Last night saw members of the 67 Degrees team head down to Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower to attend the prestigious Car Dealer Power awards in what would prove to be a very successful evening.
Heading into the awards this year we were delighted to make it onto the coveted shortlist in the ‘Website Provider for Independent Dealers’ category as we looked to continue our successes from the previous couple of years.
Previous years have seen us receive ‘Highly Commended’ status in 2017 and the overall award in 2018. Last night would see us continue this streak as we were announced as winners for a second consecutive year.
Speaking as we were announced as winners, James Baggott, Founder and CEO of Car Dealer Magazine, said: “Our winner tonight received high praise indeed. One survey respondent said they received ‘great service from friendly people’ and another commented ‘our requests and feedback were acted on immediately’.
The winner of this category and the best website provider for independent dealers in Car Dealer Power 2019 is a company that works hand-in-hand with its clients to deliver results.” Taking to the stage to collect the award was 67 Degrees Account Manager, Susie Ancell.
This was the 10th annual Car Dealer Power awards and again the event took place at Portsmouth’s iconic Spinnaker Tower, with a black-tie dinner overlooking the city’s famous harbour.
Backed by Car Dealer magazine, the UK’s leading motor trade publication, the awards are unique in that they are subject to a wholly independent judging process. Each award is presented on the back of votes from those in the motor trade, recognising the best suppliers and franchise options for their businesses, via an online questionnaire.
CarDealer chief, James Baggott added: “Car Dealer Power started way back in 2010, in the very infancy of Car Dealer Magazine, with awards designed to celebrate the businesses and car manufacturers that treat their dealers as true partners.
“We knew there were many firms out there that worked with dealerships to help them improve their businesses and we wanted to give dealers the chance to tell us who these good guys were. “And that’s what makes these awards so unique – they’re the only ones in the industry that are voted for entirely by those in the motor trade themselves, which makes it a great honour for each category winner.”
At 67 Degrees we are delighted to be one of those winners and it’s a genuine pleasure to be able to add to our victories from last year which came in the same category and the Extra Mile Award respectively.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for your support and for trusting us with your business. We love working with each and every one of you so to collect an award that is voted for by our customers is an honour.
Thank you all so much.
