Partnership ensures e-commerce services and support are coordinated and managed seamlessly between administration solution and e-contracting vendor.
TROY, MI August 29, 2011 – Provider Exchange Network (PEN), a division of Open Dealer Exchange, LLC, is pleased to announce that F&I Administration Solutions, LLC has successfully completed a PEN Certified Interface, allowing dealers to electronically rate, contract and register contracts for all providers using the SCS Auto administration solution.
“Our connectivity to any dealer system or menu will assist F&I Admin’s customers in increasing sales and managing all products in one system,” said Mark Virag, Managing Director of PEN. “PEN’s partnership with F&I Admin will also greatly benefit their customers by ensuring a coordinated integration and support of PEN-enabled dealer systems such as MenuVantage, and soon Reynolds & Reynolds and ADP DMS systems.”
PEN is an electronic data exchange that streamlines the sales process by integrating the F&I product provider with the dealer’s point-of-sale system, whether through a menu or directly with the dealership management system (DMS) desking software. This unique integration approach eliminates the need for separate applications to enable eContracting for aftermarket products. Functions include electronic ratings, forms preparation and contract origination.
David Trinder, CEO of F&I Administration Solutions, said “We are very pleased to have completed the PEN Certification. This connection further expands the reach of F&I Admin and continues with our philosophy of giving dealers every possible way to work electronically with providers.”
