autoVHC and CDK Global reach agreement
An agreement between autoVHC and CDK Global will enable dealerships to transfer data seamlessly between the two platforms.
autoVHC provides electronic vehicle health check solutions while CDK Global develops joined-up experiences with the CDK dealer management system (DMS).
By joining the CDK International Partner Programme, autoVHC will be able to offer dealerships a more unified and integrated approach to customer care and data analysis, and ensure that dealerships already deploying a CDK DMS can leverage their existing investment when integrating autoVHC's platform.
Any aftersales activity recorded in autoVHC will be automatically written to the Repair Order in the DMS, giving a single pane of glass view, whilst allowing dealers to call a central data store to ensure that customer information is kept up to date, ensuring the most informed service possible.
Chris Saunders, business unit director at autoVHC said, 'CDK has a brilliantly human-centred approach to the automotive sector; it understands that building sustainable relationships is the key to dealership profitability and sustainability. This fits in perfectly with our own ethos of empowering dealerships to offer highly tailored and efficient aftersales services, therefore extending their service portfolios and positioning themselves as competitively as possible. It made perfect sense to integrate our two platforms and pass on the streamlining and information-sharing benefits direct to dealerships.'
Jonathan Hales, UK partner manager, CDK Global said, 'We are delighted that autoVHC has joined our pioneering Partner Programme. Their electronic vehicle health check solution helps dealerships to deliver the highest quality aftersales service and by integrating with our DMS our dealership customers can optimise and drive greater financial efficiency in the vehicle inspection stage of the aftersales process.'
