shoppers who are looking for the best dealerships in their neighborhood. By creating individual profiles for each employee within the dealership, customers can post comments publicly to recognize and share positive sales and service experiences by specific employee.

These engagement tools generate positive organic word-of-mouth advertising to bring consumers into the dealership, and create a mechanism to recognize and retain good employees. The Carfolks program piggy backs on existing advertising placements, so the dealership sees no increase in their traditional marketing budget, and helps the dealer manage operational expenses by reducing employee turnover.

The partnership will provide Autosoft customers with tools to raise their online visibility, strengthen brand loyalty, and reduce expenses for training and hiring of employees, said Christopher Morris, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Autosoft. We are pleased to have Carfolks as a partner in our FLEX Connect data access program, Morris continued, To kick off our partnership, Carfolks is offering a special introductory offer for Autosoft customers, so that they can try the solution free for a limited trial period.

Jeff Sprague, Executive Vice President of Carfolks and a former dealer principal of Chrysler, Nissan and GM franchises in New England, said, The good news is that while most folks in the auto industry do a great job of working with their customers, auto shoppers commonly focus on the negative comments. We make it simple for happy customers to share their experience in about 30 seconds, and these validated reviews are posted instantly on the Carfolks.com website to enhance transparency.

We understand that having the control to make the choices that best fit the needs of their dealership is important to our customers, continued Christopher Morris. We developed our FLEX Connect program on that foundation, and with the flexibility to select cost-effective, secure integrations from a broad menu of market-leading providers, such as Carfolks.

Dallas Vacancy Rate Among Lowest in Nation As Home Building Sits at Highest Since 2007

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 09, 2014

Dallas area real estate has been in high-demand for the past year, and according to the National Association of Home Builders, the city is among the tightest inventories in the U.S. The association reports the vacancy rate in Dallas is just 1.3 percent, making it the fifth tightest major market in the nation.

Prudential Texas Properties reports that the area has a current homeownership of just over 58 percent, and more than 27 percent of homes have been built in the past 14 years. And in the first quarter of the year, North Texas home starts jumped nearly 60 percent as builders worked on roughly 7,300 single-family homes during that time, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Vacant properties are virtually non-existent in Dallas, DD Flynn, VP of Marketing at Prudential Texas Properties says. Everywhere you look new businesses, retail, shopping and restaurants are popping up throughout the Dallas region, and home buyers from throughout the state and country are noticing. Its exciting to be a part of the growth of this great region.

According to Altos Research, a California-based real estate analytics company, there are about 1,947 available properties in Dallas as of March 28. After coming off the heels of a major decline in inventory, Dallas homes for sale have seen a stagnant month of March in terms of supply.

As the busy spring and summer season gets underway, home buyers in Dallas are hopeful that home sellers will gain confidence in their ability to sell. After all, demand shows that the market is in sellers court in Dallas.

Altos Market Action Index measures conditions of a market to determine whether they favor buyers or sellers with a neutral value of 30. As of the end of March, the index was marked at 37.08, putting the favor with sellers. However, with an index still within the 30s, buyers should be confident entering the market.
