NCM Associates announced the launch of a collaboration with Tekion Corporation designed to solve issues that have beleaguered the industry for decades: data ownership, fragmentation and lack of visibility to much-needed business insights and intelligence. The combination of Tekion’s advanced technology with NCM’s operational expertise results in a partnership designed to support and lead the industry’s rapid and accelerated transition to digitization and modernization.
Under this collaboration, Tekion will work together with the NCM dealership advisory group to ensure that Tekion clients have access to the most comprehensive combination of both advanced analytics and operational intelligence. Tekion has also selected NCM as the preferred provider of their new Technology 20 Groups reserved exclusively for Tekion clients on an invitation-only basis.
Tekion Founder and CEO Jay Vijayan commented, “Both Tekion and NCM have aligned goals in enabling our dealers to run the best retail operations and deliver the best retail experiences. By partnering with NCM, the rapidly expanding Tekion dealer base is poised to benefit from the joint efforts of both organizations. For over 70 years, NCM has been working with dealers on translating data into operational improvement and now, Tekion’s most advanced technology and data platform will help enhance the improvement and value exponentially. We’re excited to welcome them into the Tekion environment.”
NCM President and CEO Paul Faletti added, “Make no mistake that Jay and his team are challenging the status quo. Their passion and commitment to elevating the performance of their clients through technology is inspiring. NCM’s pledge to support dealerships and their selected partners in maximizing potential is unwavering and we are honored to be welcomed into the energized community of Tekion advocates. This is undoubtedly a very exciting day for these dealerships and the industry alike.”
