HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – January 25, 2014 – ADP Dealer Services, Inc. a division of ADP® and a leading global technology solutions partner dedicated to helping dealerships drive measurable results across every area of their operation, announced today an enterprise license agreement with Ford Motor Company (F:NYSE) for the ADP Service Edge solution.  

Ford will rebrand the ADP solution for Ford and Lincoln dealers as Ford & Lincoln SMART Technology powered by ADP.  These applications were designed specifically with the customer experience in mind.

“Ford and ADP have recognized that we’re reaching a new era in the service department where the customer is more empowered and expects more control, transparency and personal treatment,” said Bob Karp, ADP’s SVP North America Operations and Sales.  “The ADP Service Edge technology enables this transformation, plus it gives dealers a consistent process to drive their growth in service.”

Ford has begun a national rollout campaign to announce the first component of SMART Technology, SMARTT Appointments—Ford’s new, DMS-integrated, online solution, which helps Ford and Lincoln customers schedule service appointments at their preferred dealership by simply visiting Ford and Lincoln websites, including Fordowner.com and Lincolnowner.com.  Customers can select their preferred Service Advisor, maintenance package and method of transportation.  Also, appointments are recorded seamlessly into the Dealer Management Systems, and automatic reminders are emailed to customers in advance of every visit.

Additional SMART Technology system modules will be announced later this year.
