See what our dealers have to say about LightspeedEVO

"We used Lightspeed NXT for nearly 15 years without complaint. We had contemplated converting to LightspeedEVO several times, but because of our love of NXT, we kept talking ourselves out of it. After making the conversion over to EVO, I have to say, we couldn’t be happier. The conversion was seamless and the staff from CDK was on hand for two weeks to answer questions, provide additional training, and quickly fix any issues we may have had. EVO is FAR beyond NXT. Reports that took minutes now literally take seconds to generate. If I were to write everything down we love about EVO over NXT, I think I would have a small novel. Great job and our thanks to everyone at CDK!"

Curtis Campbell, Abernathy Cycles

"With our previous DMS, we had to monitor data very carefully, and the data wasn’t always good. That held us back from wanting to grow. But with LightspeedEVO, our decision making has been enhanced because the reports are useful to our company and our needs. We can continue to grow and not worry about the system holding us back."

Brad Haire, RCD RV Supercenter

"Upgrading from Lightspeed NXT to EVO has been a comfortable and seamless transition. EVO is very intuitive, straightforward and easy to use. I appreciate the competent EVO Transition Team that ensured we were up and running with little interruption and constantly followed up. Service Connect has also helped us get answers to our questions very quickly. I give EVO a true thumbs up and encourage all dealers to implement it right away. "

Leslie Gilbert, Iron Horse Motorcycles
"Lightspeed hosted is night and day better than in house NXT... Add to the equation that we no longer have to perform updates, server maintenance and reboots just makes it even better... Our day now is way more productive than its ever been."
Mark Bould, Friendly Yamaha
"Having the right DMS is an important part of creating the proper foundation for a dealership's current needs and future business plans. At OneWater Marine we have grown from 8 to 50 locations in the last 6 years which means we need a DMS which can handle the volume of transactions we create in a logical, systematic manner. We use CDK LightspeedEVO because it is the best system out there!"
Cindy Thompson, OneWater Marine
"Thanks to all of the teams, Lightspeed's and our dealership's, for helping to make our transition to EVO easy. I really think that it helped that everyone had completed all of their training, along with the managers all completing multiple courses. Having a test site setup that everyone was able to play on prior to Go-Live was really the critical part."
Andy Galliher, Freedom Cycle, Concord, NH

"We have been a long-time client of CDK. Lightspeed EVO is a rock-solid product, complete with built-in accounting software that provides a robust and fool-proof process. We're happy to bring CDK into our dealership."

Cody Atkinson, State 8 Motorcycle, Ohio
