Agreement Allows Dealerships to Execute RouteOne Contracts on Reynolds’ docuPAD Flat-screen Workstations
DAYTON, Ohio – Dec. 8, 2014 – The Reynolds and Reynolds Company and RouteOne today announced a new agreement to integrate RouteOne’s eContracting system with Reynolds’ docuPAD® software, which will provide dealerships with the capability to efficiently capture electronic signatures for vehicle financing eContracts directly from docuPAD workstations and send them to RouteOne.
Previously, finance and insurance (F&I) managers switched between applications and technology to sign RouteOne contracts and other related documents. This new functionality between docuPAD and RouteOne eliminates a cumbersome process and allows F&I managers to execute contracts and other ancillary funding documents in one place, integrated with the entire vehicle sales process in docuPAD.
“Signing RouteOne eContracts along with vehicle funding package documents on a docuPAD screen allows for a smoother eContracting process in the dealership’s F&I office,” said Jon Strawsburg, vice president of Product Planning at Reynolds and Reynolds. “The new integration streamlines the electronic signature process and helps ensure better accuracy and compliance tracking. It also will provide a more consistent experience for consumers and a more transparent interaction, both of which can lead to better customer satisfaction.”
“We’re pleased to extend our relationship with Reynolds by integrating the RouteOne eContracting system with docuPAD, which will enable dealers to electronically transmit funding package documents from docuPAD to RouteOne, eliminating the need to fax them,” said RouteOne CEO Mike Jurecki. “RouteOne’s goal has always been to provide a seamless, complete solution to accommodate the F&I process for dealers and lenders, and the new integration with docuPAD helps both RouteOne and our customers move closer to that goal.”
RouteOne is a leading provider of automobile financing system solutions for dealerships and finance sources. Their eContracting solution speeds the funding process, reduces errors through automated contract data validation and improves the overall consumer experience. It is an integral part of the RouteOne platform that also includes credit applications, online retail services, compliance tools and open integration.
