Auto Vendor Ratings Added to

October 14, 2008

SALT LAKE CITY — DrivingSales, an online dealership networking community, has added four new categories to its Vendor Ratings section. Dealers can now rate and review providers of dealer management systems, customer retention management software, voice Marketing, Internet training, and more.

Originally opened for dealer reviews in August of this year, Vendor Ratings continues to expand as the DrivingSales community grows, more dealers rate and review products, and vendors request new categories to be added as they list their products in the wiki-enabled dealer product catalog.

At a time when dealers are being forced to cut overhead expenses, making the best decisions for product and service purchases is essential. DrivingSales, as the automotive industry's original, real-time, neutral vendor ratings, makes this easier and more efficient for dealers.

Dealers who consult the Vendor Ratings are able to tap into the direct experiences other dealers have had with service providers to help determine which will best suit their needs. Vendors benefit from the direct exposure to DrivingSales' growing dealer membership base. Vendors can also connect and interact with their current clients and new dealer prospects through multiple media on the DrivingSales platform.

"The Vendor Ratings are beneficial to the industry on many levels and we will continue to add new categories to better serve our members," commented Jared Hamilton, DrivingSales founder and CEO. "Dealers now have access to fellow dealers' first-hand experiences with vendors, before they sign a contract and/or send a check. And vendors get exposure and interaction with dealers in this neutral setting. Basically, it provides publicity for service providers. Vendors also benefit from the feedback dealers offer with their reviews."

New Vendor Ratings categories will continue to be added as DrivingSales grows and more members of the automotive community join and participate. DrivingSales will present ongoing awards for the vendors who receive the highest ratings in their relative categories.
