The Award Process
This is the sixth year Auto Dealer Monthly has recognized the most highly regarded vendors, suppliers and finance companies in the retail automotive industry, as voted on by dealers and dealership personnel. The survey provided dealers and their employees the ability to offer their collective selection of the top providers to the retail auto industry.
Overall, 54 awards were given to 42 companies, all chosen by dealers and dealership personnel. In 20 distinctive categories of products and services, more than 11,000 votes were cast. Ratings were gathered on the performance of the product or service, as well as the customer support and service provided, and the overall value compared to cost to the dealership.
The complete list of winners, as well as any provider or finance company that rated higher than the group average score in any category can be found at http://www.AutoDealerMonthly.com.
