Chrome Systems Corp., a provider of automotive data, configuration technology and software solutions, announced it has developed and delivered an electronic data standard to General Motors (GM) Fleet and Commercial Operations for use by its customers.

The XML-based AutoTransmission is built on Chrome's data engine and consists of all GM vehicle data and option order rules for management and distribution of GM vehicle ordering information. This standard eliminates the need for manual data entry and cumbersome printed specification books, GM said.

. "We understand the instrumental benefits that data standards and solutions bring to every automotive transaction in the retail channel as well as the fleet industry," said Bob Navarre, Chrome CEO. "We're pleased to work with GM again and partner with GM Fleet and Commercial Operations to provide such a beneficial initiative to the fleet industry."

The new process speeds up purchasing and allows GM Fleet and Commercial Operations to fulfill orders faster by providing an open standard for communicating, sharing and using the data, Chrome said. As a result, fleet managers automatically receive current, accurate and orderable GM vehicle option and pricing information, allowing them to quickly copy the data into their ordering systems.
