Integrated Dealer Systems Customers Make Up More Than 50% of 2018 RVBusiness Top 50 RV Dealers

2018 RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Awards IDS CustomersIDS congratulates 26 of its customers that ended up winning this year’s RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Award.

Wake Forest, NC, October 25, 2018Integrated Dealer Systems (IDS), a leading RV, Marine and Trailer dealership software provider, is pleased to announce that 26 of the recipients of this year’s RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Award are IDS customers.

RVBusiness magazine and its marketing partner, BJ Thompson Associates, have scheduled the public ceremony honoring these top Canadian and US dealerships for November 7th.

It will take place at a gala awards reception during the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association International Convention/Expo co-hosted by the US Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association and RVDA of Canada on November 5th-9th at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel.

As we mentioned in last year’s RVB Top 50 announcement – and it holds true even more so today – we’re pleased with the increased recognition that these awards are garnering in both the US and Canadian recreational vehicle markets not only because of the commercial recognition but also the advertising clout that goes with it,” said RVB Publisher Sherm Goldenberg. “But, as many in the industry are well aware, it also provides a unique benchmarking tool for a wide array of retailers to examine their own operations and see how they measure up to industry standards and their own expectations on the brink of the 2019 model year.

For these and other reasons,” he continued, “we congratulate this year’s Top 50 dealers and look forward to seeing them all with their employees and families on stage in Las Vegas.”

Out of those 50 dealers, RVBusiness has singled out five “Blue Ribbon” honorees for their exemplary performances. Among them are three IDS customers – Affinity RV Service, Pleasureland RV Center and Wilkins RV. Another IDS customer, Burlington RV SuperStore, is set to receive the Arthur J. Decio Humanitarian Award sponsored by Wells Fargo CDF for excelling in charitable endeavors.

“I’d like to congratulate all of our customers, as well as all of the other award recipients,” said IDS General Manager Sean Raynor. “We exist solely to try and meet the dealers’ automation needs, and hopefully, we’re at least part of the reason why they’re on this Top 50 list.”
