Two of the industry’s compliance leaders, gvo3 & Associates (gvo3) and DealerSafeGuardSolutions (DSGSS), have collaborated to deliver the first comprehensive front end compliance platform. This effort provides the first end to end solution, incorporating education, certification, execution, inspection and remediation. As dealers continue to struggle balancing the regulatory demands of consistency and perfection with the market demands of speed from the consumer, manufacturers, and sales force, shortcuts and errors are a fact of life. These missteps can cripple a business. This platform mitigates these risks.
Doug Fusco, CEO of DSGSS says “Gil and gvo3 have been the gold standard for years. Their compliance consulting, auditing and training continue to be best in class. Now with this new platform, dealers will be able to leverage these benefits to enhance and most importantly, “maintain” their compliance standards. For years dealers have searched for the “glue” to hold their policies and procedures together in a consistent manner.
Even after best efforts to enforce their investments in strong training and education, there is no guarantee employees consistently behave as instructed, creating this ongoing liability for the dealer. This platform will eliminate these risks”.
Mike Brosin, Managing Partner for Crest Auto group and a client of both gvo3 and DSGSS, states “We take our gvo3 audits very seriously, as they provide us valuable insight and direction into how we can improve and protect our business and our clients. We hold the record for the highest gvo3 score in the group, and DSGSS is the driving force behind that success”.
Steve Goodman of RML Automotive Group says “After we installed DSGSS, our next gvo3 audit score increased by 38 points”.
“One of the frustrations our clients share is the challenge with their staff consistently behaving as instructed after training, or after our audit review and consultation. With turnover, today’s competitive market, and the typical chaotic environment we operate under, this continues to become a growing challenge and liability to the dealer. With DSGSS in place those frustrations are eliminated, and the training leads to more consistent results” says Gil Van Over, President of gvo3.
Gil is also the Executive Director of Automotive Compliance Education (ACE). This firm provides compliance training and industry certification for everyone who touches a deal, from the Sales Person to the Sales, F&I and Office Managers. Certification curricula are also available for Office Clerks and Compliance Officers. “A dealer needs to certify more than just the F&I Manager and the training must be topical. ACE provides that topical training and industry certification.” according to Van Over.
This collaborative partnership will be officially unveiled at this year’s NADA convention. Experts from both companies will be available daily at the DSGSS booth # 5839.
