Master your new DMS. Implement with confidence.

CDK’s experience allows a smooth transition to a new DMS, with a proven, methodical 6 Step Training & Implementation Process.

The 6 Step Training & Implementation Process

Our team of implementation specialists works with you and your staff to ensure your project runs smoothly, communication is clear, and disruption is as minimal as possible.  

Implementation Discovery

We start by laying the groundwork. We identify your business goals, review project scope, and assign dealership project contacts and the right CDK team.

Project Mapping

Timelines are planned out, as we align with you on training plans and specifications for each dealership department.

Site Readiness

Before go live, we complete pre-installation training, configure networks, migrate and convert data, and run Business Alignment Workshops. We confirm your hardware, forms, and setups.

CDK GoLive

As we go live, dedicated professionals support your team during the transition with hands-on coaching and progress tracking of team training.

Transition Meeting

All outstanding issues are assessed and resolved and management reviews are conducted prior to transitioning you to your post-installation support team.

Ongoing Training

Your dealership will continue to have training support available, so you can stay on track with ongoing training, with consulting services available if you need additional support.
