How Outsourcing Document Management Keeps Car Retailers Compliant

Outsourcing Document Management Keeps Car Retailers FTC Compliant

Automotive industry retailers know that staying in compliance with Federal Trade Commission Guidelines is a key feature of doing business. One of the most important steps to ensuring constant compliance with FTC guidelines is employing an effective document management system.  

FTC compliance automotive salesAutomotive industry retailers, whether in new car sales or used car sales, deal with sensitive customer information in many types of transactions. Receiving and storing credit card numbers, bank account information, identifying information or other forms of sensitive data is a part of most automotive industry professionals’ daily routine.  

Document management can quickly become a large-scale job for many automotive industry retailers. When document management tasks increase in scale, liabilities do too. More demands placed on in-house document management systems result in stretched storage situations or harder-to-maintain security. Outsourcing document management responsibilities to a professional document management business can eliminate the risks associated with strained in-house management practices and ensure consistent FTC compliance for automotive industry retailers – without sacrificing access to important data.
