Accelerate2Compliance Expands Access to Information Security Compliance Solutions

New partnership is bringing information security compliance within reach for more dealers by uniting the specialized expertise of A2C with the performance solutions of NCM.

FTC information security compliance leader Accelerate2Compliance (A2C) announced the expanded availability of its dealership solutions under the company’s new partnership with NCM Associates.

“As a dealership leader, success requires attention to every aspect of your operation, including the increasingly important matter of information security,” said Paul Faletti Jr., president and CEO of NCM Associates. “We at NCM are proud to add A2C’s best-in-class FTC compliance expertise to our suite of professional development and consulting services offered to our dealer clients.”

Information security has become an increasingly prominent factor during recent years among dealerships, which store substantial amounts of sensitive customer data. Particular interest in the subject has been spurred by the FTC’s new Safeguards Rule, which requires relevant businesses to follow stringent information security protocols.

“Customer data is central to every dealership, and with so much of this sensitive information being managed day-to-day, it’s crucial as a dealership leader to equip yourself with trusted information security expertise,” said Greg Pfleider, CEO of A2C. “We are proud to be a resource for dealers on their journey to FTC compliance through our collaboration with NCM and do our part to help make automotive a stronger, more secure industry.”

Serving dealerships across the automotive, heavy truck, marine, powersports and RV categories, the A2C program is built to help dealers install complete and technical FTC safeguards and related solutions. The A2C roadmap assists with identifying information security compliance risk, implementing policies and procedures, delivering ongoing training and testing, and assessing vendor vulnerabilities.

“With so many daily priorities vying for dealers’ attention, learning how to comply with complex regulations can feel like a daunting challenge — which is why we’re bringing information security compliance within reach for more dealers by uniting the specialized expertise of A2C with the performance solutions of NCM,” Pfleider said. “Supporting the success of dealership professionals is a shared mission between A2C and NCM, and it’s because of this common goal that our companies are joining forces to provide even better value for dealers.”

Additional information on how dealers can protect their businesses from information security compliance risks with A2C is available at www.accelerate2compliance.com. Information on management training, 20 Groups, Consulting, Benchmark Reporting and Software Solutions from NCM is available at www.ncmassociates.com.

Adding further challenge is the fact that over half of lenders and dealers report that payment terms are negotiated with the online customer before a lender decision.

A new snapshot survey of auto dealers and lenders, from automotive fintech innovator eLEND Solutions, reveals that 90% believe that AI-based pricing is contributing to inaccurate online payment quotes which, the vast majority say, is having an adverse impact on the buying experience.

Other key obstacles to delivering accurate online payment quotes, cited by survey respondents, include a reduction in lender transparency, mistimed and mismatched desking/lender decisions, and reliance on consumer-provided credit scores, all of which are contributing to payment quotes that are anything but “penny perfect.”
