ADP Lightspeed has a new name


Dealer management software developer ADP Lightspeed was renamed CDK Global Recreation.


The change follows a move Tuesday in which parent company CDK Global was officially spun off from Automatic Data Processing as a newly independent company.

CDK Global Recreation is still part of the former ADP Dealer Services organization, and the CDK Global Recreation team will retain the same people, expertise, scale and reliability the company is known for.

Lightspeed will remain the name for the company’s products and solutions. The company said the business remains focused on delivering an industry-leading dealership management system and related technology solutions for powersports, marine and RV dealerships.

“Being part of CDK Global gives us the ability to put a sharper focus on the clients we support, constantly striving to make it easier for our clients to run their businesses,” CDK Recreation vice president and general manager Greg Smith said in a statement.
