  1. I have worked in the aftermarket for around 20 years using MAM. Always thought it was full of flaws with constant down time & crashes. Now, having moved to a main franchise dealer, I’m using Kerridge and must say it’s a FAR superior system. I hope positives will come from this buy out and MAM won’t drag Kerridge down. Let’s hope MAM will improve instead. Fingers crossed for everyone that’s still using MAM, you don’t know what you’re missing 😉
