What techniques are being used to overcome the security question? Is the only option to learn the question database and answer correctly? I know each dealer can apply to Reynolds and sign an agreement to have a userid become exempt but this won't scale up very well.
My second question is currently I do some relatively small marketing for 2-4 dealerships. Reynolds and ADP, what is the best software to access the report generator, or english statement screens and download the reports. My goal would be to have a PC at my home on a VPN with the dealerships, and automate the tedious process of exports. I have some programming background but would also consider hiring out the work. Are there any programs that are compatible with both systems that has a good API to allow reports to be fetched?
I spend hours every week doing these repetitive tasks and I'm ready for a better solution. Anyone with experience doing this? Or if you're a dev and is interested in quoting please contact me directly.
Great forums, Thanks!

Thanks for the advice. I will give them a call tomorrow.
I actually worked with Matt Bench recently on an ILM setup for one of the dealers I support. I was very impressed with his knowledge. From that conversation I gathered you guys are doing all of your own DMS interaction? Can you reveal if you developed something from scratch in house or if you are working with an existing application / api? I'm really just curious how hard it is to emulate the vt440 or whatever eralink/reflection is using.
