CDK Global Partner Program Further Expands Dealer Choices with 350 Partners

More Solutions Added that Enable End-to-End Commerce for Dealers

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 20, 2017-- CDK Global (NASDAQ: CDK) announced today that the CDK Partner Program has grown to more than 350 partners and 450 unique applications. As the largest marketplace for automotive dealer software and solutions, the CDK Partner Program is enabling end-to-end automotive commerce to dealers by increasing the levels of data and workflow integration between CDK products and partner applications.

“The continued expansion of the CDK Partner Program plays a critical role in our ability to enable end-to-end automotive commerce for our customers,” said Howard Gardner, vice president and general manager, CDK Data Services. “We want to provide dealers with more choices and ultimately help them deliver a better customer experience through increased integration with CDK systems and partner applications. We look forward to further broadening the range of solutions available to support dealer operations and the marketing of dealership inventory and services.”

While the program continues to grow, CDK also continues to invest in tools such as Dealer Data Exchange (DDX), which provides dealers with greater visibility to their data integrations.
