ARI recently honored five of its best-performing auction partners based on scorecard metrics such as days to sell, days to write a condition report, days to fund and days to pick up.
ARI added that the company changed its scorecard format by sending to auctions monthly and added a new metric for days to remove company logos and branding.
The auctions collecting honors included:
— Region 1 Northeast: Mountain State Auto Auction, a third-time winner
— Region 2 Upper Midwest: Missouri Auto Auction, a seven-time winner
— Region 3 Southeast: Dealers Auto Auction of Chattanooga, a first-time winner
— Region 4 Southwest: Houston Auto Auction, a third-time winner
— Region 5 West: ADESA Northwest, an 11-time winner
Partha Ghosh, director of vehicle supply chain and remarketing for ARI said, “We put high expectations onto our business partners and are proud of all of the auctions that have excelled at winning these awards.”
As a first-time winner, DAA Chattanooga general manager Doug Rodriguez added, “We are extremely honored to receive this award from a great business partner. Our team has worked hard to ensure that all of our customers receive the best service we can offer.”
