La Crosse, WI & Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 19, 2015 -- DrivingSales announced that finalists have been selected for the seventh annual DrivingSales Innovation Cup Award, which recognizes the most innovative dealership solutions of 2015. Over 60 companies applied for the award, a 50% increase from 2014, but DrivingSales’ panel of dealer judges could choose only five finalists to compete for the award.
Finalists will compete onstage for the Innovation Cup Award at the 2015 DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES), which will be held Sunday, October 18 through Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at the Bellagio Las Vegas. The DSES, which has sold out every year since inception, is unique in the industry because auto dealers determine the speakers and agenda. Registration is open now online at http://www.dses.com.
“We are honored to have been chosen as finalists for the seventh annual DrivingSales Innovation Cup Award. The revolutionary DealerVault product fulfills all data needs while simultaneously empowering dealers with complete control over and visibility into the movement of their data,” stated Stephen Cottrell, Founder/CEO of DealerVault.
DealerVault is the industry’s only data distribution and syndication tool leveraging cloud technology and protecting DMS data with cyber liability insurance coverage. DealerVault is a simple and intuitive data management tool that empowers dealerships to control data deliveries in a secured environment with complete visibility. Unlike traditional automotive data solutions, DealerVault is the sole third party connection required at a dealership, and utilizes a single extraction process daily. Data is available to the dealer for syndication to their vendors at the touch of a button. Dealers can control what data is sent to each individual vendor and deactivate feeds quickly and easily.
DealerVault was one of five Innovation Cup finalists selected by dealers and will present onstage at the DrivingSales Executive Summit on October 19th. A panel of dealer judges will ask questions of each presenter and score each product. The solution with the highest score will be presented with the Innovation Cup Award for “Most Innovative Solution of 2015” on the final day of the Summit.
“Once again, the range of applications our dealer advisory board chose from was outstanding, with so many innovative and exciting products that are destined to move our industry forward,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder Jared Hamilton. “The five selected to compete for the Innovation Cup will, we have no doubt, provide our dealer attendees with many of the solutions they have been looking for. This competition is one of the highlights of the DSES and these five finalists will make us all proud of, and inspired by, the inventive minds working every day to make our industry better.”
