This separate, two-day in-person event kicks-off with keynotes from the Dealertrack DMS leadership team, and will feature instructive courses based by role (G/L, business office, and management). While the DMS Edge live, virtual training sessions in September are free, there is a registration fee for the in-person Atlanta event of $395 per person,.  There is a group discount of $250 per person for groups of five or more. Space will be limited for the live DMS Edge event.

“The DMS Edge series creates a one-of-kind experience to connect with and help our dealers innovate and grow their business by unlocking and expanding the power of their DMS,” said Candy Lucey, Sr. Director Marketing for Dealertrack DMS. “We are always looking for open, honest questions and feedback from our clients on how to make the DMS experience better, and these sessions will provide the perfect opportunity for those interactions.”

Keynote speakers for both the virtual and in-person events include Dealertrack DMS and Cox Automotive leaders Paul Whitworth and Jim Roche, Division Vice President of Marketing & Managed Services, Xtime (a Cox Automotive brand). The event series will also feature an intimate dealer panel discussing current challenges and opportunities with DMS utilization.
