Every acquisition, every educational outreach, and now the first-ever Independent track at User Summit, reflect our commitment to serve the Buy-Here-Pay-Here market," said Antonio Rajan, Vice President of Independent Sales at DealerSocket.

The agenda for the Independent Track – which will take place the first day of User Summit – features a keynote from Jared Hamilton, Founder and CEO of The track also includes multiple networking opportunities, dining, entertainment and the following breakout sessions:

  • Roadmap of Independent Technology: Justifying the Investment
    A discussion of emerging Independent technologies and how they strategically fit together to increase efficiency, maximize ROI, and justify expense.
