Everybody likes recognition. After working many years exclusively in dealer systems integration, it was nice to see the Woods & Seaton Briefing No. 30, dated November 29, 2012 confirm what we already believed, that “OEMs need a more efficient process for managing integrations.” Per the Briefing, automakers in Europe are expressing growing interest in having an ability to manage “integration of ‘100s’ of Dealer Systems.” Recently we are seeing more automakers who understand , as the Briefing states, that “integration is essential for Sales and Service performance, and Network control.” The result is that an increasing number of automakers in both Europe and North America are starting to evaluate whether they have the processes and tools necessary to keep up in an increasingly integrated world.
Motive’s business and our software are designed specifically to provide automakers a world class solution that allows them to be more nimble in improving dealer performance. The OEMs that are currently using Motive Integrator and those that have begun evaluation of the Motive approach seem to agree that we are on to something. We appreciate Woods & Seaton’s recognition of the growing importance of dealer systems integration and acknowledgment of Motive as the only known provider of a comprehensive solution.
