Sales Process Domain Model & API
The approved Sales Process API provides a domain model that maps the entire retail automotive sales process. Included in this are industry-first standards related to: customer and application information- including work, living, credit, references and more. The STAR Sales Process standards expand to include automotive inventory, finances with the addition of taxes, incentives and fees, salesperson commissions, the F&I process, and accessories. STAR’s Sales Process API has been created to standardize the data for the automotive industry’s common purchase types- cash, finance, and lease, as well. The approved model is already in use in production systems across multiple automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Dealer Service Providers- a classification that includes retail dealership DMS providers.
