SureSale’s automotive certification-as-a-service platform was named “Innovation of the Year”
Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2020 – SureSale, the gold standard for quality used vehicles and purchase protection, won the Gold Stevie® Award in the “Innovation of the Year” Business Services “category in the 18th Annual American Business Awards®. The category recognizes singular innovations in product development.
“The SureSale team is proud to receive this honor which validates our mission of enabling auto dealers to more easily certify more of their used vehicles inventory while providing greater peace of mind to used car buyers,” said SureSale President and Co-founder Jeffrey Schwartz. “We are particularly gratified that SureSale’s innovation was recognized by this award. Our information-rich certification-as-a-service platform could not be timelier as transactions between consumers and auto dealers have, by necessity, become more digital and contactless.”
SureSale bridges a major auto market gap by expanding the certified category to meet demand for Certified Pre-Owned vehicles (CPO) among the US’ 40 million used car buyers. SureSale is poised to create a sea change in the ability of automobile dealers to earn consumer trust for a much larger percentage of their used vehicle inventory, while meeting and exceeding the needs of shoppers who want to “be sure” about their used vehicle purchase. SureSale’s certification and marketing platform offers franchise and independent dealers across the US a turnkey program and technology that enables them to certify more of their used vehicle inventory. The platform, which helps to facilitate a more socially distanced purchasing process, provides vehicle history data, mobile vehicle inspections, and VIN specific data, including recalls, warranty coverages, and purchase protection, all presented through SureSale’s industry leading, proprietary Comprehensive Auto Report (CAReport).
“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity, and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and compassion. We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
