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 Platinum Award Winner for “Compliance Training” in the 2020 Dealers’ Choice Awards by Auto Dealer Today.

For the sixteenth consecutive year UDS has been ranked tops in the F&I Training category. “Our commitment to F&I Training has never been stronger,” says Randy Crisorio, President and CEO of UDS. “Ensuring our Dealer Partners are equipped with the resources and skills they need to adapt and excel in today’s marketplace was a big focus for us. We added boot camps, additional webinars and virtual coaching meetings to continue propelling F&I results,” adds Crisorio.

This is the 6th award for UDS in the Compliance Training category, which was added six years ago. 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.

About the Awards Process

This is the sixteenth 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.

CLEARWATER, FL — UDS Adds Innovative Vehicle Sanitizing Product To Its Lineup!

UDS is announcing the immediate addition of a vehicle sanitizing product to its current lineup of top-tier products. This innovative product features hospital-grade (very effective) sanitizing for vehicles of all sizes. This eco-friendly product has been designated as a Level 1 Skull & Crossbones solution which is considered to be food-safe. No other product meets these standards.

Application
The application process takes a mere 2-3 minutes, and can be performed by anybody available…it really is that easy. The application process uses an applicator to fog the inside of the vehicle with the air conditioning on and set to recirculate to ensure all ducts and vents are treated as well.

Safety
This product has been EPA registered and certified, including an “Emerging Pathogen” designation issued by the EPA. We aren’t aware of any another product that is able to make this claim. Other products have proved to be very caustic and require additional safety gear to perform the application process.

Demand
WE recognize products such as this are in high demand and many companies are experiencing delays in shipments or complete backorders. Rest assured, UDS has a very large supply of both product and applicators.

Cost & Shipping
The cost for this product is $371 per gallon of concentrate, which yields 13 gallons of useable solution to treat over 200 vehicles. The Tornador applicator is $85. The small average cost per vehicle is designed to make this a profitable product from the first application.

There is a nominal shipping charge applied to all orders.

Additional product details and up front ordering is available as requested.

Dear Friends and Business Partners,

In an effort to promote a socially responsible work environment during the Corona Virus / Covid-19 Pandemic, the majority of our teammates have transitioned to a work from home strategy.  The weight of technology plays a large role at this time as our corporate team has worked around the clock this past week to engage the work from home connectivity with protected technology.

In this realm, the Training, Coaching and Development efforts will be conducted online and all live sessions will be rescheduled at a later date.  A small rotating administrative staff will be available at UDS headquarters in Clearwater to support Sales, Underwriting and Business Processing.  Know that we are 100% committed to providing a seamless transition.

These temporary systems will remain in place until further notice. 

We wish you ALL a Healthy and Safe environment as we pass through this very difficult period.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Randy Crisorio
