CLEARWATER, FL — United Development Systems, Inc. (UDS), a member of Brown & Brown Dealer Services, has been named the Diamond Award Winner for “F&I Training” and Gold Award Winner for “Compliance Training” in the 2019 Dealers’ Choice Awards by Auto Dealer Today.

For the fifteenth consecutive year UDS has been ranked tops in the F&I Training category. “Quality training operations offered via concise and convenient channels is critical in today’s fast-paced marketplace,” says Randy Crisorio, President and CEO of UDS. “It is the formal and informal training that provides a solid foundation allowing for performance and profit growth to occur. This award brings a feeling of validation to our team that we are upholding promises made to our Dealer Partners,” adds Crisorio.

The awards process itself began in 2005 and allows Dealers and dealership personnel across the U.S. to rate retail industry operatives of all kinds. UDS is one of very few companies to be recognized every year. A special ceremony will be held at Industry Summit this November in New Orleans to recognize the winners.

About the Awards Process

This is the fifteenth year Auto Dealer Today has held the Dealer’s Choice Awards, which recognizes the highest rated vendors, suppliers and finance companies in the automotive industry. The awards are based solely on the votes of those who use the products and services every day, namely dealers and dealership management. Respondents rated providers in four areas: 1) the quality of the product or service, 2) customer support and service, 3) the overall value, and 4) whether the dealer would recommend the provider.

“On behalf of the entire UDS team, we are excited to join and collaborate with the expanding Brown & Brown Dealer Services group,” Randy Crisorio said. “Brown & Brown continues to pick winners, placing the team at the spear of the F&I industry delivering dominant performance for dealer customers. This union expands our footprint and product offerings making Brown & Brown an excellent choice for franchise dealers.”
