Reynolds and Reynolds announced the availability of the Reynolds Private Managed (RPM) Network for dealerships using the Reynolds POWER dealership management system (DMS).
The RPM Network is a fully managed, private Wide Area Network (WAN) developed specifically for automotive retailers.
“In today’s highly digital environment, so much of a dealer’s business depends on the ability to seamlessly communicate over the Internet, between dealership stores, and with the OEM,” said Jon Strawsburg, vice president of product planning for Reynolds.
“In response, we’ve developed the RPM Network to meet the specific and complex networking needs of automotive retailers. The RPM Network delivers the reliability, performance, security, and flexibility dealers need to run their business efficiently and effectively.”
The RPM Network is said to help automotive retailers by prioritizing DMS traffic, reduce risk with a centralized firewall and layered security, an advanced reporting tool and increased productivity by monitoring employee Internet usage.
Reynolds says the RPM Network is scalable to meet the needs of all dealers. No word if Canadian dealers will benefit from the new service.
