CHICAGO — Compliance firms gvo3 & Associates (gvo3) and Dealer Safeguard Solutions (DSGSS) have teamed up on a comprehensive front-end compliance platform that incorporates education, certification, execution, inspection and remediation.

The partnership will be officially unveiled at this week’s 2017 NADA Convention & Expo in New Orleans, where experts from both firms will be available in Booth No. 5839 to demo the new platform.

“Gil and govo3 have been the gold standard for years. Their compliance consulting, auditing and training continue to be best in class,” said Doug Fusco, CEO of DSGSS. “Now with this new platform, dealers will be able to leverage these benefits to enhance and, most importantly, maintain their compliance standards. For years, dealers have search for the ‘glue’ to hold their policies and procedures together in a consistent manner. Even after best efforts to enforce these investments in strong training and education, there is no guarantee employees consistently behave as instructed, creating this ongoing liability for the dealer. This platform will eliminate these risks.”

Gil Van Over, president of gvo3 and executive director of Automotive Compliance Education, added: “One of the frustrations our clients share is the challenge with their staff consistently behaving as instructed after training, or after our audit review and consultation. With turnover, today’s competitive market, and the typical chaotic environment we operate under, this continues to become a growing challenge and liability to the dealer. With DSGSS in place, those frustrations are eliminated, and the training leads to more consistent results.”
