Client Story

Luke Technologies LLP, one of the Facile Technolab Team's onshore partner needed help in modernizing a legacy ColdFusion web application of a popular automobile association in the United States so that the web application can better serve their renewed business processes and operations changed so much across the years since the web application has been built.

Business Case

The Cleveland Automobile Dealers Association (GCADA) was originally assembled in 1903 to participate in parades, contests, and automobile shows. The first Cleveland Auto Show was held at Gray’s Armory in February that same year in downtown Cleveland, featuring 15 Cleveland-made automobiles, in addition to several other manufacturer's exhibits from other cities throughout the country.

Today, the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association (GCADA), which represents over 250 new motor vehicle dealerships in a 21-county region of northern Ohio, including franchised new-car and truck, motorcycle and recreational vehicle (RV) dealers, provides 45 products and programs, including many specialized services such as a second-tier financing company, HR management program, sales consultant and title clerk training classes, in-house legal services, and promotes the Cleveland Auto Show.
