Letter: Internet and auto sales

I am glad I met Subaru general manager Carroll Winkler on Saturday at his automobile dealership’s special event in Glenwood Springs. We had a good talk about his sales territory and the Internet influence on how he does business.

Talking with Winkler was like talking with Stephen Smythe, former president of Beverly Hills Ltd. Mercedes-Benz back in the 1990s and early 2000s. I mentioned Smythe’s name to Winkler.

Well, for Subaru and the other local car dealerships, Smythe probably can help them improve their sales success ratios and operations. He is the CEO of Market Scan Information Systems Inc. in Camarillo, California.

The company provides vehicle desking solutions for automotive dealers and lenders. This includes training services, retail and lease programs database, and manufacturing and regional programs.

I am certain the area’s automobile dealerships will “wow” their competitors by hooking up Smythe, who is legendary in the American auto industry.
