50+ certified partners in the Keyloop Partner Programme

Keyloop's Partner Programme was established in 2018, enabling third-party applications to integrate with Keyloop’s open platform, utilising its standardised integration methods. This access benefits partners by opening new business opportunities and revenue streams, as well as providing enhanced solutions to mutual customers.

Over the past year, the Partner Programme has more than doubled in size, putting the number of partners signed up to the programme at 115 of which 59 applications have completed Keyloop’s robust certification process so far. In the UK, Keyloop has 16 certified partners and 12 in the certification process, meaning that the programme has been activated in over 700 rooftops this year. There is a well-established network across Europe, with recent growth in Italy, Spain, the Nordics and Benelux. In addition, there has been significant growth in new markets such as the Middle East and South Africa, showing Keyloop’s commitment to maintaining the momentum of the last year and expanding into other regions.

This achievement comes weeks after the launch of Keyloop, previously known as CDK Global International, demonstrating the company’s renewed mission to become the creator oftheautomotive retail technology ecosystem. By focusing on collaboration, insight and innovation, and with its open platform approach, Keyloop will use technology to drive new value to dealers, connecting everyone involved to advance the automotive industry. It will work with partners, retailers and OEMs to join up technology solutions from across the industry and redesign the automotive retail experience for the future. The Keyloop Partner Programme is just one manifestation of this open and collaborative approach.

Matt Benns, our Global Partner Director, comments:

“We are delighted to have reached this milestone in the Partner Programme and are excited to involve more organisations in our open approach. It has been clear for a while that the automotive industry needs to become more collaborative and innovative, and we are confident that Keyloop’s Partner Programme is a crucial step. By bringing together leading Partner solutions, we can help offer a seamless experience for customers and achieve our goal of making everything about buying and owning a car better.”

Keyloop has sights set on new targets for the Partner Programme, aiming for significant growth by the end of 2021. This includes leveraging the integrated solutions already developed to encourage the on-boarding of new partners, particularly large-scale enterprises. Jack McIntyre, Keyloop’s new Global Enterprise Manager, adds:

“Keyloop’s Partner Programme has scaled very successfully over the past 12 months and I am incredibly excited to have joined the team to accelerate growth in our enterprise space. Keyloop’s new open platform strategy provides the industry with significant opportunities to improve the way we collaborate and drive real-time efficiencies across the ecosystem. We already have a number of exciting opportunities moving through to completion and I look forward to growing our enterprise partnerships across the globe.”
