CustomerLink is Joining Demandforce, an Intuit Company

I have some exciting news- CustomerLink is going to join Demandforce, an Intuit company.

We share a vision around our passion for small business success and have common roots in the automotive industry so today we are announcing our plans to join forces. Once the acquisition closes, CustomerLink and Demandforce will remain dedicated to small business success. It’s our priority to keep you more than satisfied as a customer.

With products like QuickBooks, TurboTax, and Demandforce, Intuit is one of todays most respected and innovative software companies. Once the acquisition is final, we will be positioned to bring even more value to partners and service providers, including dealers and parts distributors.

CustomerLink and Demandforce also share a special value; our customers always come first.  We are dedicated to helping automotive repair shops maintain their competitive edge. Separately, we’ve seen great success providing easy-to-use, online marketing solutions that help businesses acquire and retain customers. Together, that won’t change, it will only get better.

We plan to deliver best in class solutions combining Demandforce’s communications and reputation solutions with CustomerLink’s postcard system and analytics capabilities, all supported by Intuit’s trusted brand.

This is just the first step of a transition to an exciting future. I’m sure you’ll have questions and we‘ll tell you more along the way.

On a personal note, every day we wake up to serve our customers and help make them a little more successful – it’s been an absolute pleasure serving you and we look forward to supporting your continued success.

Thank you.
