PDS Events Produce the Greatest Return on Investment and Provide Valuable Training! Explore more about what sets a PDS Staffed Event apart from the "Imitators"? Ability, Integrity and Results. Our Professional On-Site Sales, Management & Training Teams are the highest quality available and provide the Largest ROI.
Many Direct Mail Companies try to facilitate Staffed Events without having ever set behind a sales desk, or having run a successful Dealership. Yet they are going to train teams and show you how to sell cars? PLEASE! They make their money selling you advertising. They often make outrageous claims on ads and websites. Unlike our competitors, all PDS testimonials are backed by actual letters from Dealers.
"Staffed Events" are all about maximizing your store's profit, generating excitement, and training your staff to be their best by "raising the bar higher". Keep your name in front of thousands of prospects for pennies on the dollar. Ask us how.
PDS, Inc. is credited for developing and perfecting the Staffed Event Concept and was on the ground floor at the inception in 1997 with Peter Bond. PDS has conducted countless successful events for Dealers across the US and Canada for over a Decade.
A PDS Staffed Event is a Pay-For-Results five-day promotion held at your store. PDS sends a team consisting of a Team Leader, a Closer, F&I Manager and as many salespeople as needed to help run the event, close deals and train your staff.

What sets PDS apart from the competition?

Here's the Million Dollar Question:
If you were one of the top 1% talent in the country, who would you work for? The fly-by-night Super Sale company that gives you no training, no support staff and average pay with numerous Attorney General Lawsuits and Cease and Desist Orders?
Or the established industry leader that provides extensive training, the support of full time sales and marketing professionals, and the top pay in the industry?
PDS retains the most talented Sales & Training Teams because our teams are the highest-paid and best-trained in the industry. It's an investment in our most valuable asset, and it pays off for us and our clients.
PDS events are held every 30-90 days and generate an average of 40-70 plus units sold per dealership with an average gross of $4154 PRU and as high as $6231 PRU!
