About Auto-IT

Auto-IT Pty Ltd, with its head office in Australia, develops and markets retail dealer management systems, servicing the automotive, trucking, agriculture and construction equipment industries.

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 30 years. Auto-IT employs 80 staff and is one of the two largest dealer management system suppliers in Australasia.

Our experienced staff have been hand-picked from the best available in the Information Technology 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 to drive our own business growth. Thousands of users employ our software systems in locations as wide apart as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Fiji, South Africa, Thailand and Mexico.

In South Africa we have a strong team of committed individuals with real world dealership experience. Our staff have held Financial Controller, Service Manager and Parts Manager positions within large franchised dealerships, providing an unparalleled solution. This knowledge and insight allows the team to clearly understand the financial reporting and other key requirements of a dealership.
