Pinewood SA celebrates a successful Pinnacle Partner Conference 2018!

We would like to thank everyone that attended our annual Pinnacle Partner Conference on Friday, the 26th of January 2018!

We spent the morning reflecting on our learnings from 2017, the value of customer retention and the importance of Pinnacle parameters to management.

Josh Bunyan (International Business Development – Pinewood Technologies) kicked off the afternoon session and provided us with first hand feedback around Pinewood’s recent international experience as well as Pinewood’s vision of internationalising Pinnacle.

Our keynote speaker Andrew Waggott (Aftersales Director – Pendragon PLC) began his career at Pinewood UK on Pinnacle and now heads up aftersales for the leading independent operator of franchised motor car dealerships in the UK. Andrew provided us with valuable insight into Aftersales and it’s true impact on the dealership.

The conference rounded up with Nick Baldwin (Pinewood Technologies) giving us a glimpse into the Pinnacle roadmap and the exciting new functionality we can look forward to.

For those that were unable to attend and would like to discuss a few of the agenda items, please do not hesitate to contact for more information.
