IDS Customers Make Up 48% of 2019 RVBusiness Top 50 Dealers

WAKE FOREST, N.C., Dec. 23, 2019 -- Integrated Dealer Systems (IDS), a leading RV, Marine and Trailer dealership software provider, is proud to announce that IDS customers make up 48% of the recipients of the 2019 RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Award.

The Elkhart, Ind.-based trade journal and its partner, BJ Thompson Associates, honored this year's top US and Canadian dealerships at a public ceremony on Nov. 13.

The ceremony took place at a gala awards reception during the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association International Convention/Expo, the industry's leading RV dealer event co-hosted on Nov. 11-15 by the US Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) and RVDA of Canada at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

According to public relations executive BJ Thompson, the selection process was exceptionally intense this year, as a panel of industry experts had to go through an unusually high number of applications nominated by RV manufacturers.

"This year's panel of judges were about as intently engaged as we've ever seen in completing their evaluations and final selections," said RVBusiness Publisher Sherman Goldenberg. "There were some dynamic debates among the judges regarding the dealer finalists, and understandably so, when you consider the increased quality of the applications reflecting a new age of retail professionalism. We saw evidence of dealers not resting on their laurels of past performance but placing additional emphasis on service technician training and pressing for even higher levels of customer satisfaction.

"The judges clearly had difficulty getting the list down to just 50 selections and, unfortunately, some previous recipients didn't make it in. Having said that, we do have a list of outstanding Top 50 dealers for 2019."

Out of those 50 dealers, RVBusiness has singled out five "Blue Ribbon" honorees for their exemplary performances. Among them are two IDS customers – Little Dealer Little Prices and Sicard RV. Another IDS customer, Pleasureland RV Center, received the Arthur J. Decio Humanitarian Award sponsored by Wells Fargo CDF for excelling in charitable endeavors.

"Congratulations to all of our customers and the rest of the award recipients," said IDS General Manager Sean Raynor. "It's exciting to see so many of our customers succeed at what they do, and hopefully, our dealership management system helps support their growth and operational capabilities."
