CDK Global on Monday announced it now offers a marketplace of 300 partner application providers as part of its rapidly expanding CDK Global Partner Program.
CDK says its Partner Program provides data and workflow integration to a wide range of approved partners, third parties, OEMs and automotive dealers. CDK reached this milestone with the recent addition of 42 new partners and 55 new applications, the company says.
“As the CDK Partner Program continues to grow, the end result is more choices for our customers,” says Howard Gardner, vice president and general manager for CDK Data Services. “Our focus is on building a secure and reliable way for dealerships to use applications that help run their business.”
With the growth of the program, CDK says it continues to expand the breadth of software applications that are available to automotive dealers across a number of business areas. CDK has increased the number of applications available for dealers in the areas of customer management, deal management, parts, service, and dealership analytics/reporting.
Additionally, the program’s newest area, application integration for dealers using CDK Websites, has added 11 new digital partners with solutions ranging from vehicle valuation to chat/messaging to online vehicle reviews, the company says.
