It’s important to AMS that NCM is the pioneer in automotive 20 Groups and has leveraged its expertise working with franchise and independent car dealers to provide an industry-leading 20 Group program for Buy Here, Pay Here dealers.

NCM Associates, a leading provider of retail automotive 20 Group services, Education, Retail Operations Consulting and the originator of the NCM Benchmark® for Success program for automobile dealers, today announced a promotional alliance with Auto Master Systems, a leading dealership management software solution provider to the Buy Here, Pay Here (BHPH) industry. The joint promotion is designed to provide AMS clients an opportunity to attend and evaluate the merits of NCM BHPH 20 Group participation at little to cost to them. The offer runs through the end of 2011 and those AMS clients who take advantage of it will receive a $500 travel credit for each meeting they attend. The offer is valid for two consecutive meetings, for a total travel subsidy opportunity of $1,000 when booking the travel through NCM Travel Solutions.    

Brent Carmichael, Executive Conference Moderator for all of NCM’s BHPH 20 Groups, is excited about the possibility of the two industry leaders teaming up to expose more BHPH dealers to NCM Associates and its BHPH support programs, specifically NCM BHPH 20 Groups. “It is an honor to be endorsed by one of the industry’s leading software solution providers. Auto Master Systems has long supported the NCM 20 Group program and is an advocate of BHPH operations Benchmarking,” he said. “In fact, AMS was one of the first BHPH dealership management solutions providers to program a report export feature into its system to enable NCM BHPH 20 Group clients’ financial statement data to easily and securely be transferred to NCM each month.” Carmichael added. The data download feature is important for NCM Group members who regularly share and compare their operating performance results with their fellow members through an NCM Benchmark® composite.
