The 2019 Car Dealer Power Awards – thank you to everyone who voted for us!
The 10th annual Car Dealer Power Awards took place last night at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. The prestigious awards are the end-result of a nationwide survey of the UK’s automotive retailers, enabling hundreds of dealers to speak freely about the suppliers and manufacturers they work with. The completely anonymous survey gives the industry a platform to champion the best providers without bias. It also serves as a true litmus test of how the industry is coping with current challenges, showcasing the products and services that have really made a difference to dealer performance.
GForces were honoured to be in attendance and nominated in a number of categories. With true transparency always at the core of the awards, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us, helping us secure “Website Provider for Franchised Dealers” for the fourth year in a row.
We are also extremely grateful to have our dedication to customer service recognised with the “Extra Mile Award”. We’re very pleased that both our services and software are positively impacting our clients and how their dealerships perform.
For the last two decades, GForces has forged partnerships with key third-party suppliers and providers, always ensuring that our platform is capable of hosting multiple integrations or linking to external systems with ease. For the second year in a row, it’s impressive to see Gubagoo highly commended in the category for “Consumer Lead Generation Site of the Year”. We were also extremely happy to see a number of other partners recognised. Cap HPI won “Provenance Check Provider of the Year” and were highly commended as “Used Car Valuations Provider of the Year”.
NetDirector® Auto-e is our next-generation ecommerce platform for car dealers. It delivers a complete end-to-end purchase path online, including guaranteed part exchange valuations and finance applications with instant credit decisions. We collaborate with a number of suppliers to make our offering as flexible as possible, and we were pleased to see two such providers, Aston Barclay and Black Horse Finance, highly commended in the categories of “Auction House of the Year” and “Finance Provider of the Year – Prime” respectively.
As a provider that works closely with Mazda UK, from producing stunning product videos to delivering dynamic digital marketing and support to their dealer network, we’d like to offer special congratulations to them for being named as “Manufacturer of the Year”.
Thank you again to everybody who voted for us. We look forward to next year’s awards, and in the meantime, you can catch up with how we performed in last year’s Car Dealer Power Awards here.
