Procede Software Tuesday announced the general release of the latest version of Excede v10.4.
Procede says the new release was developed in close collaboration with daily Excede users and subject matter experts who participate in the Procede Insider Program, the cornerstone of its user-centered design strategy. Excede v10.4 incorporates enhancements and new features designed to make every department in a dealership more intuitive, intelligent, and productive.
The release reflects the company's ongoing commitment to listening to its customers and delivering on its promises in ways that have a meaningful impact on their dealership businesses, Procede says.
"At Procede, we are committed to listening to our customers and advancing our products and solutions in ways that have a tangible impact on our customers' businesses. To live up to that commitment, we invest every penny we earn back into our business," says Eric Fortin, senior vice president of Product. "By making those investments and harnessing the collective experience of the people who use Excede every day, we are proud to deliver our most significant release yet."
The Procede Insider Program is a cornerstone of the company's user-centered design strategy. Procede says it is one of several formal and informal, foundational practices Procede has put in place to ensure it is listening to its customers and continuously delivering platform advancements in the areas of greatest impact. Dealerships that participate in the program contribute to the development of the Excede product roadmap and provide input and feedback on new products, features, and enhancements. The Insider Program played a pivotal role in the development of Excede v10.4, with dealerships of all sizes representing every major OEM participating in alpha and beta trials, the company says.
Eric Liddell, vice president of Product Architecture, says "By working closely with Procede Insiders we were able to incorporate their combined expertise into this latest version of Excede and prioritize the enhancements that will drive their businesses and the industry forward." Liddell continued, "The feedback from dealerships that participated in the trials has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to get it into the hands of every one of our customers."
Procede adds Excede v10.4 features functionality advancements across every dealership department, including parts enhancements that streamline inventory management; service enhancements that increase efficiency and customer uptime; and accounting enhancements that automate repetitive tasks, saving time and increasing accuracy. Global changes include streamlined administration, enhanced user and access management, and increased security protocols, the company notes.
