Driving sales is your #1 priority. But a host of compliance frustrations constantly distract your team from focusing on reaching their sales targets.

Spend Less Time on Compliance and More Time Selling Cars

Keeping up with changing regulations and compliance requirements to avoid fines, penalties and reputational damage. Cumbersome, manual HR processes (like onboarding, training or termination). Inefficiencies that reduce productivity and drive up costs. Are these bogging down your dealership?

Compli’s Workforce Compliance Automation platform removes these roadblocks by helping your dealership mitigate risk, meet your workforce compliance requirements, and streamline common HR processes – letting you spend more time driving sales.

Rob Cohen
We are a bilingual company. With Compli, I can produce a one-to-four page policy in both English and Spanish. This helps our employees understand what they are signing.
Felicia Taylor
Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Automotive
Now it's easy for us to ensure all employee requirements are 100% complete.
Christine Russell
We were one of the first companies to use Compli when it was introduced and we like to think of Compli as our main defense against potential liabilities.
Rob Caruthers 
Group Chief Financial Officer / Ricart Auto
I’m a big fan of the Compli Platform. It’s great for any business that has multiple locations to manage. When I came to Tricolor and realized the company already had 16 locations, as well as plans to move into California, I realized it was time to get our corporate compliance program and the accompanying paperwork under control.
Felicia Taylor
Director of HR / Tricolor Auto Group
Time is money and if we can free up four to five hours of time for each manager, that’s a significant savings that goes straight to our bottom line.
Christine Russell
Compli changes people’s lives. I truly believe all auto dealerships can benefit from the platform.
Christine Russell
With Compli’s Platform, it’s easy for us to ensure all employee requirements are 100% complete, or as close as reasonably possible.
Christine Russell
We now know that every employee has received and signed off on required information and as a result, our overall compliance activity is more secure.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
As we moved away from printing our own payroll checks and instead began using direct deposit, we found we no longer had a reliable way to communicate internal information, training and compliance requirements to employees. We could communicate with managers and track required training and compliance activities manually, but we still didn’t know if we were reaching each individual employee.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
We haven’t had one legal claim materialize since we began using Complí.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
We were one of the first companies to use Complí when it was introduced and we like to think of Complí as our main defense against potential liabilities. We have found Complí’s platform to be an effective way to standardize, document and track communication with our employees.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
Complí has helped save us in, what might have otherwise been, some sticky situations. 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. If we had still been tracking these compliance items manually, who knows if they would have been completed properly.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
Complí saves us hours of work, avoids process bottlenecks and makes me feel confident that all of our compliance obligations are being met.
Rob Caruthers
Chief Financial Officer /  Ricart Auto Group
With Complí’s platform, we can monitor, document and track paperwork, training, policies and procedures across departments and locations, with very little effort.

The Complí onboarding and training process is now a part of our culture. I can’t imagine life without it.
Scott Basinger
In the past, we would do a pretty good job of communicating when possible, but we really needed to find a central location to collect, gather, onboard and share news and requirements effectively across departments.
Scott Basinger
Before we had Complí, when someone started at our company they’d be given a packet of information from Human Resources. At the time, we had no way of knowing whether or not that new hire completed their required training and signed off on the correct policies and forms.
Scott Basinger
I’m a big fan of the Complí Platform. It’s great for any business that has multiple locations to manage.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
Before Complí, we kept our most up-to-date onboarding packet on a shared drive. This process just wasn’t efficient. Managers would save the packet to different locations and it would become outdated or we’d get a packet back with forms or signatures missing. We were constantly chasing paper and employees.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
With Complí we’ve saved over $1,500 in file supplies alone. Like any dealership, we have a great deal of turnover and would have to create the files, file them and then pull those files when the employee moved on or was terminated. Now, we don’t have to do any of that and I love it.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
Honestly, Complí is an HR department’s best friend.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
One of the best features of Complí’s Platform is the ‘Groups’ feature which is completely customizable. For instance, if you have a Bilingual Group in your workplace, you can assign Spanish employees to a Spanish-only Group and send just those employees policies that are written in Spanish, or even policies that only apply to bilingual employees.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
Complí has helped us with a number of unemployment claims. Through our documentation housed within Complí’s Platform, we’ve been able to show that we’ve followed a progressive disciplinary process and that, despite our outreach, employees failed to rectify their behavior.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
Additionally, we have meetings every week with our managers to ensure their employees are what we call ‘100% green,’ which means their teams have a 100% compliance rate within Complí’s drill down departmental reports.
Felicia Taylor
PHR Director of Human Resources / Tricolor Auto Group
By using Complí we were able to eliminate the termination claim and avoid fines. It’s been a lifesaver.
Scott Basinger
Using Complí we were able to find and deliver everything to the investigator immediately. Having the documents in one centralized location helped immensely. We had everything we needed in Complí – the signed forms, documentation that the employee had taken the training, eye witness accounts from other staff members – everything.
Scott Basinger
It’s important to have one location where all of your required documentation and trainings are kept. By using Complí we were able to eliminate the termination claim and avoid fines. It’s been a lifesaver.
Scott Basinger
For me, the most valuable piece Compli offers is the ability to track compliance and provide proof when someone’s memory fails them.
Judy Delgadillo
VP of Recruiting & Development / Shelly Automotive Group
Not only have issues dwindled to nearly zero, but also plaintiff lawyers are reluctant to take on any case once they see how much documentation we have in Compli.
Brad Preble
President / Carr Auto Group
Complí has become a key management tool for us in this very competitive environment by automating our workforce communication and simplifying our compliance processes.
