Portland, Ore. (1/21/2013) Complí®, the nation’s trusted provider of Compliance Obligation Management Software, is pleased to report that client Ricart Automotive Group saved more than $90,000 in 2013 using Complí’s cloud-based Compliance Obligation Management Platform. Ricart Automotive Group cites the automation of form tracking and distribution and increased efficiency in employee training as the factors that generated the most cost savings.

Located in Columbus, Ohio, Ricart Automotive Group is a new and used car dealer group that occupies more than 67 acres and employs over 500 people. For many years, Ricart Automotive Group delivered all critical employee communications, from company news to compliance notices, by printing information on check stubs. Then the company switched to direct deposit and overnight, their primary means of employee communication vanished.

“While we could still communicate with managers via email, and track required trainings and compliance activities manually, we had no way to confirm that our communications were reaching each individual employee,” said Rob Caruthers, CFO of Ricart Automotive Group.

Ricart Automotive Group went looking for a new solution. After an extensive review, they decided on Complí, a cloud-based Compliance Obligation Management Platform that allowed them to distribute, track and report on all of their compliance obligations from a centralized platform, as well as streamline employee communications.

“We have found Complí’s Platform to be an effective way to standardize, document and track communication with our employees. In fact, Complí has helped save us in what might have otherwise been some sticky situations,” said Caruthers. “On a few occasions we had employees report work place injuries, and then later claim they had never been properly trained on the right policies and procedures. Well, we simply went into Complí, and found their signed policies, procedures and training documentation – complete with time and date stamps. There was no room for argument.”

Complí has been so effective that Ricart Automotive Group now enjoys a 99% compliance rate for on-the-job requirements. In addition, the company reduced the average cost per compliance activity from over five dollars to one, saving the dealership an estimated $90K annually.

Caruthers explained, “With Complí’s Platform, we can monitor, document and track paperwork, trainings, policies and procedures across departments and locations, with very little effort. Complí saves us hours of work, avoids process bottlenecks and makes me feel confident that all of our compliance obligations are being met.”
