What happens after July 1st, 2020?
After July 1st, we will only add and/or modify certified vendor tools on our websites.
Do all vendors have to be part of the program?
Participation is optional, however, without an agreement in place installations/maintenance
of non-certified vendor tools will not occur after June 1, 2020.
Why was this program created?
The Certified Partner program was created as a response to an influx of development,
implementation and maintenance requests from our vendor partners. It ensures that we are covering the
associated costs, following a standardized process for all vendor partners and ensuring seamless
integrations on all websites.
Will reporting be available for vendors, and if so what will it include?
EDealer will provide the vendor with a CSV on a monthly basis indicating the number of tool
installs, along with a related ticket # and activation date.
What happens if a vendor doesn’t want to be part of the program but their
tools are used on our websites?
If a vendor chooses not to participate in the program, their tools will remain on our dealer
websites but no further maintenance nor installs will occur until an agreement is in place.
What does a vendor need to provide to be certified?
Vendors need to provide samples (scripts/mockups) of their tools for EDealer to test on our dealer
websites. EDealer will then work with the vendor to create a seamless integration into our system.
