This next evolution DMS is designed to enable dealers to meet the needs of an increasingly competitive market in a world where more and more business is transacted online.

Andrew Dean, President of CDK Global International, explains, “Autoline Drive is a significant leap forward in the DMS market. The way consumers wish to engage with a dealership when researching, purchasing a vehicle or booking a service is changing, with footfall reducing year on year”.
