About Open Dealer Exchange 

A joint venture between CDK Global™, LLC and The Reynolds and Reynolds Company, Open Dealer Exchange is a technology leader within the automotive F&I process for connecting lenders and F&I product providers with their dealer partners throughout the United States. By providing a direct connection into the dealership’s leading network — the DMS — Open Dealer Exchange virtually removes the need for the dealer to leave their system-of-record during the F&I process. This innovative process results in increased operational efficiencies, reduced contract errors, and a more streamlined process with a lender or provider’s franchised dealerships.
