Reserve Vehicle Inventory Items

Find and reserve inventory vehicle stock, instantly removing it from sale.

Overview

For partners, retailers or OEMs who need to reserve a dealership's vehicle in stock, and remove it from sale. Reserve Inventory Vehicle helps to ensure vehicle availability is up-to-date and accurate. Time is saved by reducing the need to update manually and once the reservation is sent to the CDK Dealer Management System (DMS), the vehicle is no longer available to sell. Unlike having an un-integrated vehicle reservation function on a front end system, this product sends the vehicle reservation details back to the relevant stock vehicle in the DMS. This gives the prospective customer confidence as their reserved vehicle is removed from sale.

Availability: Aswin, Autoline, Autoline Drive and EVA
