COMPARED to some website providers, 67 Degrees is a relatively new kid on the block – but it has wasted no time in making plenty of friends in the automotive industry.
The Brighton-based company has just picked up its second Car Dealer Power award after being named the best website provider for independent dealers for the second year – and naturally the team are delighted.
We caught up with marketing manager Stuart Harvey, who told us: ‘Winning any award is always great but winning at Car Dealer Power is that little bit more special because the award is earned off the back of dealer votes and feedback.
‘It’s always great to be liked and it was humbling to hear the feedback read aloud to the room. It’s also fantastic to retain our award for the second consecutive year.’
Asked why he thought 67 Degrees was so highly regarded, Harvey told us: ‘I think it’s our approach.
‘We don’t do the hard sell and always try to take a consultative approach. Couple this with our hands-on style of customer care and our service is among the best in the industry.
‘At 67 Degrees we all work exceptionally hard to give our dealers exactly what they want. We spend a considerable amount of time getting to know our dealers and the way that their businesses operate.
‘We also appreciate that running a dealership is an intensive task so we try to work as flexibly as possible. A core part of this is having a WhatsApp group with each of our dealers, as this gives them the opportunity to ask questions or request changes at their leisure.’
67 Degrees is in tune with the needs of dealers, largely thanks to the fact that so many members of the team are very experienced in the automotive industry.
‘Absolutely,’ confirmed Harvey. ‘Most of us have only ever worked with the motor trade. This background allows us to tailor our services accordingly.’
And finally there was a note of gratitude after another triumph at Car Dealer Power. Harvey said: ‘We’d like to say a huge thank-you to every one of our dealers for trusting us with their brand and to everyone in the industry who has supported our journey so far.’
