DUBLIN, Ohio – UNITED Equipment Dealers Assn. (UEDA) is pleased to announce that their new interactive UNITED OPE FLAT RATE GUIDE (OPE FRG) is now available for annual subscription enrollment.

This new online tool will provide dealers with a web portal and secure API to find and report OPE flat rate repair times with more current accurate information than what is provided by OEMs. With this information, dealers can increase their productivity and profits and improve customer relations. The new system, developed in partnership with and powered by Charter Software, Inc., and with data incorporated in conjunction with Bob Clements, International, includes an API that will work with most Dealer Management Software Systems. UEDA will provide interested business system vendors access to the flat rate API (at no charge) so they can build integration allowing work orders in their software to access and report on the flat rate information.

Repair information is included for these manufacturers with additional manufacturers to be added as demand dictates: AGCO, Allis Chalmers, Briggs & Stratton, Craftsman mowers & garden tractors, Craftsman snow throwers, Cub Cadet, Exmark, Honda, Husqvarna, John Deere, Kawasaki, Kohler Engines, Massey, MTD (et al), New Holland, Poulan, Scag, Simplicity, Toro, and Weed Eater.

Over the next several months UEDA will be adding data for compact and utility tractors as well as RTVs and UTVs.
