UDS Launches Online Training Platform


Clearwater, Fla. – United Development Systems, Inc. (UDS) announces the launch of its e-Learning platform for F&I Training.

Available immediately to any F&I Professional looking to create an advantage for themselves, this robust learning management system (LMS), located within UDSTraining.com, delivers its first course, Ethics and Compliance Certification, via an engaging online experience.

“Many years in the making, our e-Learning platform is a true game changer to the way F&I Training content can be delivered today. With subsequent courses in the works, we only thought it be appropriate to release Ethics and Compliance Certification first, given the importance of doing things the right way,” says Randy Crisorio, UDS President and CEO.

The Ethics and Compliance Certification course itself was designed directly from our printed/classroom material with the guidance of a team of instructional designers. The course was built to be as engaging as possible with video intro’s to each lesson, full voiceover utilization and complete with quizzes plus a final exam. A printable/downloadable certificate of completion is awarded for those that pass the final exam.

“Being a 3-time award winner in the Compliance Training category of the annual Dealers’ Choice Awards solidified our decision to get this course built and available to the masses,” adds Crisorio.

To now be honored with our 10th consecutive award is extremely gratifying,” says Randy Crisorio, UDS President and CEO. “While consistent and quality F&I Training has always been the cornerstone of our F&I Performance operation, I never sought, or expected, this type of national recognition. It is the dedication and commitment of the UDS Team that deserves all of the credit and our clients who value so highly our efforts that we give thanks and appreciation. Without each, this simply is not possible,” adds Crisorio.

AAGI Announces F&I Certification Courses for 2014


Schaumburg, Ill. – American Auto Guardian Inc. (AAGI) announced its 2014 quarterly course schedule. AAGI sold out the four courses held in 2013; new for 2014, the company announced the addition of two advanced courses being developed. The advanced course would last two days and build upon techniques introduced in the first level session.

AAGI’s Performance Services department, through its partnership with United Development Systems Inc. (UDS), will host quarterly first level courses, each lasting five days. The program will include a focus on presentation skills and techniques, lender relations and advanced management skills. Additionally, participants will engage in role playing and critiquing of their performance by UDS staff.

Jeff Teuscher, vice president of sales and head of AAGI’s Performance Services, said, “When we introduced the training program in 2012, we had no idea what the industry’s response might be. With each session being ‘sold out’ in both 2012 and 2013, we realize the necessity of providing such an invaluable tool to our agents and dealers. Gerry Gould of UDS is a remarkable presenter, giving attendees the knowledge and confidence to achieve higher levels of productivity in their career.”
