DATA MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Architected around VinPlus's DataWare™ software platform that runs either on-board the DMS or off-board
depending on the required dealer implementation. This state-of-the-art software platform extracts
dealership data for participating programs or services and provides DMS applications with external
data necessary for participating programs and services by using proven automotive data schemas such as
sales, F&I, inventory, service. DataWare™ is the most secure, robust and cost-effective solution
in the industry today and is compatible with the DMS. In addition VinPlus complies with the relevant regulatory compliance that covers
data privacy and confidentiality such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley and Do Not Call Registry, as well as the individual
dealer agreements VinPlus and or its partners enter into with dealers. DataWare™ is installed in over 2,000 dealers in the marketplace today.
Dataware™ is an agent-based middle-ware component that provides rapidly-deployed software applications
and processes for the purpose of information extraction and database updating. Along with the "data", the
product provides the soft"ware" necessary to configure, codify, and execute complex extraction and update
DMS providers have tools for getting data in and out of their own systems. But tools alone will not provide
the feature/functionality, rapid development environment, or product life-cycle control required for
large-scale, third-party product or service deployments.
Dataware™ being a DMS-agnostic model is technically superior to traditional tool-based deployments:
||One interface specification for third-parties dramatically lowers development costs
||Software wrapper gives third-parties greater control of their own development processes
Why dealers Need DataWare™
Dataware™ provides all the necessary audit trails so that the Dealer is in full compliance with the new
laws regulating the safeguarding of consumer information. Don't be fooled into thinking that anyone else has
this responsibility or can provide adequate safeguard measures. The dealer organization or principal is
Who is getting your data today?
The answer to that question is, "who knows".
Do you know? Most Dealer Principals do not know. How would you find this out?
There are reasons why you don't know:
||Your data is "pulled" out of your DMS by vendors and others who dial-in to your modems.
||"Pulled" data is just that - the vendor decides when they will get your data and what they get. You have no audit trail to effectively or legally show what information you gave out.
