Dealix to Power New Car Leads for NADAguides

Car Buyers Will Get Quick Access to Quotes From Qualified Dealers; Dealers Will Have the Opportunity to Connect With More In-Market Buyers

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2011) - The Dealer Services Group of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADP) today announced that its Dealix business unit has been chosen by NADAguides to be the exclusive provider of the new car quote and dealer selector platform for its site, NADAguides.com, effective immediately. NADAguides, which offers in-depth consumer vehicle data and research tools in addition to the most market-reflective pricing available on the Internet, has over 2.2 million unique visitors shopping on its site each month, according to April 2011 ComScore Media Metrix data.

Car shoppers on NADAguides.com can research and compare vehicles, read reviews, and get information on vehicle incentives. Under the new relationship with Dealix, shoppers who are ready to engage with a dealer will be presented with a "consumer select" screen that will show them participating dealers and the dealers' distance from the consumer. Shoppers can then choose which dealers they wish to correspond with about their purchase. Once a dealer has been selected, the Dealix platform delivers the request to the dealer within seconds. This will enable dealers to launch a fast response to consumers' inquiries and deliver a better overall car buying experience. NADAguides joins other leading automotive sites that have chosen Dealix to own their new car quote processes. Dealix also provides this functionality to Yahoo! Autos, MSN Autos, and AOL Autos. These sites, along with other distribution partners in the Dealix network, collectively reach over 30 million car shoppers per month, according to ComScore Media Metrix.

"We are pleased to be partnering with Dealix," said Lenny Sims, NADAguides' Vice President of Operations. "Auto shoppers want a choice of dealers with whom to interact in their markets, and Dealix can offer them the broadest set of dealer options. We are excited about the relationship."

"NADAguides is a leader in helping car shoppers make informed decisions. Coupled with Dealix's advanced technology and strong relationships with auto dealers, this partnership will create a great experience for the buyer, while speeding sales for U.S. auto dealers," states Egon Smola, Vice President of New and Used Car Leads Businesses at Dealix. "Our research and first-hand experience show that when you present qualified, local dealers to car buyers, and facilitate a quick connection between the two, the overall experience is better for the car buyer and helps the dealer to match them with their ideal car."

Dealix began powering NADAguides on June 8, 2011.
