Indianapolis, IN – Autobase, the premier provider of CRM solutions for auto dealers nationwide, and a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions, today announced that sister companies, AVV (www.avv.com) and @utoRevenue (www.autorevenue.com), will unite with Autobase (www.autobase.net), forming the automotive industry’s largest and most experienced provider of CRM solutions for auto dealers.
Dominion’s CRM business unification is part of its strategy to serve today’s auto dealer by providing the most comprehensive integrated solutions to manage a dealership’s CRM, websites, and inventory.
