Online Auctions – Purchasing Inventory

Winning the Diamond Award for the second consecutive year is Manheim. “The same customer focus that keeps us in the top categories for traditional auctions services provides the energy and passion to our online channel,” stated Joe George, group vice president of online solutions for Manheim. “Our team has aggressively evolved the Manheim online marketplace to match the changing needs and wants of our customers. OVE allows our customer 24/7 access to the largest inventory supported by the best operations team in the industry!”

With this year’s Platinum Award win, Ally SmartAuction not only earned Double-Platinum status but also continued its streak as the only provider to win an award in the category every year since the inception of the Dealers’ Choice Awards.

“It’s a great tribute to our team to receive a Dealers’ Choice Award for the eighth consecutive year,” said Steve Kapusta, vice president of Ally SmartAuction. “We are proud of our relationships with a number of key consignors which help to keep SmartAuction fresh, and we’ve added links to transportation providers, vehicle history reports and valuation guides to enhance the dealer experience. It’s an honor to be recognized by Auto Dealer Monthly for these efforts.”
