AutoMap Selected as One of Five Finalists to Compete for DrivingSales Innovation Cup

 

Portland, OR.—(Sept 11, 2017) – AutoMap, the leading inventory tracking and audit solution for dealerships, is thrilled to announce their inventory tracking solution has been chosen by a panel of top industry executives as one of five finalists to compete in the 2017 Innovation Cup Contest at this year’s DrivingSales Executive Summit.

The DrivingSales Innovation Cup contest is held during a DSES general session and uncovers the Most Innovative Solution of the Year. Five automotive vendor finalists are invited on stage to present their solution/product and compete head-to-head with each other. A panel of on-stage dealer judges reviews each solution with the competitors, then determines the winner of the Innovation Cup Award for “The Most Innovative Solution of the Year.”

“It is such an honor to be selected out of all of the online applicants to be one of five finalists to present on stage at the Innovation Cup,” said Mark Sargeant, Director of Sales and Marketing for AutoMap. “It shows that this solution is desperately needed in the industry for dealerships, audit companies, auction houses, lenders, and ultimately, the customer themselves.”

Through AutoMap, a blue-tooth enabled onboard diagnostics device (OBD) chip is attached to each vehicle, a simple set up that takes less than 30 seconds per vehicle. Once the device is enabled, each vehicle’s location is broadcast to the main software site, or AutoMap app on mobile, for tracking. Once all vehicles are tagged, dealership staff can instantly search inventory by VIN, stock number, or model, across multiple lots on their computer or smartphone through the AutoMap mobile app.

The OBDs installed are specially engineered for the harshest climates and have virtually no impact on vehicle batteries due to their low power draw. AutoMap also offers the system to auction houses and lenders.
