Annual data from autoVHC has revealed that the UK franchised dealership sector missed out on as much as £401.8 million in 2018, having managed to sell only 53% of Red work.
Red work is identified as faults that if not addressed pose a serious safety risk and in many cases will mean the owner will be breaking the law if they continue to drive the vehicle.
We are pleased to be able to announce that we have reached an agreement with CDK Global to build joined-up experiences between autoVHC and the CDK dealer management system (DMS). This will create an end-to-end solution which enables automotive dealerships to seamlessly transfer data pertaining to jobs, parts, stocks, prices and more between the two platforms.
