The integrated and customer-focused DMS is designed to improve dealer
efficiency while producing a better customer experience
CDK Global’s Autoline Drive system will help improve productivity and

HUNGERFORD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 29, 2017--
CDK Global and PSA Benelux have signed a new partnership agreement that
offers the region’s Peugeot and Citroën dealers access to CDK Global’s
new integrated Dealer Management System – Autoline Drive.
The move by PSA to enhance DMS provision across its network is part of
the ‘ic@n framework’ – PSA’s streamlining of its dealer management
systems – to deliver greater efficiency and consistency across its
retail network. Peugeot and Citroën dealers in the Netherlands, Belgium
and Luxembourg will be the first outside France that can opt for the new
Dieter Bodvin, General Manager, CDK Global Benelux, said: “We are proud
to begin an exciting new chapter that builds on our long-standing
relationship with PSA Benelux. Peugeot and Citroën retailers moving to
our new Autoline Drive DMS will benefit from a sophisticated, simple,
and user-friendly system that will improve productivity and the
visibility of operations throughout each business.”
The new system is licenced to retailers via a ‘Software as a Service’
(SaaS) model. This enables retailers to manage costs effectively, while
ensuring the DMS system is always fully up-to-date. By being hosted
centrally, retailers benefit from regular updates to the product to
ensure it keeps up with changing trends and can offer new functionality
as the market develops.
The PSA network in Benelux will also be at the forefront of
technological developments as Autoline Drive is designed to work across
desktop and mobile devices. Autoline Drive is a powerful management tool
built around a new accounting and financial suite that is totally
integrated and offers the dealers a 360-degree view of their businesses
in real time.
PSA selected CDK Global’s system as one of the three choices for
dealers, following the streamlining of software providers to enhance
usability and simplify operations for its retailer network. The first
dealers in Benelux will begin piloting the new Autoline Drive systems
CDK Global Benelux has worked with PSA in the Netherlands, Belgium and
Luxembourg for more than 25 years. The introduction of Autoline Drive
for PSA has no impact on the support of the current dealer management
systems (EVA or Autoline).
