Real-Time DMS Integration

DMS integration used to focus primarily on enabling routine transactional data for processes like parts ordering or warranty claims to be sent to OEM systems without store personnel wasting valuable time rekeying information.

Now, integration patterns are more complex and sophisticated than ever before with the OEMs needing real-time data from DMS to support their new digital business processes.

The Challenge

Traditional integration approaches have largely consisted of OEMs defining proprietary interfaces for your dealer systems to support. The lack of standardization makes it difficult to scale for both sides.

OEM initiatives that require access to real-time data are further complicated when you must access a DMS API. Or do you go back to the traditional approach and have them build you another one-off? 

Real-time DMS Integration

Motive Retail is challenging legacy approaches and thinking when it comes to Real-Time DMS integration through re-use of existing DMS APIs compared to reinventing them over again.

The Solution

At Motive Retail we enable our OEM partners to get more systems integrated faster with the resources and support they need to get the job done right.

When the use-case demands real-time data from the dealer system, Motive can provide solutions to simplify matters. Re-use makes sense where OEMs implementing one-off integrations to multiple DMS APIs doesn’t.

Motive's MIX API platform uses standardized STAR-based, JSON/RESTful industry APIs that abstract differences across DMS APIs for implementation by OEMs, eliminating DMS dependencies and the need to build one-offs for each OEM.
