Atlanta, GA — Manheim Online Solutions customer relations director Amanda Savage will present “Secrets of the Modern Wholesale Auction” to attendees of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) conference in Orlando, FL next month. Presented as part of NADA’s “Vehicle Sales – Performance and Profitability” workshop track, Savage will explain how dealers can earn customers’ trust, and will offer tips designed to help dealers understand how a healthy mix of in-lane and online resources can help them maximize profits.
Drawing on her automotive industry experience, which includes a combination of dealership-side and remarketing industry experience, Savage is a valuable resource for dealers looking to introduce online buying and selling strategies to their remarketing programs. In her presentation, she will cover specifics like:
• the value of accurate condition reports,
• best practices for vehicle listings that sell,
• the key benefits of online wholesaling,
• details about online tools like Manheim Simulcast, and how they can effectively dovetail with existing in-lane programs.
“Amanda’s thorough understanding of remarketing from the dealer’s perspective has allowed her to effectively advise me on which tools, both in-lane and online, work best to help me increase my bottom line,” said DiAngelo Brooks, used car director, Duncan Automotive Group. “Given the turmoil the used vehicle industry has been through over the past 12 months, I’d urge every dealer attending the NADA conference to jump on the opportunity to hear what Amanda has to say.”
In addition to her responsibilities with Manheim Online Solutions, Savage serves as head of The Wholesale Institute (TWI), a traveling workshop powered by Manheim that teaches dealers how to use online resources to achieve profit goals. Frequently throughout the year, she takes to the road and hosts TWI seminars for dealers interested in familiarizing themselves and their organizations with the latest online remarketing tools and practices.
