We found out some good news at the Kubota Dealer Meeting! At the meeting, Kubota president Masato Yoshikawa announced plans to collaborate with a limited number of business system vendors on new initiatives to improve and streamline dealer communications with Kubota. This means that only these supported business systems will provide dealers with this functionality! Charter Software is very pleased to be among the dealership business system vendors selected for collaboration on these initiatives. We will keep everyone posted as we get more information.
