AutoNation Names DuPont’s ProfitNet Technology of the Year

AutoNation, Inc., America’s largest automotive retailer, named DuPont’s ProfitNet Management System the Technology of the Year at its recent annual Vendor Recognition Awards banquet. DuPont is the sole supplier of paint refinishing products for the AutoNation dealerships. ProfitNet has been implemented in AutoNation’s collision centers throughout the country.

In presenting the award, Laura Payne, director of purchasing for AutoNation, said that ProfitNet “will position AutoNation as the industry leader in collision repair.”

“DuPont has partnered with us in a way that no other company has,” Payne said, citing an “exceptional comprehensive program they developed exclusively for AutoNation. This management system will allow us to do more accurate estimating, have standardized reports and at the end of the day, operate more productively and profitably.”

Accepting the award for DuPont at the ceremony in Fort Lauderdale were Howard Wehnes, national accounts manager for DuPont Performance Coatings and Ervin Clark, DPC National OEM/Mega dealer group manager.
