autoVHC has announced it has joined the CDK International Partner Programme, allowing the aftersales platform to be fully-integrated into the popular car dealer management system.
The CDK Partner Programme offers potential automotive tech partners access to CDK’s Autoline DMS by using standardised integration points.
autoVHC said that integration of its platforms into Autoline allows data insights and intelligence to be shared automatically, reducing the need to manually input the data in two separate systems.
It creates the ability to price up jobs, transfer a job to a job card once authorisation has been obtained, and check part availability.
Paul Muers, business unit director at autoVHC, said: “We are thrilled to join other technology providers that deliver innovative dealer solutions, fully integrated with CDK’s DMS, as part of the CDK International Partner Programme.
“This partnership will allow us to provide a more efficient and streamlined process for our customers, as well as contribute to the long-term goal of building a connected future for automotive retail.”
Dilwar Hussain, business development manager at CDK Global, said: “We have been working closely with autoVHC and our mutual customer at Greenhous to pilot the integration into Autoline.
“We’ve seen that the two systems complement workshop processes and will enable technicians to be more efficient on each job and provide a much better experience to their customers.”
