Honda, Lexus, and GMC Earn Top Honors with Vincentric Best CPO Value in America Awards

Bingham Farms, MI (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

The inaugural Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards were announced earlier today, with Honda and Lexus earning awards for best value passenger car brand and luxury brand, respectively. GMC captured the best truck brand award, edging out sister brand Chevrolet. At the manufacturer level, General Motors and Toyota topped the list, with their brands earning a total of eight Vincentric CPO awards for each manufacturer.

The Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards are vehicle specific honors that determine the best value certified pre-owned model in each segment. Using a statistical analysis, the company identified the Vincentric Best CPO Value in America winners by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price.

“The Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards recognizes the efforts manufacturers have put into quality improvements. These improvements, supported by strong CPO warranties, provide value to buyers of certified pre-owned vehicles,” stated David Wurster, President of Vincentric. “When a great vehicle is combined with a great CPO program, more and more consumers will consider a certified pre-owned vehicle. These results demonstrate that the increasing awareness and management of total cost of ownership by manufacturers is paying dividends in this expanding market,” he added.

Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. Each CPO vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus DC assuming each has been driven 15,000 miles per year, with the expectation that they will be driven an additional 15,000 miles per year over the coming five years.

Further information regarding all of the winners of the 2013 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards and the Vincentric methodology is available at http://www.vincentric.com.

Robin Duke-Woolley

Founder and Senior Analyst, Beecham Research

Robin Duke-Woolley is one of the best-known and most respected names in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, with over 20 years experience as an analyst and consultant in telecommunications. Beecham Research combines successful business experience, and extensive analysis expertise in both research and consulting practices. The company operates globally and has research partners in many parts of the world.

About M2M Now:

Machine to machine communications offer a bright but challenging future

At face value, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications are simply devices sharing data in a wired or wireless network. For over 20 years, they have been mainly one-to-one connections, recording events at remote locations such as changes in stock levels or temperature. That was then, this is now.

Today, many communications service providers (CSPs) are excited by the possibilities of huge growth in traffic serving every business and social sector, from telematics that monitor vehicle performance and update in-car software, to smart meters advising providers of the utilities consumed, to controlling secure site access, to healthcare providers checking remote devices such as dialysis machines or even pacemakers.

M2M networks already support a wide range of applications (47.7 million wireless connections worldwide in 2008, according to Berg Insight, and expected to reach 187 million by 2014). These applications are growing to include: critical health provision, transaction reporting (car parks, train tickets, toll roads, vending machines), and low value, low frequency service updates (such as industrial monitoring). M2M can present widely differing challenges in business models, technologies, implementation and support.

In the first global magazine of its kind, M2M Now explores the evolving opportunities and challenges facing CSPs, and we pass on some lessons learned from those who have taken the first steps in next gen M2M services.

???? How should you plan networks for new and unproven services?
????How can telcos provision the SIMS, and number the vast quantity of devices involved?
????How do you price and charge for such varied services?
????Where should intelligence reside, in the device, the network or the cloud?
????How do you guarantee the quality of service levels needed for life and death data?
????Which operators are most active in new M2M services, and what has it taught them?

M2M Now covers all industries using machine-to-machine communications (fixed line & wireless)

for business-to-business users and consumers connected devices. These industries include: automotive, education, energy & water utilities, fleet management & telematics, healthcare, manufacturing, retail & vending, security & access control, telecoms, smart cities, and transport & logistics. It also features Board-Level Interviews (in print and video) with executives from Network Operators, M2M Service Providers & Aggregators, Technology Enablers & Vendors, and Corporate End Users.

Leading Gap Insurance Specialist http://www.car2cover.co.uk confirm clarification of the Market Value Myth


Hertfordshire (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2013

For many motorists, the undefined phrase “we will pay the Market Value” within their motor insurance terms and conditions has given a great deal of cause for concern and doubt. To help understand and clarify this phrase, industry experts http://www.car2cover.co.uk have published a useful clarification.

In the event of a motor insurer declaring a write off, the policyholder is normally entitled to receive a settlement payment equal to the Market Value. Contrary to what some commentators and policyholders might suggest, Market Value is not defined by the insurer and as such is not the concern some would have us believe.

According to Tom Barley, a spokesman for http://www.car2cover.co.uk Market Value is never clearly defined in a motor insurance policy and yet the Financial Services Ombudsman are very clear about how insurers must calculate theMarket Value of a vehicle in these circumstances.

The Financial Services Ombudsman (FOS) who preside over a variety of disputes, expect all insurers to calculate ‘Market Value’ by reference to fully independent and impartial means and have published these guidelines to eliminate any ambiguity. See http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/publications/technical_notes/motor-valuation.html#5.

The FOS require insurers to establish and make a Market Value offer by reference to three motor and insurance industry price guides:

1. Parkers Guide

2. Glasses Guide

3. CAP value market manager

As such the policyholder can be confident that it is not the insurer who decides upon the ‘Market Value’ but a recognised independent and impartial industry guide supported if necessary by ombudsman enforcement.

The insurer is however entitled to adjust the recommended Market Value for mileage, condition and non standard fittings – but those adjustments are expected to be reasonable and in line with the price guide recommendations.

If an insurer makes an offer that appears to be a mistake, the policyholder is entitled to challenge it and if necessary refer it to the Financial Ombudsman. Its never been an issue for us when clients make their corresponding Gap Insurance claims, but if a policyholder wishes to challenge an offer they can said Barley
