United Dealer Training Adds Dealership Analysis to Annual Training Program23 Aug, 2011
Deerfield, IL – Aug. 19, 2011 – Dealers can measure and improve the effectiveness of their training programs with United Dealer Training’s (UDT) newest service, comprehensive sales force/dealership analysis.
The analysis is available as part of the “on-boarding” process for dealers that subscribe to one of UDT’s 12-month bundled training programs. This training includes education and coaching via online courses, webinars, instructor-led workshops, podcasts and private on-site training sessions. Through assessment interviews with owners and staff, the new value-added service pinpoints a dealer’s strengths and opportunities. Specific assessments include reviews of the dealer’s culture and values, leadership and sales effectiveness, creativity and innovation, customer service commitment and skills, team building and much more. The analysis draws from these individual assessments to deliver a clear outline and strategy for 12 months of highly-targeted training sessions to improve the dealer’s business.
“We’re always working on new ways to make our training more valuable for our resellers,” said UDT Manager Phil Barnette. “This new on-boarding service will be especially valuable to dealers who are subscribing to UDT bundles for the first time, but it is also a great resource for longtime UDT subscribers as they plan and update their annual training programs.”
UDT has provided a wide range of dealer training programs across the country for 16 years. “UDT’s hands-on training has definitely taken our sales staff to the next level,” said Larry Bridgeland, president of Mid-City Office Products in Rockford, IL. “We believe in and are committed to training with UDT.”
