DALLAS, TX, October 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fastlane, the developer of an increasingly popular e-commerce platform for car dealers, has chosen F&I Express to provide VIN-specific vehicle service contract and aftermarket pricing. Fastlane offers dealers an Amazon-like checkout process for consumers who wish to buy their car online. Savvy dealers are gravitating toward Fastlane because of its flexibility, customizability and ease of use.
"From the car dealers' perspective, providing accurate service contract and aftermarket pricing is imperative when offering an online buying option," said David Luce, Fastlane's Vice President of Sales. "Partnering with F&I Express lets car dealers using our platform incorporate F&I Express's superior vehicle service contract and aftermarket product information into their car buying process. Having accurate VIN-specific pricing online creates a better customer experience when the consumer takes delivery of their vehicle."
"F&I Express provides a digital connection with more than 140 automotive aftermarket product providers," said Brian Reed, CEO of F&I Express. "Our partnership with Fastlane is enabling dealers to shift the education of F&I products forward in the car-buying process. The consumers want to have complete transparency of F&I products, so we provide the tools they need to take control of the process and drive their research."
Fastlane's platform enables car buyers to purchase a vehicle directly from the car dealer's website and gives them an easy and complete checkout experience. The platform handles nearly all the tasks associated with the purchase process: Year, make, model, specifications and price information on each vehicle, warranty and service contract options, aftermarket product options, trade-in evaluations and accurate retail and lease payment information.
Dealers have been very pleased that Fastlane is much more than a cookie-cutter solution. The car-buying experience is customized to meet each dealer's unique branding, messaging and sales needs. "We built Fastlane knowing that the online car-buying process typically differs from dealer to dealer and from region to region," said Brandon Hall, Fastlane's CEO. "Our technical teams work closely with each dealer to determine how their online car buying experience should work. Then we configure it to their satisfaction. It's a win-win that makes online purchasing easy for dealers and their customers. Because of our partnership with F&I Express, dealers can be assured that vehicle, service contract and aftermarket pricing information will be spot on."
"The F&I Express team is very pleased to partner with Fastlane," said Reed.
