ADP Third Party Access Program Adds Its 10,000th Connection Using Vendor Integration

Milestone Demonstrates Continued Growth of ADP's Third Party Access Program That Offers Open, Secure, Integrated Access to ADP Dealership Management System

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - ADP Dealer Services, a division of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADP), announced that its Third Party Access Program now delivers over 10,000 vendor connections, enabling vendors throughout the automotive retail segment direct, real-time access to the ADP Dealership Management System (DMS). This number represents thousands of ADP DMS dealers based in North America who have a third party vendor of their choice using ADP's interfaces.

ADP's Third Party Access Program provides open integration for third parties wanting to access the ADP DMSs of consenting dealers in order to provide various products and services to those dealers or to integrate those products and services to the ADP DMS. The growth of the program since its inception over ten years ago demonstrates ADP's ongoing commitment to an open system.

"ADP's continuing goal is to offer an open system, and we're excited to see our Third Party Access Program expand beyond this significant milestone," states Dan McCray, Vice President of Product Marketing for ADP Dealer Services.

ADP's Third Party Access program includes several options enabling vendors to choose the best level of integration for their needs and the needs of their dealership clients. The highest level of integration includes ADP-managed bi-directional interfaces with real time read/write access on a 24/7 basis.

"The bi-directional offering of the ADP Third Party Access program involves authenticating every vendor, every time they access a dealer's DMS data. With this process we can provide a system that is secure as well as open," adds McCray.
