Accu-Trade today announced that it has become a participant in the CDK Global Partner Program. As a member of the largest third-party partner program in the industry, Accu-Trade is now part of a marketplace of applications and integration choices developed to help automotive dealers succeed.
“As a company, we are always looking for ways to help dealers engage their customers early in the buying process,” said Robert M. Hollenshead, the founder of Accu-Trade. “It’s all about our dealers getting great trade-in leads that they can easily and cheaply convert into concrete sales.”
Accu-Trade applies the principles of VIN-specific vehicle pricing to many different marketplaces, including wholesale, retail, auction and diminished value. Accu-Trade’s lead generation tool, Instant Offer, integrates seamlessly into any dealer’s website, and its Appraiser valuation tool lets those dealers appraise cars quickly and accurately. The core of the valuation program is the full market context provided by Accu-Trade’s partnership with Galves Market Data.
“We’re very pleased to introduce Accu-Trade as the newest member of the CDK Global Partner Program,” said Howard Gardner, vice president and general manager of CDK Data Services. “Accu-Trade is a welcome addition to our vibrant program that provides dealers with a range of partner choices and the assurance that their programs can be seamlessly integrated with our applications.”
The CDK Global Partner Program provides its partners with access to a diverse CDK ecosystem through the ability to integrate with a range of CDK applications, as well as with CDK dealer websites.
