Likelihood to Recommend

CDK Drive

The only situation within the automotive field in which I would not recommend using this product is if your employees are already comfortable with another, similarly priced DMS, such as DealerTrack or AutoMate. In that type of situation, the positive impact of the DMS would likely be outweighed by the cost and effort of retraining an entire staff to use it.

Pros

CDK Drive

  • Cloud-based, uses far less resources to run on each individual computer, minimizing the costs of upgrading hardware for every employee.
  • The fact that it is able to be used remotely adds a great deal of functionality, as there are times when usage outside of normal business hours is needed in my position.

Cons

CDK Drive

  • Possibly because of the web-based nature, there are times when it can be slightly slow and laggy.
  • Some functions are less intuitive to use than Reynolds and Reynolds but that is more of a personal preference.

Great job by everyone from the initial sales staff to the implementation team to the support staff. Always ready, willing and able to help out with any questions or issues that arise, even those from people who are simply not computer savvy and have had a hard time transitioning to a new product for everyday use.

Alternatives Considered

CDK Drive

CDK presents a much stronger, full integration of needed services than I found with AutoMate in particular, slightly better than Dealertrack, without the enormous additional cost incurred by using ERA-IGNITE. I have used nearly every DMS on the market and while I am still most comfortable with Reynolds, the thousands of dollars per month extra simply can no longer be justified for a product that lags behind in areas like reporting and cashiering functionality.

Return on Investment

CDK Drive

  • It has had an enormous impact on lowering our fixed expenses, as everything is less expensive, down to the paper that is used.
  • Data processing costs are down as well due to the fact that multiple facets of the program combine needed processes into one.
