The holiday season is always a time of reflection for me, and as part of the Fortellis team, there is so much to be thankful for this year. Beyond the milestones of millions of transactions, the 10X growth in app listings and the thousands of dealers our platform is serving, it’s how we’re helping dealers and their customers that matters the most. Here are some of the Fortellis apps you’ll be thankful for too, after subscribing to them in the Fortellis Marketplace.
