The Higher Gear Group Pleased to Announce Certified Status in Reynolds Certified Interface Program

The Higher Gear Group will now be able to serve users with a more secure data management system and provide added efficiency to all handling of dealership data.

Online PR News – 27-December-2010 – – SCHAUMBURG, ILL. – The Higher Gear Group, creators of an easy-to-use software solution for dealers, is announcing the company has been selected by the Reynolds and Reynolds Company for certification in the Reynolds Certified Interface (RCI) program.
The Higher Gear Group has been working closely with Reynolds to ensure dealerships experience seamless integration with all new enhancements made by Reynolds. As Reynolds has stated all ERA users must transition to ERAccess by Jan. 18, 2011, and The Higher Gear Group encourages all users to transition to the ERAccess as soon as possible. The RCI program is the conduit for Reynolds’ supported integration, and integration between ERA and The Higher Gear Group will only work through certified integration.
The RCI program standardizes how dealership data from a Reynolds dealership management system is handled, and The Higher Gear Group is pleased to bring their customers more assurance their data is safe, secure and in trusted hands. Dealerships will now have no question about The Higher Gear Group’s customer relationship management software and its compatibility with their Reynolds DMS.
“A standardized, supported interface with the DMS helps us serve our customers more effectively and efficiently,” said Robert C. Gruen, The Higher Gear Group President and CEO. “A secure data interface with a Reynolds DMS simplifies our data collection processes and helps us provide our customers with added peace of mind. They know we’re handling their data safely, securely, and reliably, without undermining data integrity in the DMS or diminishing DMS performance. Those are important benefits for us—and our customers—from the Reynolds approach.”
