GM dealers raise concerns regarding CDK Global
Concerns included untimely dealer support, "clunky" functionality and simply not having another GM-approved choice for websites.

One dealer said Hill alluded to addressing the concerns in the future, without providing any details. GM declined to comment on CDK.

Two dealers said they would like to see GM add other providers for the services, like some competitors have done. GM does not mandate stores use CDK, however the company incentivizes dealers to do so to have consistent messaging for all the brands.

Buick-GMC dealers open to longer factory programs
The Buick-GMC National Dealer Council is open to changing annual factory initiatives for retailers, such as Standards for Excellence and Essential Brand Elements, to multiyear programs, according to newly appointed Chairman Todd Ingersoll.

"One of our goals, long term, is to instead of having it maybe be an annual program, have it be two or three years that you're locked in," said Ingersoll, a first-generation dealer who purchased his first store in 2001. "That way you can plan accordingly. That's particularly true with EBE, which is kind of broken up into two parts now — compliance, which is the facility, and the other is performance."
