The Keys to Making it Work
DDA works because it's strength is controlled by you -- the dealers.
The key is solidarity. The more dealers that participate in the program, the greater the rewards. Individual dealer savings are determined by the cumulative usage of all the member dealers. What's more our programs will detail your expenses and your savings to enable you to have better understanding of your expenditures -- to better run your business.
Quality Vendors/Supplier Management
Recognizing the long-standing relationships that many dealers have with vendors, it is imperative that all DDA vendors consistently deliver the highest quality products, with the most responsive service, at the lowest possible price.
Therefore, DDA has conducted exhaustive searches in securing the vendors for the program. We have exercised strenuous due diligence in researching those vendors to ensuring that they meet with our quality and service standards. Also, DDA conducts the negotiations to lock in the most favorable pricing for DDA Members.
