We have brought the date of the awards evening forward this year – so if you want to have your say on the best manufacturers and suppliers to do business with, there’s no time to lose.
And if you’re one of the many companies with whom dealers do business in the UK, it’s time to give your colleagues in the industry a gentle nudge and get them to give you a mention when they fill out the survey form!
We’ve streamlined the whole process this year so it’s easier than ever to take part. A handy new scoring system, in which marks are awarded out of 10, is simple and straightforward to use.
And for the winning suppliers and manufacturers, there’s no doubt that picking up a gong at our awards ceremony, held each year at Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower, can give a business a welcome boost.
One of our winners last year was the web design and digital marketing company Bluesky Interactive. They were delighted to pick up TWO awards – one for best web design for franchised dealers, and the highly coveted ‘extra mile’ award, where a particular company that goes above and beyond the call of duty is recognised for its efforts.
She added: ‘It also showed that we really do care about our clients and the level of customer service we provide.
‘The web design award was very, very nice, and was really great for the web design team as they realised their work was appreciated, and of an award-winning standard.
‘But it was the extra mile award that made a massive difference to us because the whole company is built around us trying to go out of our way to offer great service to our clients. To know that they appreciate that is really good.’
All completed Car Dealer Power survey forms must be with the Car Dealer team by March 31 please.
