The PCG Spotlight Award recognizes the most exciting products at the automotive industry’s largest trade show, the National Auto Dealers Association (NADA) Convention. The 2013 NADA Convention was held in Orlando, February 8-11 with over 600 companies exhibited and over 1,500 products showcased.
The six products recognized with an PCG Spotlight Award are Dealer.com’s MyCars™ shopping cart system, Dealertrack’s Payment Driver™ eCommerce tools, Dominion Dealer Solutions’s DominonDMX™ ERP-Based dealer management software, DrivingForce’s Stealth Shopper™ mystery shopping service, Car-Mercial’s Video Ad Network, and AutoFerret’s AVA lead nurturing software.

MyCars™ gives stealth car shoppers tools to organize the cars in their consideration set. A consumer’s MyCars™ toolbar offers email alerts when car prices change on a car they saved or if a saved car is sold.
