Automotive News Recognizes UVeye as
"Fixed Ops Vendor of the Year" for 2022 in All-Star Awards
Amir Hever, UVeye’s CEO and co-founder, has received an Automotive News All-Star award for the company’s development of vehicle-inspection systems to improve customer service at new and used-car dealerships throughout the United States.
The Impact UVeye Has on its Partners
General Motors and Volvo this year announced plans to install UVeye technology at dealership service departments throughout the United States. In addition to GM and Volvo, other automotive investors in UVeye include CarMax, Hyundai Motors, and Toyota Tsusho.
Earlier this year General Motors entered into a commercial agreement with the company to explore the use of UVeye technology at GM dealerships throughout the world. In March, Volvo announced plans to equip its U.S. dealerships with UVeye’s automated inspection systems as well.
Automakers have been quick to recognize the importance of UVeye’s technology.
“We are on a journey to create the best customer-service experience possible and the implementation of UVeye systems into our dealership service lanes helps us do that,” said John Roth, GM’s global vice president, Customer Care and After Sales. “Providing real-time, consistent and accurate feedback to our customers will help us ensure that they get the best performance from their vehicles.”
Rick Bryant, vice president of Sales Operations for Volvo Cars USA, noted that UVeye provides Volvo dealers with “an extremely powerful tool,” adding that “It provides transparency, repeatability and results in a multipoint inspection. I don’t see a better solution anywhere.”
CEO Amir Hever’s Response to the Award and UVeye’s Future
“It’s truly an honor to have been recognized with this prestigious Automotive News All-Star award,” Hever said. “The real winners of this award, however, are UVeye’s dedicated employees around the world as well as our investors, automotive partners, and dealership customers.
“I specifically want to thank our partners in the U.S., General Motors, Volvo Cars USA and CarMax, for all of their support over the past year. Our growth in 2022 has been sparked by their investments in our technology.”
Hever noted that UVeye applications also have been integrated this year into major dealership management systems available to thousands of U.S. dealerships including Tekion’s Automotive Retail Cloud (ARC) and CDK Drive’s Fortellis Automotive Commerce Exchange.
UVeye has facilities in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Hever adds that the company will announce further expansion plans in the United States next year. UVeye already has formed strategic partnerships with a number of dealership groups, used-car auctions, and vehicle fleets.
