Kia Motors America first launched its expanded DSP Certification Program in January 2009. Since that time, Motive Retail has certified four new dealer systems on behalf of KMA, and there are more to come.
Effective December 1, 2009, Kia Motors extended the program for another year to enable those DSPs yet to sign up, the time to do so. There are 3-5 more companies who have expressed interest but did not have the project resources available during 2009. Motive expects to announce additional certified DSPs in 2010.
Those interfaces available for certification by DMS systems include: Delivery Reporting, STAR DTS Version 1.7; Parts Order, STAR DTS Version 1.7; Parts Return, STAR DTS Version 1.6; and Repair Order, STAR DTS Version 3.5.
