It's been really great working with the CDK Open Platform team. We've achieved a lot in a really short space of time, and the process has been collaborative, iterative and successful!

Become a Certified Partner

  1. Sign-up

    When you sign-up we'll appoint you a Partner Program Manager who will guide you through the process of becoming certified.

  2. Development

    This is when you prepare your application for integration with CDK via the API layer.

  3. Testing

    Once the development is complete, the integration CDK will assist with testing to check for data integrity across both systems.

  4. Approval

    Your application will move to a pilot phase at a live dealer. At the end of the pilot, the integration will need to be signed-off by you, the dealer and CDK. At that point, you'll become a Certified Partner.

  5. Promotion

    Once certified, we'll give you go-to-market support to help promote your new 'Certified Partner' status, and your business will also be featured on our partner website.

How it works

At the core of the Partner Program is the CDK Open Platform, which consists of a number of APIs which enable your systems and applications to transfer data to and from dealers' dealer management systems.

Regular updates

We continually review and update existing APIs and launch new APIs for partners to use.
