DrivingSales Announces Most Innovative Dealership Solution of 2010: eCarList TrueTarget Mobile Wins Innovation Cup Award

DrivingSales Announces Most Innovative Dealership Solution of 2010: eCarList TrueTarget Mobile Wins Innovation Cup Award

Cobalt Digital Advertising Package, GOSO - Social Media Dashboard, ResponseLogix SmartQuote, VinSolutions VinLens and Website Dashboard are Finalists

LAS VEGAS, NV -- Oct. 25, 2010  -- DrivingSales (www.drivingsales.com), the auto industry's largest car dealer social network, presented eCarList TrueTarget Mobile with the DrivingSales Innovation Cup Award for Most Innovative Dealership Solution of 2010 at the Second Annual DrivingSales Executive Summit in Las Vegas.

The First Annual DrivingSales Innovation Cup Awards were created to recognize solutions introduced in 2010 whose innovative approaches have produced significant results for dealers.  Dealership solution-providers submitted applications online (most also received nominations from dealer customers), vendor names were blanked out, and a panel of dealers assessed each application.  Six were selected from dozens of online applicants to present onstage at the Second Annual DrivingSales Executive Summit, where dealers scored each solution.  

eCarList TrueTarget Mobile received the highest score.  Cobalt Digital Advertising Package, GOSO - Social Media Dashboard, ResponseLogix SmartQuote, VinSolutions VinLens and VinSolutions Website Dashboard were named as finalists.  

"Our mission was to uncover the most innovative vendor solutions for dealerships for 2010 -- and we were literally wowed by each and every dealer-nominated application," said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton.  "eCarList stood out in a remarkable field of competitors, each of which is set to create real world benefits to help dealerships thrive in the rebounding auto market. As one of our dealer judges put it: 'I am two thirds of my way through the applications and I want almost all these products at my store!'

Each dealer-nominated solution will be profiled at DrivingSales.com, and in the DrivingSales newsletter. For more information about the First Annual DrivingSales Innovation Cup Awards, go to:  www.drivingsales.com/innovationcup.
