Along with sharing details about a new affiliate benefit program, Digital Recognition Network (DRN) handed out its annual awards to companies that have demonstrated excellence in the repossession industry.
During an appreciation dinner in conjunction with the 2019 North American Repossessors Summit, DRN highlighted that two affiliates tied for the National Affiliate of the Year Award, which recognizes excellence in repossession operations and performance throughout the prior year. The accolade went to Associates Asset Recovery and Specialized Towing and Transportation.
“We are honored and humbled to recognize this year’s affiliate award winners,” said Andy Cameron, senior vice president of fintech at DRN, which also is a member of the Auto Intel Council.
“Our affiliates serve as profiles in excellence within the repossession industry, and our award winners literally go the ‘extra mile’ to provide the license plate scans that serve as the backbone of our organization,” Cameron continued.
DRN also honored eight affiliates with Top Gun awards — regional honors that recognize the companies for their innovation and leadership within the repossession industry in their regions. Those honorees included:
Western Region Top Gun Award
Coastline Recovery Services
South West Recovery
Eastern Region Top Gun Award
Dezba Asset Recovery
Southern Region Top Gun Award
Hide and Seek Recovery
Midwest Region Top Gun Award
Connect 1 Recovery
Additionally, DRN launched what it’s calling the Elevate the Agent member benefit program. This program rewards affiliates who record at least 250,000 license plate scans per month with incentives to elevate their role in the DRN Recovery Circle and receive better benefits by scanning more license plates.
The company explained the Recovery Circle consists of multiple member tiers offering benefits ranging from hardware credits and discounts to free license plate recognition camera systems.
“We are excited to share the Elevate the Agent’ program with our affiliates,” said Jeremiah Wheeler, executive vice president and general manager of fintech at DRN. “It is important that our affiliates know how much we value our relationship with them and the work they do for us.
“This program is designed to demonstrate just that — and to provide key benefits that make their jobs — and hopefully, their lives easier,” Wheeler went on to say.
