MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CARite, a growing used-car dealership network with 24 branded locations across the country, announced today that they received DealerSocket's 2016 Sigma award for the independent market. The award recognizes a distinguished dealership using multiple DealerSocket products with superior results.
"We are honored to receive this award from DealerSocket, one of our most trusted technology partners," said John Neary, CEO at CARite. "With the DealerSocket CRM we have been able to streamline our lead management processes and implement better enterprise reporting. The team at DealerSocket has been responsive and supportive at every step."
Marylou Hastert, director of product marketing at DealerSocket, said the competition for this year's Sigma award was fierce. "We are fortunate to work with more than 4,000 of the most successful independent dealers in the country. However, when we considered CARite, it was clear that they exemplified the next generation of independent dealers by leveraging several different solutions in our technology stack. CARite has come up with their own technology mix from our platform including CRM, desking and websites for maximum efficiency and superior customer follow up."
