Greet Customers in Lane

CDK Lane works seamlessly with our CDK Appointment solution and incorporates tablets in the service lane to enhance your customer greetings - available on both iPads and Surface Pros. Quickly begin the write-up process by rolling an appointment from the Daily View or scan a VIN for a walk-in customer. Your advisor can also scan a customer’s driver’s license (iPad only) for a brand new customer that has never previously been to your dealership. CDK Lane will help your advisors be more efficient while providing your customers a superior service experience.


Walk-around Inspection

Complete a walk-around damage and lane inspection during the write-up process. Your advisors can perform a damage inspection with photos and annotations tracking previous damage on your customer’s vehicle. A customized lane inspection can also be performed checking things such as tires and wiper-blades which will allow your advisors to upsell to your customers right there in the lane. This lane inspection can feed directly into the technician full lift inspection with our CDK Inspect solution.
