What People Are Saying

“I am so happy with the training that we have gotten from Proactive's Biz Dev University! Everyone in my store has been certified in the program including, and most importantly, all my managers. Our team better understands lead and process management and how to measure our success better than ever before.”


Dealer Principal - Preston Superstore

“Biz Dev University has been an absolute asset to our entire team. With a customer care department as big as ours it can get difficult managing the training needs of so many different people so having a tool like Biz Dev U to act as a sort of "training assistant" has been so helpful and the quality of the content is excellent”


VP, CEC - Holman Automotive Group

“We increased our sales by 28% and service by 24% just by getting our staff certified on the BDC Training Network. And, with reinforcement training from the real-time coaching alerts, we've been able to keep our staff performing at this level.”
