Driving Sales' New Customizable Architecture Makes It Easier For Dealers To Access Critical Information They Need to Survive and Thrive

DrivingSales (www.drivingsales.com), the auto industry’s leading social media platform and largest online community, today announced a dramatic upgrade to its current platform in response to the explosive growth the site has experienced since its national launch one year ago. Now, dealers and auto industry professionals will be able to instantly find and share information from across the site’s robust library of knowledge – putting the most relevant information they’re seeking - whether ‘best practices,’ blog or forum postings, industry news, vendor ratings, video, etc. – right at their fingertips.

“Given the severe challenges the industry faces, our new platform was expressly designed to make it far easier and faster for the industry to access the best, most targeted mission critical knowledge, to help increase profitability, and survive and thrive in tough times,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder Jared Hamilton.

The only automotive social media solution specifically built to meet the needs of automotive professionals, DrivingSales’ completely redesigned, proprietary architecture was built entirely from the ground up, unlike most social media sites that run on, and recycle, plug-in apps.

Critical features of the all-new platform include greater scalability, a sleek new interface including much more dynamic profiles and “friending,” significantly faster processing, and advanced filters that allow users to drill down to find the precise knowledge they’re seeking. For instance, a user can now select a category like ‘Fixed Ops,’ ‘New Cars,’ or “Marketing,’ then select an action like ‘Grow Sales’ or ‘Cut Costs’ and the technology isolates, categorizes and presents all the site’s rich information on that topic.

“With its new functionality, DrivingSales will serve an ever greater role in putting information, solutions and 20-group style networking and collaborative problem-solving right at the fingertips of dealers and other industry professionals – and without them ever having to leave the office or showroom floor,” concluded Hamilton.

Created as a private automotive business community in 2003 by Hamilton to network his NADA Dealer Academy class, and opened nationally in 2008, DrivingSales’ mission is to marry the power of technology with the power of community to provide dealers, dealership managers and other industry professionals with a vendor-neutral, online environment where they can collaborate and share best practices, industry trends and news.
