Announcing the NCM-Rawls Dealer Executive Program
We’re debuting our newest education option, the NCM-Rawls Dealer Executive Program, at the convention. A joint-venture with The Rawls Group, this 10-month training course is specifically designed for dealers and their successors who want to create and maintain a family legacy. Visit the Rawls Group booth #3937 to talk with Kendall Rawls or the NCM Associates booth #4931 to speak with Brandiss Drummer to learn more. On the operations and expenses front, our Software Solutions team will be on-site to demo LiveAudit®, HealthCheck®, and axcessa®. If you haven’t yet seen these products in action, be sure to book a time to see how these cash flow, expenses, and operations tools can make managing your dealership easier and more efficient.
We’ve also brought back last year’s crowd-pleaser, the Ultimaker 3D printer! When you sign up for a demo or consultation—or stop by the booth—you can pick from our selection of three gifts. The video above shows a time-lapse of their production.
