Equipment and vehicle dealers and distributors face today an increase in competition, reduction in retail margins, decreased absorption rates and limited skilled labour markets. However, manufacturers expect even greater market share and customers have a growing expectation of great service.

Equipment and vehicle manufacturers consider dealer development a key aspect of their market development and market share success. OEM's know that a stronger and more prosperous dealer network is more willing and capable of making investments needed for market share growth and improved end customer satisfaction.

Our Dealer Development Services are an intensive effort to position the manufacturer for system-wide gains in market share.
