Patent-Pending Benchmarking Tool Provides the Industry’s Most Accurate Data and Comparisons

SmartGroups™, the fastest-growing provider of 20 Groups for independent retail automobile dealers in the U.S., has partnered with leading automotive retail technology company CDK Global to integrate its systems with LinUs™, SmartGroups’ proprietary patent-pending benchmarking software.

Through the partnership, LinUs will be fully integrated with CDK’s dealer management systems and customer relationship management software, using their data directly to provide the used vehicle industry’s most precise financial comparisons and industry benchmarks.

“SmartGroups are 20 Groups reimagined, thanks in part to LinUs, an industry-first for independent dealers that completely integrates with most DMS software,” SmartGroups founder and CEO Justin Osburn said. “That provides SmartGroups members with the most accurate data available in the independent space and a clear picture of where their dealership stands.

“We’re very excited to partner with CDK, a leader and innovator in dealership technology and automation.”

As a member of the CDK Global Partner Program, one of the largest third-party partner programs in the industry, SmartGroups is part of a marketplace of applications and integrations developed by CDK Global, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDK) to help automotive dealers succeed.

The CDK program provides its partners with access to a diverse CDK ecosystem through the ability to integrate with a range of CDK applications, as well as with CDK dealer and third-party websites.

“We’re pleased to introduce SmartGroups and its groundbreaking LinUs technology as the newest member of the CDK Global Partner Program,” said Sandy Orlando, senior vice president, Data and Fortellis, CDK Global.

“LinUs is a welcome addition to our vibrant program that provides dealers with a range of partner choices and the assurance that their programs can be seamlessly integrated with our applications.”

Using data extracted directly from DMS and CRM tools, LinUs gives dealers an at-a-glance view of operational data and important metrics about their dealerships, as well as live access to data from their fellow 20 Group members across the country.

It also includes real benchmarks created by aggregating the user base and calculating based on the period being researched.
