Reynolds Announces CAR Research XRM as Newest Partner
in Third Party Access Program
Enabling safe, secure, and verified access to dealership data
DAYTON, OHIO - FEBRUARY 12, 2010 - The Reynolds and Reynolds Company, a leading provider of software and services to automotive retailers, today announced that CAR Research XRM is now participating in the Reynolds third party access program, which provides a platform for handling dealership data in a safe, secure, and verifiable manner. CAR Research XRM is a full service CRM and solutions provider focused on helping automotive dealerships fill their sales funnel and streamline their sales processes.
“The benefit of standardized access through Reynolds is that it takes a huge amount of custom programming and support costs off of our task list in trying to access a DMS,” said Craig Finnigan, CIO at CAR Research. “This, in turn, enables us to bring more resources to bear on developing the products and services that will help our customers operate more effectively.”
Since 2005, Reynolds and Reynolds has been working visibly with dealerships and OEMs on the safe, secure, and verifiable exchange of dealership data from a Reynolds dealership management system (DMS).
“At Reynolds, we have been addressing data access and security consistently for a number of years, as have other major DMS providers in the industry,” said Trey Hiers, vice president of Corporate Marketing at Reynolds and Reynolds. “Ultimately, dealers want to know that their data is safe and secure; that it is accessible by third parties, with appropriate safeguards and verification; and, that it will stay that way.”
The Reynolds third party access program provides a number of methods for dealerships to work with the vendor of their choice in a safe, secure, and verified manner when handling dealership data.
