Auto Trader is accepting nominations for its 10th annual Click Awards, taking place on June 29.
For the last decade the awards have celebrated the UK’s best digital automotive dealers from across the industry.
This year six award categories will be presented including two new self-nominated awards:
- The Best Transformation of the Year Award will recognise a retailer who has applied a true business mind-set to their operation. The winner of this award will be an independent, franchise or supermarket that has made a single or companywide initiative, online or offline, which has helped their business meet the challenges of today’s fast evolving market.
- The Digital Innovator of the Year Award has been introduced to celebrate an individual or a team that are true digital innovators; those that saw a genuine business challenge or an objective within their organisation and answered it with a creative digital solution.
The remaining award categories will see qualifying dealer groups automatically entered. The top 50 franchised groups according to the current AM100 list, as well as the top 20 performing independent and top 10 performing supermarkets on Auto Trader will be entered automatically into the Best Digital Customer Experience and Digital Retailer of the Year award categories.
All dealer groups advertising on Auto Trader will be automatically entered for the Data Driven Retailer of the Year and Best Performing Dealer on Auto Trader awards. The awards are judged by a combination of consumer research, Auto Trader data and an independent judging panel.
Each award category is open to all dealership sizes, independent, franchise and supermarket. Entries are now being received at www.autotraderclickawards.co.uk/. Dealers have until 5th May 2017 to enter.
