BALTIMORE, MD – XIGroup, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has received the National Independent Automobile Dealers’ Association (NIADA) Preferred Provider designation for its Web solutions designed to help independent automotive dealers sell more cars faster on the Internet. The preferred provider status applies to the XIGroup’s four core offerings, including Web site design, do-it-yourself inventory management, inventory marketing, and search engine marketing services.

Before awarding preferred provider status, NIADA conducts a thorough background check on each company, including an examination of financial statements and insurance records, and approves only suppliers that meet their exhaustive criteria. XIGroup is one of less than 20 companies to receive the designation to date.

XIGroup has been helping dealers sell cars on the Internet since 1998. In 2007, the company released Inventory Accelerator, a comprehensive Internet marketing solution that allows dealers to update inventory on third-party Web sites, as well as their own Web site, from one central administration panel. A friendly user interface makes uploading photos and vehicle specs easy and fast, and the application includes an eBay Motors interface tool that allows dealers to send vehicles to auction with a few simple clicks.
