Auto-lead Data Format (ADF) is an open XML-based standard specifically for communicating consumer purchase requests to automotive dealerships. Thirteen leading automotive-related Internet companies developed the ADF standard and many vendors of Customer Retention Management systems serving the automotive industry support ADF.
Leads are delivered via EMAIL with XML as the body of the email.
You can use the LeadConduit ADF integration to send an automotive lead to any CRM supporting the ADF format.
