Automotive learning and development agency relocates in order to drive growth

Word Worker press release

Automotive learning and development agency RTS Group has moved its team to larger offices to accommodate future growth.

RTS Group, based in Wiltshire, has relocated from its headquarters in central Chippenham to a new suite of offices in nearby Notton.

The company was set up in 1989 and has grown to a team of more than 40 in the head office, with over 200 associates around the Globe. It supports automotive manufacturers and dealers to develop their frontline staff – including dealer principals, sales, parts and service personnel – to become more effective and so create world-class automotive retailers.

RTS Group trades in the UK and extensively overseas, including Europe, China, the Middle East, and Africa, and counts among its clients brand names such as Mercedes-Benz, Mazda and Nissan. It has a highly successful finance arm, FIMTRAC, which supports dealerships to increase the take-up among customers of point of sale finance.

“We had outgrown our premises and for some time had been looking for a new location which better reflects our brand as a modern, global company, and also gives us the room we need to expand,” said managing director Malcolm Miller. “The world of learning has moved on and in addition to traditional classroom learning we use state-of-the art technology, including 3D animation and augmented reality, so it was important for us to find a new location which would give us superior facilities to produce digital learning and development programmes.”

The new offices are not only bigger, they are brighter and more airy to work in, and have a dedicated eLearning iPad set up station area, with bigger film studio.

RTS Group devises, designs and delivers a wide range of learning solutions which improve the knowledge, skills and performance of frontline staff at automotive dealerships. Methods used range from one-to-one and classroom learning, through to eLearning, using smart phones, tablets and online tools.

Last year, the company was the subject of a management buy-out, with the business owned and managed by the team of directors.
