GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF) today (Nov. 30) announced the launch of a new program with Spader Business Management.

Under the program, GE Capital is subsidizing a one-year subscription to Spader True, an online system that allows qualified recreational vehicle dealers in the U.S. to compare their business performance against industry benchmarks on a wide variety of financial metrics, according to a news release.

Spader True is an interactive system that provides a summary of more than 1,500 individual data points in a series of graphic displays, known as dashboards. It allows dealers to compare their performance on a wide variety of detailed metrics related to expenses, sales mix, and profit margins, by department, against industry averages.

“GE Capital wants dealers to have the best financial reporting and forecasting tools to grow their businesses,” said Pete Lannon, managing director-RV for GE Capital’s CDF business. “We are pleased to help make the new Spader True product available to dealers.”

Under the program, GE will pay 50% of the cost of a one-year subscription.

“Spader True contains live data that dealers can start using immediately,” said John Spader, president of Spader Business Management, in Sioux Falls, S.D. “Spader True provides a true measure of businesses performance to show where they are now, where they’re headed and where they need to be for a healthy organization. It was designed to be used by dealers and their management team so that, with one quick look, they can discover what’s working and what needs improvement.”

Dealers can learn more about the system by visiting the GE Capital booth (North Wing Lobby #24E) or the Spader booth (#94 or #308) Nov. 30-Dec. 2 at the 48th Annual National RV Trade show in Louisville, Ky.
