BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Oxlo Systems Inc., the owner and operator of ODIN(TM), the Open Dealer Integration Network for the automotive industry, announces the release of a new auto dealer software application for Ford dealers. The solution includes a web based application with integrated Ford dealer communications that were previously only available over the legacy Ford VPN batch communications system.
The project, a collaboration between Ford IT and Oxlo Systems, expands the reach of the legacy VPN replacement initiative to include Ford auto dealers that do not use an integrated Dealer Management System.
To receive Ford factory communications, Ford auto dealers login directly to ODIN™ for Auto Dealers, a secure online web app connected to the Oxlo Open Dealer Integration Network. Dealerships will be able to obtain daily files and reports using a browser rather than pulling them from the proprietary Ford batch management application that was connected to the legacy VPN.
"The release of ODIN™ for Auto Dealers is yet another instance where Ford IT and Oxlo have collaborated to rapidly bring new automotive solutions to market that deliver significant IT savings for the Dealer channel," said Gene Brothers, CEO of Oxlo Systems. "With a single extension point to the Oxlo Open Dealer Integration Network, we have enabled a legacy VPN continuity solution for another segment of the Ford Dealer channel."
In 2013, a focused Ford-Oxlo IT initiative migrated a large segment of the Ford Auto Dealer base that use a traditional DMS off of the legacy Ford VPN technology resulting in a large savings in dollars and a simplified dealer connectivity solution for Ford IT.
