DreamWare Inc. has officially become a CDK Global vendor, which will allow its Auto.Live service platform to be offered to CDK Global 8500+ U.S. franchise vehicle dealerships once its national pilot is completed. Auto.Live being integrated into the dealership DMS system will allow it to provide the communication needed to both a dealership and their customers throughout a vehicle’s service process. Auto.Live will launch its dealership service shop pilot program late October / early November in Colorado. It’s expected to be in the pilot stage for 3-5 weeks before then being offered on a national scale. DreamWare Inc. is still not saying much about its Auto.Live platform until pilot is complete.
In June, 2016 DreamWare Inc. had a very hard decision to make; CarLister.co was starting to pick up a lot of traction, however the name did not say all that it had become. The platform grew to incorporate franchise dealerships, and wanted to offer a richer engagement between a vehicle owner and the dealership from which they purchased and serviced their vehicle. DreamWare Inc. decided that now was the best time for a name change to better express that we offer more than just listing cars. And soon CarLister.co will transition into Auto.Live, keeping all of the rich features that consumers came to love about CarLister.co, without the branding restrictions. It will also offer an unparalleled level of communication and engagement between a vehicle owner and their dealership.
