Not everyone gets approved for DealerELITE. To maintain the integrity of DealerELITE, tell us what you will have to offer once a dealerELITE member?
There is a wealth of knowledge in this industry and due to the competitive nature of the car biz, we rarely have an opportunity to share our suggestions, knowledge and successes with others in our profession. After ten years as an F&I Manager, I realized that the best learning resources were within those professionals practicing their skills and techniques every day in the field, presenting their products, overcoming objections, and closing sale after sale. This is a perfect opportunity to converse with other automotive professionals.

Future F&I Office - No More Paper!

Posted on June 9, 2010 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

When I started reading this article I was agitated, thinking that electronic deal jackets, electronic signature pads, electronic document archives and electronic transmission of forms to lenders and vendors was a step towards reducing the F&I Manager's responsibility to a clerk. As I continued reading though, it became clear that the future (paperless) F&I office has been developing over time and based on the reliance of electronic convenience today, it's inevitable. With less time…


Women are the major purchasing influence

Posted on March 19, 2010 at 4:29pm 0 Comments

This is a great article that outlines the huge influence women have in making purchase decisions, cars inlcuded. Several quotes within the article come directly from Ford excecutives and are based on extensive research by the company. For example:

"Statistics prove...Women are directly responsible for 45 to 50 percent of all new vehicles purchased in the U.S, and they have a direct influence of up to 80 percent of vehicles they don’t purchase ..."

Hello and thanks for adding me as a friend! I appreciate your kind words. I just wanted to say hi and answer your questions. May I give you a brief introduction to who I am and what I do. But first I would like to hear from you as well and help your business grow. If I had someone who was interested in your service, what would you like me to say?

My name is Fred Slabine, and I’m president of Automotive Training & Development. I’ve been in the automotive industry for more than 35 years I founded ATD because I wanted to give back to the industry that has treated me so well. I enjoy assisting our dealerships accelerate their sales and profits, while also giving our trainees the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to make a great living selling vehicles and serving customers well.

Briefly, ATD provides recruitment and sales training services for automotive dealerships, as well as for marine, RV, and motorcycle dealerships. We train both new hires and seasoned veterans, because we know that even experienced salespeople need a boost from time to time. Like most training companies, we teach the key steps to a sale, but we also focus on other crucial topics like building trusting relationships, actively listening, maintaining a positive mental attitude, smiling and making others smile, and engaging in continuous learning. If you want to learn more about our philosophy and services, please check out our website at www.automotivetraining.us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail or call me. I would like to hear from you as well.

Thanks in advance for your interest. I look forward to chatting with you soon.

Best regards,

Fred G. Slabine
