This was a big year for us at AST.
We're working more closely than ever with our parent company, ApogeeINVENT, to improve our software and polish up our brand.
We launched our brand new website based on the modern, mobile framework you can find in our flagship product, AutoSTRADA.
At the beginning of 2019, we retired the AutoBAHN platform many of you are familiar with, and launched the completely new AutoSTRADA platform. With the launch of AutoSTRADA, we've been very busy changing our clients from the old platform to the brand new platform that has many benefits for today's mobile web, including optimal loading speeds, mobile-friendly images, and the best responsiveness of any framework.
In the midst of all these exciting changes, the team has still attended many auto dealership events around the United States to meet with current clients, State and National partner organizations, and introduce new dealerships to our award-winning software.
We are very proud of our continued work on the NIADA and NIADA.TV websites, as well as many state independent auto organizations around the nation. They offer so many valuable services to auto dealerships, and we are proud to be a corporate partner and software provider.
On a personal note, I'm very excited to be managing the blog here at AST, and working with Chris Jackson to continue improving the mobile experience across all our brands.
