It makes the managers' lives so much easier that they actually use it.
Overland Park, KS (Vocus) September 15, 2008
VinSolutions, a leading Web-based automotive software provider, today announced it has completed an integration with the RouteOne CAMS. As a result, VinSolutions' clientele have access to a point-and-click connection with RouteOne and their affiliated finance sources. An added benefit of this one click connection is the elimination of repetitive data entry.
"Having RouteOne integrated with VinSolutions makes for a much more efficient system. We don't have to waste time duplicating customer data or re-entering multiple car deal scenarios for F&I," said Todd Crossley, owner of Gary Crossley Ford. "It makes the managers' lives so much easier that they actually use it."
This ease of use is not accidental. RouteOne is committed to providing their dealers with the ability to efficiently submit customer applications to a variety of lenders. "Our integration with best in class providers such as VinSolutions promotes our open integration strategy, which is a key tenet of our dealer support model," said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. "The integration between RouteOne and VinSolutions offers dealers the solutions they need to streamline their sales processes and drive efficiencies."
The process is as simple as entering the customer information and deal specifics at the desk, and then clicking the "Push to RouteOne" tab in VinSolutions' MotoSnap CRM desking module. The dealer is then connected to the RouteOne platform via a secured HTTP interface free of charge. Using the S.T.A.R. format, created as an automotive industry standard for transferring data, dealers can feel confident that their vehicle and customer information is secure. The efficiency of this data transfer method speeds the sales process along.
"The desire for speed in automotive desking and F&I processing is intensifying," said Doug Kinney, CEO, VinSolutions. "This integration between VinSolutions and RouteOne addresses that need. Dealers can now assist their customers in making rapid and more informed financing decisions because of the immediate communication between finance sources and the dealership." Contact VinSolutions for more information about their MotoSnap CRM and the integration with RouteOne.
