These passionate professionals had a vision to make an impact in the automotive industry. The foundation of the company plan was to incorporate training programs and system methods to develop top-producing finance managers and sales associates. The idea was to firstly launch training for the specific position of dealer finance manager, and in a timely manner progress to sales associate. As a result AFIE became the only organization in the industry to provide dealerships with access to finance office relief services, short term, long term, and/or permanent placements of professionally trained VSA certified finance managers.
AFIE expanded it’s services to include: Training and Placement of VSA Certified Finance Managers, Mobile Satellite Finance Office Services (Suitable for smaller dealerships on an as required basis) , and a Systems Review Program to streamline processes within dealerships to maximize profit and improve customer service. Most recently, AFIE unveiled its new “Professional Sales Associate Certification” training program, incorporating a first-rate interactive course. This step-by-step sales approach underlines the importance of achieving a balance between an individual sales associate’s performance, and customer service satisfaction for all manufactures in a variety of dealerships.

Dealerships across the provinces of British Columbia, and Ontario, have been retooled with its innovative programs and are now enjoying improved profits.
