Dealertrack’s incadea Expands Reach into Strategic Global Markets with incadea.myengine DMS

Leading Automakers and Dealer Groups Select incadea’s DMS for Multi-National Scalability, Simplicity and Single-Platform Approach

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y.--()--Dealertrack Technologies (Nasdaq:TRAK) today announced it has secured several customer wins with some of the world’s most recognized automakers and dealer groups for its incadea.myengine automotive DMS solution. Munich-based incadea will strengthen its presence in several growth markets, including Europe, Africa and Latin America, by leveraging the uniquely competitive value of its Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013-based scalable DMS solution.

“Global automotive retail is maturing at a rapid rate, and OEMs are looking for solutions that support localized needs in emerging markets, but also provide a consolidated view of their international dealer networks,” said Patrick Katenkamp, chief executive officer of incadea. “Dealertrack’s incadea solutions were specifically designed to drive and streamline the international retail strategies of OEMs. Our recent wins across the globe underscore our vision for the industry, and provide a strong opportunity for market penetration of additional products and solutions, such as digital marketing.”

Incadea’s global DMS system - incadea.myengine - removes the complexities OEMs encounter when expanding or entering into emerging markets because of its ability to support multiple currencies, branches, languages, and vehicles makes and models within a single platform. It provides international OEMs with an innovative, simplified approach to consolidating and scaling their operations worldwide.

The latest regional and worldwide OEMs and major dealer groups who have embraced incadea’s DMS solution include:

  • Africa - A leading global trading and distribution company will implement incadea.myengine to 11 importers in Africa.
  • Asia Pacific – A leading OEM in Asia Pacific will begin a pilot project for the latest version of incadea’s DMS.
  • Brazil, Mozambique and Portugal - A major Portuguese dealer group will implement incadea.myengine across its outlets in Brazil, Mozambique and Portugal.
  • Czech Republic - incadea’s certified partner, Webcom, integrated Daimler’s aftersales application, Xentry Portal Pro, with incadea.myengine.
    • In addition, the Daimler International Make Layer (IML) developed by incadea specifically for Daimler, will expand to connect to 19 more interfaces/systems. The Daimler IML is designed to allow seamless communication between the DMS and the OEM’s systems.
  • Ecuador and Uruguay - Daimler Importers Worldwide will implement incadea’s DMS solutions in Ecuador and Uruguay.
  • Middle East - One of the major Middle East-based automotive dealership groups has signed a contract to implement the incadea.myengine dealer management solution at its regional rooftops, including accounting and central functions, for more than 500 end users. A main automotive brand of this group is General Motors.
  • Netherlands - New agreements in the Netherlands include contracts with major dealer groups covering Mercedes trucks, Opel, PSA and Citroen.

“These wins present valuable opportunities for Dealertrack to help evolve the automotive retailing industry on a multi-national level,” added Katenkamp. “We are confident we have the advanced technology approach that OEMs are looking for to help them drive their businesses forward, both locally and globally.”
