Connect a Customer to Your Dealer Management System
Both local and fleet customers can connect to your dealer management system via their customer number if your location is integrated with the dealer management system.
To integrate them, you need to add the customer number into this system as it appears in your dealer management system.
Only users with Service Manager permissions or above are able to update customer numbers for local profiles. If you do not have access, contact your service manager to update local customer numbers.
To integrate a fleet customer account with your dealer management system:
- On the Search screen, select NAME from the dropdown menu and enter the name in the search field.
- Click SEARCH
- Click on the Company Name.
- On the Asset List page, on the left side CUSTOMER LINKS menu, click Customer.
- Scroll down to the Custom Attributes section and enter the customer number in the Customer # field.
NOTE: If the fleet customer number is currently inaccurate and needs to be changed (i.e. the field is not blank) please have your service manager make this change.
- Click SAVE CHANGES.
- The fleet customer will now be integrated with your business system.
