No impact Pre-Qual provides users and dealers with detailed credit profile information while not impacting the customer credit score.

First Approval Source, the premier financial service provider, trainer and consultant to Marine, RV and Power Sports dealers, announces general availability of its “Pre-Qual” program to ensure, in cooperation with its dealer partners, the ability of customers to see what level of loan that they are qualified for without impacting their credit score. Customers can complete a simple form with just their Name, Address, Phone Number and Email (no Social Security or Drivers License) and see if they will qualify for a loan.

Relying on its technology heavy approach to providing F&I services and solutions, “Pre-Qual” from First Approval Source (provided by Drive-It-Now) flows from electronically submitted on-line “Get Pre-Qualified” forms. The results from these submissions are immediate and let both the dealer and the customer know how their credit stands relating to financing their purchase.

“90% of the time we get solid returns that we can work with,” explains Jeff Backus, Vice-President at First Approval Source, “Pre-Qual is a great program for both customers and dealers. We know up-front exactly what a customer’s credit profile looks like With that information we are able to help direct both the customer and the dealer to a unit that is best suited to the customer’s lifestyle choices.”

The ”Pre=Qual!” program is coupled with First Approval Source’s “First GlanceSM”, which delivers dealers a leading indicator of the probability of financing success and process duration for each buyer within minutes of receiving a Credit Application and before it has been submitted to a lender.

Adds Myril Shaw, Chief Operating Officer for First Approval Source, “Our mission is to deliver F&I excellence to our dealer partners and their customers. Not every dealer, nor, for that matter, every dealer’s customer has the same appetite for speed over finality, so we work with our dealers to use these programs in ways that best satisfy the demographics of their client base. We are excited to be delivering services that can meet the requirements and desires of all of our dealer partners and their customers.”
