The 2011 best of the best according to you, the Dealers.

We’ve put a lot of emphasis on the Vendor Ratings lately and for good reason.  The practice of rating your vendors and vendor products provides honest feedback for your dealer peers and keeps the vendor solutions and industry professionals on their toes and evolving to provide better services to the dealer body. 

Each year in February, DrivingSales presents the Dealer Satisfaction Awards to the vendors and vendor solutions that have most satisfied their dealer clients throughout the course of the year.  Three awards are given in each of 14 categories: one for the Highest Rated and two more for the Top Rated.  And if the award recipients’ services or products didn’t knock your socks off enough, the trophies sure will.  Hand-crafted and especially designed to embody the Dealer Satisfaction energy, these trophies are custom made of marble and pewter, and stand as solid as the verified ratings that define them.

Award recipients will be announced on February 3rd at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas at the invite-only Dealer Satisfaction Awards Breakfast.  Follow along with our countdown to the awards at dealersatisfactionawards.com and after the unveiling, get the full scoop on the winners in each category, the runners-up, and all sorts of images, video, and more. 

Rate your vendors in the meantime and all year long at DrivingSales.com/ratings.

Although I do not know who the winners are of the Dealer Satisfaction Awards, I commend both the automotive community and the vendors for doing their part in making this happen. This is a significant accomplishment for the winners that undoubtedly required the dedication and cooperation of their entire teams in making their dealer clients happy. Keep up the great work.
