CDK Global announced Thursday the release of its new cloud-based DMS — CDK Drive Flex DMSaaS.
Along with user-friendly features, Drive Flex includes a pricing model that adapts to the unique business needs of dealers operating one or two locations.
“CDK Drive Flex is an innovative web-based DMS perfect for dealers with just one or two locations,” CDK Global chief executive officer Brian MacDonald said in a news release. “The system introduces a groundbreaking commercial model that adapts to the individual dealer’s business activity. We’ve been developing this solution for some time and know it will help smaller dealers who really need this kind of solution for managing their businesses,” MacDonald explained.
Rather than having a fixed monthly amount due regardless of business activity, Drive Flex pricing adjusts with each dealer’s business volumes for enhanced cash flow and margin control.
“Using three common metrics—sales, system users and repair orders—pricing adjusts to volumes with a clear line of sight for business planning and growth,” CDK Global said.
Additionally, Drive Flex customers can access the core insights they need from virtually any browser or internet-connected device.
The DMS provides real-time business insights based on operational management reporting that leverages CDK Executive Eye technology.
In addition to having a simplified, modern user interface, Drive Flex’s 256-bit encryption technology increases data protection and is available on Amazon Web Services.
For a Drive Flex demonstration, dealers can visit booth 2216 at the NADA Show in Las Vegas from March 22 to 25.
