    ADP Purchase of Dealer Solutions

    Word on the street is that ADP is buying Houston
    based Dealer Solutions. This is typical of ADP's
    inability to develop systems on their own. Dealer Soltuions
    software is very rudimentary and will be years before it's
    ready to compete with R&R and UCS. ADP can't build it
    themselves - so they buy what they need and try to fit it
    in. Unfortunately for ADP dealers, they will again
    have to suffer through an unscheduled hardware and
    software change to stay current with the ADP moving

    • i'll be buying VTPI monday..wowwwwwwwwwww.35??????? how high can vtpi go??? $3-4.........

    • Read todays news and buy VTPI before the close.
      You will get free shares of VTPI's spin off. VTPI
      just signed contract with AUD so they have a
      legitimate product that will earn major $$$ You have less
      than one hour to buy VTPI to get the free spin off

    • Here�s an excerpt from the Tech section of our
      newsletter that went out last night.

      �We saw some
      good moves in techland on Wed. and for the first part
      of today,
      which was encouraging. Unfortunately
      we don't expect much for Friday. Since
      we don't
      think there will be much strength, be careful here. If
      there are moves
      they will probably be in the
      smaller issues. SCAI is doing very well after their

      split announcement, BRCM, TGNT, and SYBS look
      attractive. GBLX got hit over their
      merger but should
      reverse again soon. HWP is one of the few "big guys" that
      really good.�

      For more information
      on what we�re keeping an eye on�

    • ADP acquires Dealer Solutions. Just as I predicted. Any questions??

    • although it's a nice thought to have the offer of
      cheap prices every now and then, it's an even better
      feeling to know that prices don't always go on a yoyo
      diet. at, there's always a consistency and
      that to me, sells! prices are always reasonable,
      products always great and customer service efficient!

    • Can you tell us the address of the site you referred to..

    • What you are saying is that the stock is moving
      based on some information that only insiders

      Seems to me that the insider knowledge isn't staying
      inside. Maybe the SEC should take a look at the ADP

      So what is it? Are you pretending to know
      something that the rest of us don't, or are you leaking the
      info somewhere else?

      Seems fairly simple to me,
      if the stock is moving based on something real, the
      inside info is out and the insiders should be
      questioned. If it's already out there, you may as well let
      the AUD long faithfull know what's up.

      us, we'll just sit there and watch

    • Per the following PR you can see that Bell &
      Howell, the premier APC vendor, is feed up with R&R and
      is forming a relationship with ADP. Now I wonder why
      they would do that if R&R is the vendor of the future?

      ADP and Bell & Howell To Provide Full

      WIRE)--Feb. 4, 1999--The Dealer Services Group of Automatic
      Data Processing, Inc. (NYSE: AUD - news) and Bell &
      Howell (NYSE: BHW - news) announced today that the
      companies will provide full integration between ADP� dealer
      management systems and Bell & Howell's ePAR electronic parts

      The companies will integrate Bell &
      Howell's ePAR systems with the Elite(TM) dealer management
      system on the Millennia3(TM) platform and the PC-based
      Alliance(TM) software.

      Both ADP's John Gray, Senior
      Vice President of Development and Technology for the
      Dealer Services Group, and Ted Fellowes, Bell & Howell's
      Senior Vice President of Publishing Services, agree the
      integration will substantially improve the dealers ability to
      retrieve parts information -- ultimately saving both time
      and money.

      ``We're pleased to work with Bell
      and Howell,'' Gray said. ``This parts catalog,
      tightly integrated with ADP's leading dealer management
      systems, will give our customers quick, one-step access to
      parts information.''

      asking for this type of seamless integration,''
      commented Ted Fellowes, Senior Vice president of Bell &
      Howell's Publishing Services business. ``We are delighted
      to work with ADP to be responsive to our market's
      needs with a solution.'' ``This comprehensive solution
      includes several ADP-designed data exchange enhancements
      specifically for the ePAR systems,'' said Gray. ``These
      improvements will ensure that users can access parts
      information quickly and easily from the ADP applications.''

      ``When this level of integration is complete, dealers
      will see an improved and more effective work flow
      rather than islands of automation,'' Fellowes said.

    • I checked a site that shows time & sale info
      yesterday. Everytime the price dropped, the volume spiked.
      That's a pattern for a large accumulation underway.
      Could be either a mutual fund or possibly a stock
      buyback by ADP.

    • Not one buyer in recent months. Only sellers. Makes me wonder if there is any real reason for the move. Any ideas ?
