Finalists will present their solution on stage for the dealer panel and attendees at the DSES on Monday, October 14th.
"The Innovation Cup Award represents one of the highest accolades our industry has to offer its dealership solution providers: the vote of those who understand its benefits the most—auto dealers," said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton. "We congratulate DealerSocket on being named a finalist for The Innovation Cup Award from a field of outstanding applicants and look forward to sharing Enterprise Dashboard Reporting's progressive solution with attendees at the DrivingSales Executive Summit."
