Mike Elliott replied to Mike Elliott's discussion I'm asking for feedback from Dealership Managers:
"We're providing a modern method for payment processing, so ideally I try to meet the Controller. They see the benefit and savings. If it's a small independent dealer, I want to speak to the Owner."

I'm sure you expect your sales people to make calls and find ways to engage with prospective customers.Here on the Vendor side we're that 'shoe on the other foot' since we face the same situations and challenges as your sales people.We need to get to know Dealers and find out if what we offer might be beneficial for them.
