DeskManager DMS Adds Support for Multiple Warranties

Los Angeles (PRWEB) October 17, 2013

Auto dealers can attach up to five service contracts to any deal with the help of a new feature in the latest version of DeskManager DMS, released Wednesday.

DeskManager 11.94.1 improves on prior versions of the software, which allowed only one service contract to be attached to each deal. It introduces an entirely new screen that lets users choose from service contracts pre-defined with the Setup tool, or create a new one from scratch and calculate its cost.

AutoManager CEO Kami Tafreshi called the new feature "a significant new revenue generator" for DeskManager dealers. "In an industry with ever-tightening margins, this opens the door for dealers to offer more than the competition and bolster revenue in the process," Tafreshi said.

While extended warranties are perhaps the first sales opportunity that may come to mind, Tafreshi noted that the new feature could also be used to add items such as roadside assistance, anti-theft plans, and support plans for aftermarket products to a deal.

DeskManager 11.94.1 will itemize these additions when printing retail installment contracts that provide space for multiple service contracts. Dealers are encouraged to contact their forms provider to verify whether it supports this feature.

For information about DeskManager 11.94.1 or to download the free demo, visit the AutoManager home page.

Hantro adds Coding Technologies aacPlus Audio Codec to Their Portfolio of Mobile Multimedia Technologies

3G Congress, Hong Kong (PRWEB) November 18, 2005

Hantro and Coding Technologies announced today that they have signed an agreement under which Hantro will incorporate the performance optimised aacPlus codec into their mobile multimedia product offering. With quality comparable to MP3 at only a quarter of the bitrate, aacPlus audio is an ideal companion to H.264 / AVC or VC-1 video for delivering an incredible multimedia experience on wireless handsets.

aacPlus is AAC coupled with Coding Technologies' patented Spectral Band Replication (SBR) and Parametric Stereo technologies. SBR and Parametric Stereo are groundbreaking audio compression techniques that dramatically reduce the size (bit rate) of digital audio files while maintaining the same audio quality. In third-party listening tests, consumers found comparable quality between music files encoded at 128 Kbps in MP3 versus those encoded at 32 Kbps with aacPlus. This level of efficiency fundamentally changes the economics of digital music delivery and enables new applications in mobile and digital broadcasting. Coding Technologies' aacPlus has been adopted in standards from 3GPP, DVB, DVD Forum, MPEG, and others and is quickly becoming the defacto-standard for mobile handsets worldwide.

Coding Technologies is a natural choice for Hantro to partner with.

Services combining audio and video are in the focus of network operators, manufacturers and users alike, and this deal is offering a best-in-class combination ensuring optimum user experience.
