CDK Increases Accounts Payable Functionality through Collaboration with FileBound

Heavy equipment dealers will now have access to simpler, more effective accounts payable workflows

LONDON, Ontario – February 28, 2014 – CDK, a leading Dealer Management Systems (DMS) provider and a division of CDK Dealer Services, Inc., announced today a new integration agreement with Upland Software. The agreement enhances CDK’s IntelliDealer™ accounts payable functions with Upland’s FileBound application for document and workflow automation.

CDK customers that elect to take advantage of this integration will be able to leverage FileBound’s ease-of-use and scalability, while still reaping all the benefits of IntelliDealer.

Dealers will be able to utilize FileBound’s invoice automation to help reduce workflow bottlenecks, better manage accounts payable polices, improve employee productivity, and reduce dealership costs.

“At CDK, we’re excited to begin this new relationship with FileBound,” said Frank DeDecker, CDK Director of Development. “Through this collaboration, FileBound and CDK will be able to increase the robustness of our accounts payable solution, while continuing to improve efficiencies and innovate in the market.”

Another important feature of FileBound is its ability to capture invoices electronically. The system can then manage the approval and routing process through a drag-and-drop workflow process, helping to ensure that no step is overlooked.

“FileBound has been innovating in the area of document and workflow automation since 2001—this collaboration with CDK is a natural extension of our product offering,” said Sean Nathaniel, Vice President of Technology at Upland Software and General Manager for the FileBound product line. “We look forward to continuing to serve heavy equipment dealers with the tools they need to improve the flow of enterprise work.”

CDK dealers already using FileBound as a stand-alone application have seen measurable results since implementation. They have been able to increase their invoice processing efficiency and eliminate express shipping charges, leading to recuperation of their initial purchase cost of FileBound’s software.

“CDK’s DMS includes comprehensive financial management solutions already,” said DeDecker. “But when you add in FileBound’s industry expertise, CDK dealers can achieve improved process automation, as well as speed and cost savings. It’s a win-win for all of our dealers.”
