ELMHURST, IL - Shortly after quitting their job, a former employee of a dealership decided to take a vehicle home as a parting gift. The 2021 GMC Acadia was believed to have been stolen for over 30 days. In fact, other employees reported to the dealership managers that the vehicle was parked in the thieve’s driveway before it was officially reported.

For the dealership managers looking at their process, what are your steps to reduce liability and hold your team accountable with keys? When an employee quits or is terminated, how do you ensure there isn’t access to the key system or vehicles anymore? The KeyMaster has settings per user that allow expiration dates on employees, to ensure a user doesn’t have access after a certain period, especially if they are no longer working at the dealership.
