Now Where Did I Put My Benz?

Mercedes Benz dealership RBM of Atlanta is implementing an RFID-based real-time locating system at its newest location, opening this fall. The system, provided by MyDealerLot, is designed to help the dealership slash the time required to manage its inventory of at least 600 cars, while enabling sales associates to quickly find specific vehicles.
"For management, MyDealerLot is a great inventory-tracking tool," says Randy Powell, RBM's general manager. The MyDealerLot system, being installed now at the new location (RBM of Atlanta--North), will be integrated with RBM's data management server, from ADP, and a key-management system for storing and controlling car keys, created by KEYper Systems. Powell says the dealership is adding the system "so we can track a vehicle from the time it is released to us by the vehicle manufacturer, its location on our lot, how often it has moved--and, with the integrated key control, who moved it--and, very importantly, if it is not on our lot."
