What are the top 3 F&I compliance services outside Red Flags and Customer Information Security that dealers need? KPA (www.kpaonline.com) provides HR, OSHA and EPA services and wants to add more F&I services to our portfolio.

An effective Leader is one who never compromises his or her position, keeping in mind ones' moral and ethical obligation to socieity, thier country, family and most importantly to the people who operate under ones leadership. Leadership encompasses many facets of skills, but intregrity & loyalty coupled with empathy in my opionion are strong traits of good and effective leaders.
Comment by Dale Livingston on July 1, 2010 at 11:12am
Hello everybody I am trying to find anybody that is using Virtual Lending and can give me some insite on the pros and cons of them. They seem to have a good program on paper but as we all know from past business ventures not always what looks good is good. I'm just looking for some kind of feedback because the owner is very tight with his advertising $$$ and I a having to operate on a very low budget I need to be able to make every penny count.

Thanks all,

Dale
