Charter Software added to Polaris list of Pre-Approved Dealer Management Systems

Littleton, CO – July 22, 2016

Last week Polaris announced the addition of Charter Software’s ASPEN product to their list of approved DMS systems. Charter was approved based on their proven track record and powersports industry experience, software functionality, service capability, and pricing/subscription model. The approval comes more than six months ahead of the minimum dealer standards policy compliance deadline of December 31, 2016.

The latest version of ASPEN, which already supports parts ordering transactions, now also supports parts locator transactions and automated validation for each Polaris dealer.

“We are very excited to be on Polaris’ approved DMS list. Our approval is timely as it allows our ASPEN customers to maintain appropriate status with Polaris.” Charter Software CEO Anne Salemo said. “We have a large number of dealerships who carry Ag, Construction and powersports equipment lines so this is a great fit for us and builds upon our strong relationships with OEMs. Working with Polaris as an approved DMS allows us to continue to build tools that connect dealers using ASPEN to Polaris thereby minimizing duplication of effort on the part of the dealer as well as the OEM. It is a win-win all around!”

About ASPEN: ASPEN was developed using Microsoft .NET and SQL Server to offer dealers strong security, a reliable, manageable IT infrastructure, and easy integration with Microsoft applications.
