ShipYourCarNow made another move on Friday in an effort to deliver vehicles to dealerships as quickly as possible.
The transportation, technology and service provider announced it has become a participant in the CDK Global Partner Program, one of the largest third-party marketplaces of automotive applications and integrations.
As a member of the CDK Partner Program, ShipYourCarNow said it now can provide dealers and OEMs with an application that can help them “drive their business forward.” With access to the extensive CDK customer base, partners have the opportunity to build solutions impacting nearly every area of business within the modern dealership, ranging from sales to service to data intelligence.
“Joining the CDK Partner Program provides us with the opportunity to offer a large dealer base with an online shipping functionality for their growing virtual customer population,” ShipYourCarNow chief executive officer and founder Gavin Kesten said in a news release.
The ShipYourCarNow solution can provide dealers with what the provider contends is a simple way to show their customers the cost to ship a vehicle and to execute the shipping transaction within the dealer’s website.
The solution is geared to keep customers on the dealer’s website to arrange shipping, which can help prevent dealers from potentially losing a sale. It also can capture the customer information and sends it directly back to the dealer as a sales lead.
“The CDK Partner Program is a powerful network that serves both dealers and their customers,” said Howard Gardner, vice president of data services at CDK. “We are thrilled ShipYourCarNow has joined our more than 500 partner organizations that provide innovative dealer solutions fully integrated with CDK.”
