Auto-IT Head Office MelbourneAuto-IT New Zealand has been operating from its Wellington office since 1996 – specialising in the development and provision of dealer management software systems for retail dealerships in the automotive, trucking, agriculture and construction equipment industries. Our key objective is to help our clients run their dealerships more effectively, efficiently and profitably.

Our clients range in size from six users to over 200, and we treat them all with the same care and respect. We see ourselves as your business partner, not just a software provider, and given the chance, we’d welcome the opportunity to form a partnership with you as well. When you do business with us as your local supplier, you get the additional resources of our international parent company in Australia.

Auto-IT is a profitable private company and one of the two largest dealer management system providers in Australasia, employing over 100 staff. The company was formed in 2000 as a result of a merger between two respected dealer management software system suppliers, KGM Management and Newmans Information Services – both veterans of the DMS industry for more than 35 years.

Our experienced staff have been hand-picked from the best available in the IT and retail dealership industries. Most have worked in dealerships in a variety of roles, as well as in IT, software development, finance and management positions.
Our clients’ success during the past 30 years has helped drive our own business growth. Thousands of users employ our software in locations as diverse as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, South Africa, Fiji and Mexico. 
With offices in Wellington, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Kuala Lumpur and channel partners in South Africa and Mexico, Auto-IT is in a strong position for continued growth throughout many parts of the world.
