Sum-Ware-BlackText_withTagline

Hynts by Sum-Ware takes the guess work out of following-up with customers by automating personalized text and email messages for dealers. They provide their customers the ability to quickly build rapport, improve the full customer experience, and increase CSI scores while reducing labor costs.

Dealers can easily customize their own automated messages to reflect their individual brand. Hynts helps contain customer information within the dealership by eliminating the need for advisors to use their personal phones. All of this without any additional applications to install or learn!

Due to the nature of their business, customer and dealership data is very sensitive and they treat it as such. Hynts by Sum-Ware, which automatically follows-up with customers, does not need all the information provided in a DMS data feed. With DealerVault, their clients are able to restrict certain information that is not imperative to our business.

When a Hynts customer sets up with DealerVault, they will be able to use the pre-set DMS feed where they will not need to worry about sending additional non-essential information and keep their sensitive information contained within the dealership. Integrating Hynts with DealerVault will help contain customer information within the dealership by eliminating the need for advisors to use their personal phones.

“Data Access Battle Goes Nuclear” -The Banks Report, Cliff Banks

Banks report

Industry thought leader, Cliff Banks, published an article to his regular publication The Banks Report titled “Data Access Battle Goes Nuclear”.

The article highlights the struggle between DMS firms and other automotive third party vendors over access to dealership data and integration by outlining the recent events surrounding new security initiatives and their true implications.

“To be fair, the issue has plagued the automotive retail space for more than 20 years as certain DMS firms have sought to restrict or control third party access to their systems. But the industry is entering a new phase in which the stakes are much higher than increasingly more acrimonious battle lines being drawn. …The next several months will be some of the most critical vendors have seen in recent years. Access to the data is quickly becoming the driving issue in the industry.” -Cliff Banks, October 12, 2015, The Banks Report
