RESTON, VA (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
FrontStream Payments is further strengthening its presence in the automotive industry by partnering with AutoXplorer, a dynamic provider of software and hardware systems to over 1,500 used car dealerships in 35 different states. To enhance their customer’s automated business services, AutoXplorer is now bundling FrontStream’s payment acceptance solutions into their proprietary dealership management software.
“As FrontStream Payments continues to carry forward the strategy of integrating our payment acceptance technologies with leading software partners in the automotive industry, we welcome relationships with companies like AutoXplorer,” states Nina Vellayan, Chief Executive Officer and President of FrontStream Payments, “We’re excited to help AutoXplorer’s clients grow their dealerships through the savings, efficiencies and revenue generating opportunities offered through our joint software alliance.”
AutoXplorer’s car dealer management system gives dealers access to nearly everything they need to track customer sales, help lower expenses and drive revenue to their dealership. By adding FrontStream Payments’ gateway platform and payment processing technologies into the AutoXplorer arsenal of capabilities, dealers now have direct access to affordable, secure and fully compliant solutions for accepting credit and debit card payments. Other dealer management benefits include reduced reconciliation time, recurring billing, the elimination of redundant data entry, and the ability to take payment by phone.
In addition, the integration of FrontStream’s proprietary gateway platform offers dealership users automated batch reporting and integrated financial tracking for one-stop accounting views. Running transactions through the new solution will also ensure cardholder data transferred between AutoXplorer and the consumer is completely secure and PCI compliant due to state-of-the-art encryption and tokenization code built into FrontStream’s integration model. This feature greatly lowers security risks and minimizes the compliance vulnerabilities associated with accepting cardholder payments.
"We take our dealers' suggestions very seriously, so when they asked for credit card processing integration, we were happy to oblige,” said Mike Shahrestani, AutoXplorer’s Vice President of Marketing, "We know this integration with FrontStream Payments will make our clients more efficient in their payment processing and also save them time and money. Our “Buy Here, Pay Here” dealers can now spend less time on collections and more time on getting new accounts."
Soon, AutoXplorer will be enhancing their dealership management system yet again by adding eCheck (ACH) acceptance to their bundled payment solution. With eCheck capabilities, dealers can accept payments by processing a customer’s checking account information electronically. With this new feature, dealerships can save substantially on fees and receive electronic funding within the next business day.
AutoXplorer was founded in 1996 to serve used car dealerships with their need in computer hardware & software products. They offer three levels of their proprietary software, as well as a recently developed online solution for promoting independent dealerships on the web.
