Clearwater, Fla. — United Development Systems Inc. has been named the Diamond Award Winner in the F&I Training category of the Auto Dealer Monthly 2007 Dealers’ Choice Awards.

“We have worked long and hard to create an effective training regimen for franchised dealers and it is terrific being recognized for our efforts. But three years in a row is awesome,” said Randy Crisorio, UDS president and CEO.

This is the third year Auto Dealer Monthly has recognized the most highly regarded vendors, suppliers and finance companies in the retail automotive industry as voted on by dealers and dealership personnel. The survey provided dealers and their employees the ability to offer their collective selection of the top providers to the retail auto industry.

Overall, 40 companies, all chosen by dealers and dealership personnel, were named winners in 19 distinctive categories of products and services, with nearly 3,500 votes cast per category. Ratings were gathered on the performance of the product or service, as well as the customer support and service from the provider, and the overall value compared to cost to the dealership. The complete list of winners, as well as any provider or finance company that rated higher than the group average score in any category can be found at .

UDS has held the top spot in the Finance and Insurance Trainer category for three consecutive years, making the company a Triple Diamond winner. UDS is one of only four companies that have reached Triple Diamond status.
