Compliance Management Solution
Don’t be held legally liable for an avoidable mistake.
Compliance management made simple, comprehensive, and easy.
Yes, the CFPB expects to see a Compliance Management System in every dealership.
Created by attorneys specializing in dealership defense, the RoadVantage Compliance Management System (CMS) offers a simple and effective way for dealers to address this need. But not just any collection of compliance-related tools will do: A satisfactory CMS requires written policy documents, verifiable training on those policies and the laws applicable to each job description, a track-able complaint resolution system, and periodic review, revision, and written reports via third-party audits.
Customized Policy Templates
In order to provide greater value to dealerships, RoadVantage makes available several dealership policy templates including:
- Employee Handbooks
- Sales Policy
- F&I Policy
- Fair Credit Policy
- Information Security Program (Safeguards Rule)
- Identity Theft Prevention Program (Red Flags Rule)
These templates may be customized by specific dealerships to suit their particular situations, subject to review by local counsel. Consulting on the policy documents is included in the scope of this proposal.

Policy Deployment & Verification
The RoadVantage CMS provides a paperless means of deploying dealerships’ policy documents. Each such document is “hung” on the dealership’s unique and branded webpage within the CMS. Every employee is prompted to open the relevant documents, and cannot move forward in the program without verifying that the document has been read, understood, and that the employee agrees to be bound by its terms. The system creates a record of the event; which is archived and can be accessed and tracked through a variety of reporting configurations.
This customized legal compliance training program that educates dealership employees and installs verifiable processes, helping protect dealerships from class certification and punitive damages. Topics are arranged by the job description most likely to need that particular training, as follows:
- General Employees
- Sales Associates
- Sales/Desk Managers
- F&I Managers
- Accounting Office
- Service Department
- Parts Department

Third-Party Compliance Audits
Third-party compliance reviews are an important part of any compliance program. Our 3rd party partner is a nationally recognized Sales and F&I compliance consulting company providing audit services since 2001.

This helps to protect dealerships against potential fraudulent practices litigation.
