Hyundai's New Web-Based Dealer Communications System



by John Larkin

Oxlo Systems Inc. recently announced the completed integration of Hyundai's new Web-based dealer communications system (DCS) that enables Hyundai to efficiently deliver what their dealers want: open choice of tightly integrated dealer management systems (DMS). The Oxlo integration enables 11 additional DMS systems to be Hyundai-certified at no incremental cost to Hyundai.

As Hyundai adds additional business processes over time, Oxlo will coordinate and certify the implementation process for each dealer system vendor, thereby saving Hyundai additional costs on an on-going basis. Prior to Oxlo, the high integration and maintenance costs had limited the number of DMS applications supported by Hyundai.

"Our dealers wanted the broadest range of options possible in dealer systems and we partnered with Oxlo Systems to fulfill this request," said Rich Hoffman, CEO, Hyundai Information Services North America.

"Working with Oxlo to integrate with our new web-based DCS was easy and professional. As a matter of fact, the Oxlo integration process was so smooth, their implementation was first to go live."

Jim Estes, Dealer Principal of Merced Hyundai in California, found the prior selection of only two integrated dealer management system vendors unsatisfactory. "We had to choose a DMS application that best matched our business needs - namely Autosoft - athough it lacked direct Hyundai integration. Hyundai has now resolved this conflict, enabling tight integration between our DMS application and their new web-based DCS application, resulting in improved efficiencies for our dealership operations" said Estes.

"We're pleased to help bring cost-effective choices in dealer systems to Hyundai and appreciate the confidence Hyundai has placed in Oxlo" said Jim Lejeal, Oxlo Systems chief executive officer and co-founder. "This relationship demonstrates the value proposition Oxlo offers to automakers worldwide that are facing similar challenges balancing their need for improved integration with dealers' desire for greater choice of systems."

The following dealer service providers have integrated or agreed to integrate with Hyundai through the Oxlo partnership: ADAM software, Applied Computer Solutions, Auto/Mate, Automotive Computer Services, AutoSoft, Dubuque Data Services, MPK Automotive Systems, NeoSynergy, Procede Software and Quorum Information Technologies.
