Learn why CDK clients are switching to

DealerBuilt's ceDMS Platform

At DealerBuilt, our mission is to empower each client to realize their unique vision for their dealership. We accomplish this through our personal, dealer-centric approach to doing business and LightYearTM, our highly-customizeable, enterprise-class ceDMS (customer experience DMS) platform.

With no third-party integration fees, our simple Windows-based navigation, a wide range of customer experience tools built right into our platform, and flexible reporting, it’s easy to understand why CDK clients are switching to DealerBuilt – learn more below.

Top Reasons Why Dealers are Switching from CDK to DealerBuilt
1. No Third-Party Integration Fees & Freedom to Use Best-in-Class Dealer TechBoth you and your third-party vendors pay hefty ongoing fees to exchange your own data with your other software, and pricing and policies that favor other CDK products discourage use of better third-party solutionsDealerBuilt doesn’t charge third-party integration fees and you always own and control your own data – our lack of fees and flexible integration platform eliminate barriers to leveraging your other preferred best-in-class technologies.
2. More Efficiently Learn & Navigate the SystemMore siloed navigation and data access translates into extra clicks and rekeying of data in order to view information across departments, making everyday tasks less efficient, details harder to find, and the system more challenging for new staff to learn.Unmatched ability to quickly drill into details and navigate effortlessly between sales, service, and accounting information saves time, plus Windows-based navigation comes naturally to users, even new employees.
3. Built-in Customer Experience ToolsCreating a modern, mobile-enabled customer experience requires investing in other CDK or third-party tools, adding cost and, in some cases, resulting in a less-than-seamless experience for customers and employees.Core solution includes a range of customer experience tools – online appointment scheduling, mobile check-in and payment, video and photo-enabled MPIs, and more – eliminating the cost of licensing separately.
4. Flexible Reporting That Delivers the Insight You NeedYou can’t always access the fields you need or combine them the way you want to create custom reports, making it difficult to get answers out of your data.Flexibility to use and connect any data points in the system to customize and build sophisticated real-time reports, ensuring you have the insight you need.
5. True Partnership with Dealer ClientsIt’s easy to feel like “just a number” or that you don’t have a voice, and offshore support often lacks product and industry knowledge that makes it frustrating and hard to get help and quickly resolve issues.With dedicated account managers, an accessible executive team, friendly US-based support, and a long history of close collaboration with dealer clients, DealerBuilt is known for our personal, dealer-centric approach to doing business.

We moved to DealerBuilt after 35 years with a major DMS. DealerBuilt’s flexibility, value, open integration with other systems, and centralized accounting function were key reasons for our change.
