“Last year, we unveiled a vision for a platform that could overcome the
historic inefficiencies of the automotive industry, allowing developers
and consumers of solutions to seamlessly create and implement products
that improve business processes,” said
Elimination of Fees Spurs Innovation
Fortellis is designed to bring new ideas to the forefront of the automotive industry. To help facilitate this innovation, users will not be charged developing and publishing fees. There are no fees to join, to publish APIs, gain access to basic reporting and support, or to market solutions to end users. There will be a nominal transaction fee to handle traffic going across the platform. More than 120 organizations have become active users of the platform, creating a thriving community that has contributed 90 registered solutions and 70 active sales opportunities, as well as an increasing number of APIs being published.

these solutions to work across providers has made adoption challenging,”
Fortellis Marketplace Now Live
Fortellis Marketplace, a central hub where retail technology providers can sell their software applications, and dealers and OEMs can find and purchase desired solutions, went live at NADA 2019, seamlessly uniting the producers and consumers of automotive technology.
Marketplace will serve as a one-stop shop for the industry to see available solutions. Like “app” stores in other industries, it will provide the ability for developers to market their solutions by providing feature and functionality descriptions, photos, videos, pricing, support options and screenshots. The site will also provide a way for end users to provide ratings, reviews and ask questions about the solution – together providing a powerful tool for choosing the right solution. When solutions are chosen that are fully integrated through Fortellis, platform deployment will be automated.
"We are very excited about the Fortellis mission to create a seamless
marketplace for Dealers,” said
