Company Vision . . . . .
These passionate professionals had a Vision to make an impact on 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 Finance Manager and, in a timely manner, progress to Sales Associate. Thus, it became the only Organization in the Industry to provide Dealerships with access to relief services and/or permanent placements of professionally trained Finance Managers.
Expanded Services . . . . .
AFIE expanded its services to include: Training and Placement of Certified Finance Managers, Mobile Satellite Finance Office for smaller Dealerships, and a Systems Review Program to streamline processes within Dealerships. 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 various Dealerships. The Company is proud of the fact that in 2010, with SAL Industrial Alliance, a ground-breaking program was designed and created exclusively for British Columbia Dealerships. This full-service program is the first of its kind and is changing the way business is conducted in the Automotive Industry.
Continued growth . . . . .
AFIE has evolved into a proven entity in the Automotive Industry. It was successful in creating a template process that is suitable in all Manufacture’s stores. Dealerships across the Province have been retooled with its innovative programs and are now enjoying improved profits. AFIE has a keen understanding of what leads to success in the now strategically focused organizations which it assists ongoing. It found ways to address the Industry’s common problems of finding an easier way to access finance office relief coverage, staffing, and how to achieve more satisfying results in the main income areas for Dealerships. Its training programs have proven results! The Company is pleased to report that since October 2008, from its pool of Certified Financial Services Managers, many successful placements have been made for part-time, temporary and full-time employment in Dealerships throughout British Columbia.
The future is exciting . . . . .
The future is exciting and the possibilities are endless for AFIE. The Company’s Vision is to reach further and to take advantage of opportunities in other Marketplaces. There is no doubt that this enthusiastic Organization will leave its mark forever on the landscape of the Automotive Industry.
