About Our Dealership Consulting Services

There’s a difference between getting by and going far. That difference is DCG Consulting. It starts with our founder, Dave Cantin, who has unrivaled industry experience, having run dealerships and brokered the second-largest dealership acquisition in U.S. history. We are the only player in the acquisition space that consults on dealer operations beyond the closing table. After our acquisition experts facilitate your deal, we won’t leave you to fend for yourself. In fact, we’ll provide a complimentary dealership insight analysis and consultation to get you started. Then, our acquisition and growth specialists draw on their 10-30+ years of automotive industry experience to provide innovative and customized business solutions to expedite your growth, increase your revenues, and help your dealership and legacy thrive.

Build a Cohesive Team

Operational excellence begins with your team. Your talented employees are the beating heart of your dealership – they keep everything running. By working internally with your staff, we design custom leadership training and employee recognition programs that increase confidence, motivation, and teamwork, boosting productivity and reducing turnover. Through manager and employee surveys, we assess your dealership’s greatest needs, then deliver creative solutions to address them. Stop operating as individuals and foster a close-knit team culture with DCG Consulting.

Establish HR Frameworks

DCG’s auto dealership consulting services can make your business a well-oiled machine. Consistent recruiting, hiring, onboarding and training services are the key to productivity and effectiveness. Let us take a look at your HR and performance management processes, and we’ll pinpoint areas for improvement, then develop initiatives that optimize your procedures. This doesn’t end after the hiring process either. We train our clients’ leaders as master coaches to elevate employee motivation and engagement. More engagement means better performance. Better performance means a healthy bottom-line. Our consulting services are the catalyst for it all.

Design Sales Methodologies That Work

How many sales strategies are floating around your dealership floor? If every salesperson has a different approach, it creates inconsistent customer experiences and dilutes your brand messaging. Every single employee influences sales, from the front desk to the service staff. DCG ensures brand continuity across departments, from sales to F&I to service and parts and everything in between. We develop purpose-driven sales strategies that work for your specific dealerships. Implement it and watch your brand solidify and your revenues increase.

Build a Winning Workplace Culture

Happy employees create happy customers and clients. Put your employee needs first. Engage them and motivate them. DCG will conduct and analyze dealership-wide surveys to help you better engage with your workforce and grow a workplace environment that fosters employee satisfaction and consistent customer interactions. Make a motivational, encouraging dealership environment part of your legacy by partnering with our consultants.

Secure Your Legacy

You’ve achieved operational excellence, but the work isn’t quite done yet. It’s time to define and establish your legacy. Our dealership consultants can create a comprehensive succession plan to plot your business journey, from current operations to future expansion. Equip your dealership to expand and thrive, and prepare your staff to take the reins after you retire.

Ready to take your dealership to the next level? DCG’s expert consultants can put you on the path to sustained success. We’ve helped countless companies develop custom solutions and achieve operational excellence, and yours can be next. Contact us to discuss a custom consulting package.
