Dealerware has been selected by Audi Canada as the preferred fleet management software for its courtesy vehicle program. Already the preferred provider to Audi's U.S. retail locations, Dealerware will now service the 49 Audi retailers in Canada, many of which today use paper-based fleet management systems.
"The application of Dealerware to our retail network is one of the first of many steps we are taking to rapidly accelerate various mobility solutions for a modern, customer-centric experience," said Audi Canada Director of Business Development Douglas Black. "By beginning with fleet management, we will have the ability to offer operational efficiencies to our dealer partners as well as an enhanced service solution for Audi customers."
Dealerships that elect to power their courtesy vehicle operations with Dealerware will be provided with a streamlined vehicle management platform, Dealerware's 60-second mobile contracting, automated cost recovery and robust reporting tools.
"The need for modern fleet management and mobile-first experiences is growing every day," said Dealerware Chief Executive Officer Matt Carpenter. "Dealerware is ready to help Canadian retailers deliver enhanced experiences to their customers around fleet use, and we are excited to work with Audi Canada and the Audi retailers on the even larger-scale mobility opportunities of tomorrow."
Since beginning its internationalization efforts in mid-2020, Dealerware has gained a strong foothold in Canada where it currently supports dealerships representing 16 OEM brands across the region.
