May 30, 2012 - PRLog -- VinSolutions, a leading developer of web-based CRM and ILM complete dealership marketing solution software, is a Bronze winner in the 2012 Summit Creative Award competition in the Business to Business Trade Publication category for their “Be One with Your Customers” advertisement.  Winners are chosen from an international pool of finalists through rigorous evaluation criteria and blind judging process rewarding only those whose work exemplifies the best in its class.

The Summit Creative Award recognizes and celebrates the creative accomplishments of small and medium sized advertising agencies and other creative groups.  Over the eighteen years, the competition has established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence and has become a coveted honor worth touting.  Entries in twenty-three major categories and across twenty-two countries are judged against a stringent set of standards. During the blind judging events, Judges search for innovative and creative concepts, strong executions and the ability to communicate and persuade.

Sean Stapleton, VinSolutions’ Chief Sales Officer said, “‘Be One’ has become more than just a tagline to describe the VinSolutions product,  philosophy and internal culture; it extends to the way our automotive dealer customers are able to do business through our fully-integrated platform to truly understand and engage their own customers in a partnership approach.” He added, “VinSolutions replaces multiple automotive vendors with one system.  They become one with VIN through our technology and singular commitment to make sure they are, in turn, one with their customers.”

“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment. The combination of scrutinizing judges and tough judging criteria ensures that only deserving entries receive Summit recognition,” said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards. “What a year to see creativity bounce back from the doldrums, and with such strength.  Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the run-off for the top spots was inspiring.”
