Automotive Computer Systems (ACS) has been producing software for the New Zealand motor trade for over 30 years.
Originally developed for the Colonial Motor Group of companies the Magix+ Dealer Management System (DMS) reputation soon spread and it became the DMS of choice for many other companies in the automotive industry including distributors, large multi franchise, multi location sites, as well as farm machinery, truck, boat and motorcycle dealerships.
According to Steve Grant, Director of Magix+, motor traders have complexities not found with most retail outlets where trading largely consists of bringing in stock and selling it. “Generic business programmes wouldn’t do a quarter of what motor traders require” says Steve.
“Dealers bring in and sell vehicles or course, but there are many other facets to their business and each of these requires a specific management system that runs separately, yet are integrated".
"Dealerships build an ongoing relationship with their customer that is beyond many other business models and our job is to ensure that their Magix DMS helps with every step of the process."
The Magix management team five have 120 years experience in the industry between them. Having a tight, highly experienced workforce enables Magix to respond quickly to your business needs.
Magix is used by more Kiwi car and truck and motorcycle dealers than any other DMS. It is our history and NZ focus that keeps us on top. The Magix team are not reliant on overseas markets to provide support or guidance. Our product development comes from our desire for continuous improvement and client feedback. And our local, knowledgeable team focus only on local customer requirements, making our DMS the right choice for your business.
“Fantastic, system, easy to use and navigate through. ACS has been great with their innovations and ability to meet our requirements with changes to improve our business.”
“Not only is the Magix software easy to understand and operate, my staff have found it particularly easy to "stretch their knowledge" and get extended benefits from the system by way of reports and quicker processes. The process that links the vehicle database to websites for advertising is so quick and simple it ensures our current stock is always available on our website and others such as TradeMe and Autobase. It also saves us from needing an advertising or web specialist to get our stock advertised online, as once the details are in the system, at the press of a button those details are loaded online. The Magix support staff are also very proactive in providing some very useful business tips to "top up" our income and monitor individual parts of our business. The system makes it particularly easy to track staff time allocation and manage under utilised time, and the up-to-date, easy to access daily reports summarise info in a handy, useful referral tool. We are happy, our accountants are happy and most importantly the IRD are happy.”
“Using Magix has significantly improved the quality of my prospecting and increased sales conversion. This is due to having instant access to clear and simple contact history.”
“Easy to use, with the ability to detail a very comprehensive data base. Booking vehicle much easier and more accurate as able to check history just before booking. Closing invoices just got so much better with new update. Have found ACS have always listened to their customer’s wants and needs and done their very best to provide the specific services that the customer needs. Cheers ACS!!!”
“Having never used a similar package prior to my current employment, I found that Magix Plus was a simple, logical system to utilise . I was able to do this without formal training and as it is very user friendly I was able to self educate myself on the basics.”
“The best and most flexible DMS I have ever worked with! Magix Plus is an easy to use tool it delivers customer satisfaction in buckets and keeps the bottom line fat with no compromises.”
“Having worked with the Magix system on a daily basis for the last 11 years, I have found Magix to be a constantly evolving tool that as each upgrade has been rolled out has made operating the system more user friendly & a lot quicker.”
“Gluyas Motor Group has been on Magix since 1993 and I am as impressed by the system today as i was in 1993. In that time our server has gone down twice and both times we were operational within half a day. Their back up is impressive, the system is user friendly and comprehensive, and it is the best value for money dealership system on the market by far.”
“I was newly employed in the motor trade industry when our company had the Magix system installed and was struggling to comprehend much in the old software system. Magix certainly made all the processes very simple and I was quickly able to understand and then help other team members to get the most out of benefits this system has to offer. I am impressed by quick responses to requests for reports modifications or upgrades and suggestions.”
“Magixplus has the ongoing effect that, I look forward to using the prospecting system each day now.”

All of our departments rely on Magix daily and I never hear of any issues from any of the staff. The quoting system in sales and service is an example of its true excellence!! So well done to all at ACS.”
“After using other systems in place amongst other dealerships, I have found Magix an easy to use yet comprehensive program for the day to day running of an Auto Parts Inventory. The Parts Department no longer is ‘the poor cousin’ when it comes to the dealership administration software anymore!”
“Magix allows me to keep track of my customers and enables me to manage all aspects of my deals from initial contact to delivery. It is an invaluable tool for any car dealer.”
"Fast and simple to use with the ability to easily track a parts movement from purchase to sale."
