RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TradeMotion LLC and PartProtection, LLC today announced the certified integration of its Parts eStore and PartProtection Parts & Service Point-of-Sale service contract portal with Dealertrack Technologies' Dealer Management System (DMS).
The integration, approved via Dealertrack's Opentrack Certification program, allows a dealership using Dealertrack's DMS to create, price and sell both Part Only and Parts & Labor extended coverage plans on Retail and Wholesale Parts sales, as well as on repairs being performed in the dealership's own Service Department. The integration ensures a quick and secure exchange of data between the Dealertrack system and both PartProtection and TradeMotion's eStore offerings.
"Completing these interfaces with Dealertrack is an example of TradeMotion's commitment to providing industry leading products that are compatible with the dealership's existing systems and processes," said Shawn Lucas, Founder and President of TradeMotion. "Dealertrack dealers that want to take advantage of TradeMotion's Parts eStore and PartProtection products can now do so with confidence that we can meet their technology needs."
"This integration gives service writers and parts countermen the ability to easily create and sell PartProtection's extended service contracts on both individual parts sales and service jobs at the point of sale," says Chris Rand, President of PartProtection. "This unique approach allows dealers to increase customer retention and margin on existing sales, and increase parts sales to Wholesale accounts by outcompeting the Aftermarket, all while simply using the information that already resides within their DMS. Parts and Service associates are busy, and this integration makes it easy for them to add a quick step to their normal processes that benefits everyone."
Dealertrack's DMS Opentrack Certification Program allows dealers to securely integrate their Dealertrack DMS with certified third-party software," said Sharon Kitzman, DMS Vice President and General Manager. "In addition to the PartProtection Parts & Service Point-of-Sale portal, there are over 80 certified Opentrack partners."
