This year's Diamond and Platinum Award winners in the category of Online Auctions – Purchasing Inventory were a couple of familiar faces.
There was a lot of competition in the Subprime Credit Finance category, but some familiar names once again rose to claim the top spots.
A new winner is on the block for this year’s Diamond Award for Prime Credit Finance - Non-Captive, while a provider absent from the top three for a few years came back to take the Platinum Award.
In a fierce, competitive battle, several newcomers jumped in to take the Platinum and Gold Awards for Prime Credit Finance - Captive. After a brief absence in 2011, one provider snuck back in and claimed the Diamond Award.
This year makes Double-Diamond and Double-Platinum wins for two consistently high performers in the category of Service Contract Provider - Reinsurance.
Only six-tenths of a point separated the winners in the Service Contract Provider category this year.
An industry standard won this year's Diamond Award in the Desking Software, but another familiar name was not far behind.
The race for the top in the F&I Trainer category was a close one this year. Dealers put two companies neck-and-neck, separated by only a tenth of a point.
This year’s Diamond Award winner has been a consistent force in the Internet Trainer category, challenged by only one other provider.
This year saw the return of a perennial favorite and a huge win by a newcomer to the Sales Trainer category.
Of all 21 categories in the Dealers' Choice Awards, the direct mail category is the only one that has seen almost no movement among the top two in five years.
The Customer Relationship Management category is constantly in motion. A whopping 17 companies have ranked above average over the years, and there’s been movement among the top companies every year.
For dealers, online inventory marketing is a key component of their digital marketing strategy, and there are several providers that facilitate this.
This is the second year that Auto Dealer Monthly has recognized chat providers in the Delaers' Choice Awards. This year, a mere tenth of a point separated the winners.
Website and website design providers have been an integral part of the DCAs ever since the Awards' inception. As in 2011, two providers dominated the category this year.
The Special Finance Lead Provider category should probably win a survival award because the providers in this category endured the subprime meltdown.
If there ever was a stable category, the Used Vehicle Internet Lead Provider cateogry would be it. This year’s winners each made it two in a row.
Dealers vote for several different New Vehicle Internet Lead Providers each year, and two familiar names returned in 2012 along with a first-time Diamond Award winner in the category.
