To celebrate the launch of our UK Partner Programme, we hit the road between 29th April and 10th May 2019. We visited all of our new partners to welcome them on-board, sharing coffee, muffins and ideas to support how we can achieve collective goals this year.
The two week roadshow has been a great opportunity to discuss the programme face-to-face and meet everyone involved in making our collaboration successful.
Thank you to all our partners who welcomed us on the roadshow. We appreciate your hospitality and look forward to our continued work together.
During the roadshow, we visited the partners listed below to find out more about the exciting integrations they are developing to work with our Dealer Management Systems. Our partners will play a vital role in our mission to connect the automotive retail industry and create seamless car buying and ownership experiences.
The CDK International Partner Programme was launched with the aim of developing an open platform using standard integration points that any partners could use to access the core DMS platforms.
The CDKI Partner Programme offers many benefits, including the opportunity to enhance their product for existing customers by connecting it to the data in the DMS. It will also help partners to connect with new customers that already use a CDK DMS.
The CDK Partner Programme team will continue to work closely with existing partners to build connections and develop APIs, and recruit new partners.
Better customer experiences start with better connections. The CDK Partner Programme aims to fill the gaps and connect the suppliers and systems you use to create your seamless automotive consumer journey.

Where we went
CDK embarked on a journey to visit its inaugural Partners to discuss the experience of being part of the recently launched CDK International Partner Programme (CDKI Partner Programme).
The roadshow, which included an entourage of hospitality and refreshment vans serving muffins and coffee, was a chance to celebrate relationships built and discuss new possibilities for the future.
The CDK Partner Programme Roadshow was hosted by Alistair Jeff, Head of Partner Programme and Jonathan Hales, UK Partner Manager, from CDK’s UK head office
Jonathan Hales, UK Partner Manager, CDK Global explains: “Our mantra at CDK is ‘where connections begin’ and I cannot think of better way to stay connected to our Partners, and industry friends, by visiting them on their home turf."
We’re looking to understand more about the solutions they are developing more for our dealers and their experience of the CDK Partner Programme so far. We want to showcase the great products that our partners have to offer and how connecting these to the DMS will improve car buying and ownership experiences.
