AutoStar Helps Independent Auto Dealers Prepare for the Future of BHPH at the 6th annual Innovate Conference 6

Fort Worth, TX – August 1, 2013 – AutoStar Solutions, a provider of software technology to the independent auto industry, has announced their 6th annual Innovate conference September 22-25th at the Omni hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. Since 2008, AutoStar has hosted the Innovate conference as a way to train independent auto dealers in practical techniques and prepare them for the unique challenges of the BHPH industry.

“At last year’s conference, our goal was to intensify the product training for our users and help attendees gain a better understanding of the compliance issues that were affecting the industry,” said Allen Dobbins, President and CEO of AutoStar Solutions. “This year, we’re expanding the scope of our industry-focused classes in the same way that we improved our technology training last year. As part of this initiative, we’ve recruited some of the top industry thought-leaders to share their ideas and help give our attendees a sizable return on investment.”

AutoStar has announced several changes from the previous year’s event, including new tracks and sessions, which will focus on areas that are vital to independent auto dealers, including collections, capital, inventory, sales, compliance, and more.

“As with last year’s event, AutoStar has recruited some of the top legal experts in the industry to cover relevant legal issues and their inevitable effects on the business,” said AutoStar Chief Legal Officer, Steve Levine. “The centerpiece of these compliance sessions will be the mock trial, which will help to bridge the gap between in-class learning and the real-world.”

In addition to these new tracks and sessions, Innovate 2013 will also include several industry-focused panels, providing a platform for attendees and panelists to discuss various approaches and solutions to the day-to-day challenges that confront independent dealers.

“We’re updating every aspect of this year’s Innovate conference to ensure that attendees are prepared for the challenges that they will face in the coming year,” said Dobbins.

Innovate 2013 will host appearances and keynote discussions from several key players in the industry including Chuck Bonanno, of The Leedom Group, Brent Carmichael of NCM Associates, Keith Haggler of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association, and many more.
