History and Growth
Tom Waitzman, founder and president of DPS, started the company in 2009. A 14-year career in the aftermarket vehicle technology industry culminated in the opportunity to start a company purely focused on servicing automotive retailers. Building on a reputation of integrity and a dedication to customer satisfaction, DPS has evolved into the most sought-after aftermarket provider in the Chicago area. With 15 dedicated staff members, we have expanded our services to meet the changing needs of automotive retailers, coupling full-vehicle protection and style enhancement with turnkey audio, video, safety and security installation. Our 6,000 square foot facility and 8 Vehicle fleet allows DPS to consistently service more than 30 dealerships in and around Chicago.
Better Service Through Technology
In 2016 DPS launched AAC (Auto Accessory Configurator) a software sales program that considerably simplifies the sale of accessories for automotive retailers. AAC provides a straightforward way to offer the right products for a specific make, model and trim based on years of in depth vehicle and product research. AAC’s relentless approach to vehicle and product analysis streamlines the intricate and complex world of aftermarket accessory options and standard vehicle equipment. No other company can provide the level of application detail for a specific vehicle and product combination. Combining our rich data with a polished user interface, and the added ability to visualize products and process purchase orders, AAC is the most complete accessory software program available to automotive retailers.
The goal for AAC is to expand our footprint beyond our current customer base and help dealerships nationwide realize increased accessory sales, better customer rapport and improved CSI scores.
DPS strives to become an all-in-one aftermarket solution for dealerships and their customers. We will accomplish this goal through continued meticulous selection of high-value products, and an ongoing regimen to tailor services and expertise to fulfill dealership needs.
