Procede Software — What’s New — News — Procede Software Announces Certified Partner Program Procede Software Announces Certified Partner Program Procede Software, a leading enterprise software developer of Dealer Management System (DMS) solutions for the Heavy Duty Commercial Vehicle and Automotive industries, announced today its Certified Partner Program for third-party software developers. Procede Software’s Certified Partner Program provides approved third-party software developers’ access to a certified API, product management, and integration development resources allowing them to leverage the flexibility and power of Excede DMS’s Microsoft SQL Server database engine and proactively and collaboratively develop certified integrations. “Our desire here is to facilitate open communication and seamless data sharing between software applications that a dealership uses to run their daily business,” said Larry Kettler, Procede Software’s CEO. “We’re breaking down the walled garden that is all too prevalent in this industry, and making sure that our customers will recognize increased efficiencies as a result of our growing partnership ecosystem.” To ensure third-party integrations work seamlessly with Excede, each integration will undergo rigorous QA testing before becoming Procede-certified and released to the market. A designation of Procede-certified also ensures that Procede Software is engaged in ongoing interaction with the Certified Partner and provides ongoing support to the integration through future releases. “This program gives us the opportunity to provide best in class software applications to our customers, while still maintaining the outstanding data integrity and software uptime that Procede has become known for.” Kettler continued. “Our goal is to offer seamless data collaboration and minimize or eliminate the need for users to navigate between multiple windows, or duplicate data entry in order to complete a logical work flow process.” Certified Partners receive additional benefits from participation in the program, including direct access to Procede Software development resources, co-marketing opportunities, potential participation in trade shows and user conferences, a dedicated section in the online Procede Customer Portal, and partner profiles in the Procede newsletter.
