Kia Motors certifies integration to cloud-native VUE DMS via Motive Integrator Certify to ensure higher quality, more secure connections
Norfolk, Va. – January 14, 2021 – VUE DMS, a cloud-native solution providing dealers the confidence to break free with digital mobility, security and efficiency to meet today’s rapidly changing market, announces its integration with Kia Motors dealers’ web daily communication system (DCS) via Motive Retail. This integration provides real-time data transmission for warranties, parts orders and returns, retail delivery reporting and VIN inquiries as prompted by the user. As a result, Kia dealerships can maximize synergy across different departments with a cloud-native DMS that offers inherent security and mobility.
“The completion of this integration demonstrates our commitment to helping our dealer partners get the most out of VUE,” said Dominion DMS President Sharon Kitzman. “Kia dealers can be confident that our cloud-native solution enables them to seamlessly scale their operations securely and efficiently.”
This integration is another step forward for VUE DMS to better serve the franchise dealer market with the only cloud-native DMS built on Microsoft Azure Cloud. With decades of experience serving dealerships, Dominion DMS enables users to streamline operations through bi-directional communications between VUE and Kia Motors. This ensures cost-effective and secure integrations that deliver timely and accurate data between the dealership and Kia, as well as third-party applications.
“Dealership operations have different departments that must all work together to achieve efficiency,” said Van Griffith Kia General Manager Marcus Chavez. “VUE allows us to streamline our business processes and improve productivity by making it easier for team members to collaborate in a fast-moving retail environment. We’ve also reduced redundancies with a simpler integration, resulting in higher cost savings and better communications.”
Kia Motors certifies the integration to VUE via Motive Integrator Certify, which is an automated integration platform that makes it easier for dealerships to securely connect with third-party systems. The integration between Kia Motors and VUE is further expanded to third-party dealer applications through industry API platform Motive Integrator eXchange (MIX).
“Motive Integrator Certify provides Kia and its integrating partners an online integration specification, and a fully automated test and feedback platform to accelerate and simplify the integration process,” said Motive Retail Co-founder and Principal Kim Campassi. “The Certify platform ultimately assures both parties with higher quality systems, interoperability and data.”
VUE will continue to support its long-standing partnership with Kia by continuously adding integrations as they become available. VUE DMS plans to officially launch at NADA Show 2021.
