Announcing DSES 2014 Innovation Cup Finalists

We at DrivingSales are happy to announce this year's finalists for the DSES 2014 Innovation Cup. The Innovation Cup is designed to recognize the most innovative dealership solutions of 2014 and this year will not disappoint. We received more applications than ever before making the contest even more competitive, and the level of innovation has never been higher. The DSES dealer panel had a difficult task to narrow down the list to just five and we're pleased to announce the finalists today.

 

 

The 2014 Innovation Cup Award finalists are:

  • Gubagoo Behavioral Engagement and Scoring Technology (B.E.A.S.T.), and Chat and Call Centersfrom Gubagoo
  • Lead Launch from CarWars
  • LotLinx Vehicle Display Network from LotLinx
  • Mid-Interval Communications from DMEautomotive
  • NewCarIQ from Pearl Technology Holdings, LLC
     

The Innovation Cup contest will uncover the Most Innovative Solution of the Year and we're anxious for these vendors to complete head-to-head on stage at DSES Oct. 12-14 where attending dealers will vote and decide who takes home the Innovation Cup. We recognize the many vendors who work hard everyday to create products and services impacting the success of dealerships and this contest is one way to celebrate that. 

We thank all those who applied and congratulate the five finalists! You won't want to miss these presentations as our finalists compete for the title of the Most Innovative Solution of the Year. The Innovation Cup Award at the 2014 DSES, which will be held Sunday, October 12th -14th at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. DSES had record attendance in 2013 and has sold out every year since inception. It remains unique in the industry because auto dealers determine the speakers and agenda rather than sponsors or vendors. Be sure to register asap before tickets sell out.

Great lot of finalists. Should be a tight race! Looking forward to it! Just throwin' the idea out there, but the Best Idea and Innovation Cup finalists should all get together at one point.
