Overall Satisfaction with CDK Drive

Currently, I use it to support marketing goals. If may need to find customers due respond to reviews or help with public reputation. I also use customer lists from CDK Drive (export) to then upload for marketing emails. CDK Drive allows us to pull customers who had certain opcodes. For example, yellow/red tire opcodes for a tire rebate marketing email. Prior to marketing initiatives, I used CDK Drive every day as an appt coordinator. Set up appts, made preorders, opened tickets to order parts, and then took payments and checked out customers.
  • CDK Drive is great at integrating with other software programs or finding a solution to connect/gather information.
  • CDK Drive allows you to pull all kinds of information, lists for use outside of CDK (like pulling customer lists for marketing emails).
  • CDK Drive continually updates its systems and processes to keep up with modern technology (for example, implementing iPads/digital processes even for technicians).
  • Sometimes searching for customers is hard because it seems to just pull so many options (ex: even if a portion in a name matched).
  • Creating repair orders for customer service repairs.
  • Connecting service advisors, parts department, and auto technicians using one system.
  • Keeping records of all transactions, both past and current estimates.
  • Positive, in that CDK Drive is helping us accomplish objectives that our auto group is presenting for our dealerships to improve/work on as a service dept.
  • Positive in that it keeps up with modern technology and customer expectations in these times with new offerings in communication, recordings, etc.
  • Positive in that it has a response to each requirement that the auto manufacturer comes to us with. OEM starts requiring a new process/offer, and CDK has a way for us to fulfill that.

CDK Drive is great at connecting all the team members in service/parts. We used to have a foreman who had to dispatch work to each technician, which is now done through CDK Drive. Technicians can get help with part requirements/needs through CDK. Before, each technician had to go back to the parts department and wait. CDK Drive is good at offering an option to record and send a video of what was found on a service diagnosis, this helps with transparency and trust.
