A very special Northwest Ford Truck Association (NWFTA) meeting was held at the Boeing Flight Museum on September 22nd. This was the last NWFTA meeting of the year and once President Steve Renner, from Gresham Ford, led a large turnout of around 70 members, plus Steve Kettler, Ford Seattle Regional Manager, and Dan Belick, Regional Sales Operations Manager, through a short Business Meeting, a very unique evening of three presentations began.
Kathryn Schifferle, Founder and now Chief Vision Officer of Work Truck Solutions (WTS) walked the audience through an abbreviated history of why she founded WTS in 2012 to help dealers serve business customers better. Kathryn also offered sincere thanks to the members of the NWFTA for their support as WTS was just getting up and running. She also shared new technologies recently launched such as VAST (Vehicle Acquisition Search Tool) designed to help dealers find used commercial inventory to help their customers get through this difficult inventory time, plus EZOrder and CVShowroom which together offer business shoppers a way to view, select and order vehicles that are not in stock at their dealership.
