Ask any dealership owner what the most challenging aspect of running their operation is, and they’ll start talking about their finance department. Our finance departments are made up of complicated paperwork and legal technicalities, but they’re also one of our biggest opportunities for sales. This is why finance manager training is so important.
At ADI, we strive to empower your managers to become masters of automotive finance. After completing our program, they will not only be wizards with all of that complicated paperwork, they’ll also be your new secret sales weapon.
Here’s what every dealership owner needs to know about finance manager training at ADI.
Starting at the Top: Improving Your Bottom Line
We’re starting with what’s on everyone’s mind. It can be challenging to make a living operating an automotive dealership. There’s a lot of moving pieces in this financial puzzle. However, there’s one area of dealerships that we consistently see owners and managers overlooking.
Dealerships often treat their finance department as a technicality. This is where paperwork gets shuffled around and nothing else. However, that’s a misconception that could be costing you money.
Your finance department is one of your strongest assets when it comes to improving your sales. Your sales staff out of the dealership floor have the challenging job of making the initial sale, but it’s the finance department in the back that closes the deal.
Giving your managers and expertise of automotive finances is going to allow them to become your strongest resources when it comes to sales. With this training, they can shore up one of the areas where you’ll be able to make considerable improvements in your profits.
Get Your Managers Trained Quickly Online
Automotive dealerships are currently faced with plenty of challenges regarding mobility restrictions and physical training.
We’ve adapted our entire program to change with our times. We now offer a full online course. The managers at your dealership will be able to enroll in and complete our course without having to travel outside of their homes.
Completing their training online also prepares them for an increasingly digital world of automotive sales. As the technical aspects of finance, and the business of car sales itself, increasingly moves into the digital space this training gives them an extra edge against the competition.
Fill in Gaps in Your Staffing
We’ve seen countless dealerships reconcile the financial duties to under trained staff. This is more than a staffing issue, it’s one of the biggest limitations to your ability to turn a profit.
The role of the finance manager is something that can’t be replaced in any automotive dealership. Car financing has gotten much more complicated in recent years. It’s no longer viable to just place all of these additional duties on to your regular managers. Your dealership needs specialized training to ensure that every transaction goes off without a hitch.
Closing the deal is the most vital part of car sales. You want to make sure that the staff that are locking in that final transaction are at peak performance.
Empower Your Team to Improve Sales
The finance manager training at ADI gets rave reviews. Managers that have graduated from our program might have been able to grow their careers as well as improve sales at the dealerships they work at. One of the biggest benefits of this training is the empowerment that your staff will gain.
Finance manager training allows your managers to become well-versed in some of the most technically complicated aspects of automotive sales. After completing our training, they will never have to worry about answering a customer’s technical finance question correctly ever again. This gives them the knowledge they need to encourage sales without any interruption.
It also improves their confidence. We’ve seen countless students of our program graduate with a newfound zeal and energy for sales.
There’s nothing quite like the confidence one earns after completing a new challenge in their education.
ADI’s Track Record Aims Toward Success
At ADI, we’ve proven our track record for success. Our satisfied students have been able to advance their careers as well as push the envelope for automotive sales forward. We’re helping to create a new standard for what customers expect when they visit their local dealership.
Our success is your success.
The more students that we train to become finance managers, the more experienced car sales staff will be working dealerships throughout the country. This will help customers not only find the cars that they want, but also speak with qualified representatives who are able to walk them through all the technical, financial details of a sale.
This is a holistic approach to service that puts the customer first. Now they’re getting everything they need in one location rather than being shuffled around through departments and individuals.
Location, Location, Location
This is one of the oldest pieces of wisdom in any industry or business. Your location is one of the most key aspects and what you’re able to offer the community around you. That’s why we’ve situated our training center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Everyone in the Scottsdale area knows that the bread and butter of this community is automotive sales. Car and truck sales drive the local economy and have for generations. What better place to train your managers on vehicle finance?
When you send your managers to our physical location, they’ll be able to get first-hand training in one of the vehicle sale hotbeds of the country. It’s this kind of first-hand experience that makes for an unbeatable education.
Education Built on Cutting-Edge Technology
Your dealership managers are going to be trained in a cutting-edge facility. We distill this information through the latest technical standards for automotive finance.
All of this education is backed by our use of the most cutting-edge educational technology out there.
We replicate the finance department of a modern car and truck dealership. This is complete with customer credit reports, new and used vehicle inventories, as well as fully functioning workstations. Our students also use real databases that have them pulling up records and completing sales that are identical to the real thing.
It’ll be like they’re back home and doing real transactions at their dealerships.
