Portland, Ore. — The Puget Sound Automobile Dealers Association (PSADA) announced its alliance with Compli as it furthers the effort to expand use of its Dealership Handbook and bring innovative technology solutions to its members. The handbook, developed and maintained by PSADA and its legal counsel Ryan, Swanson & Cleveland, PLLC, will now be available to Compli clients who, as subscribers to the handbook, will access the information via the automated Compli Dealership Compliance Management System (DCMS). It is anticipated this new capability will be available to Washington dealers by early January 2008.
“One of our key roles is to help Washington dealers understand and manage their complex compliance and regulatory environment,” said Jim Hammond, executive director of PSADA. “We are very proud of the information we have long provided them via our employee handbook, and now to be able to provide that in electronic form and utilize Compli’s Internet-based platform to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its use takes the value to the next level. The Compli system has quickly proven to be a hit among Washington dealers, and to expand its use even further by adding our expert content further leverages this new technology.”
Compli recently announced its aggressive strategy to greatly expand the content available to dealers using its DCMS, and adding PSADA to that growing list of subject matter experts is another milestone in that effort. “PSADA has a tremendous reputation for focusing on the needs of its members and then developing and delivering solutions to those needs,” said Lon Leneve, Compli president. “This alliance is an example of that approach in that they are taking a valuable resource that they created and, by actively looking for new and better ways to leverage its use, they’ve increased the value to dealers. PSADA members taking advantage of this approach can get ahead of the compliance curve.”
