Vehicle Acceptance Corporation and PassTime are announcing the launch of a coordinated effort to jointly market PassTime’s Starter Interrupt and GPS devices and VAC’s Cash and Service Solutions.
“Combining the products and services of PassTime with the financing options of VAC makes a very strong offering to the Buy Here Pay Here Automotive Market,” stated Frank Jacobsen, President and Chief Operating Officer, PassTime. “We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with VAC.”
In advance of the Joint Marketing Agreement with PassTime, Vehicle Acceptance has opened a new office in Carmel, IN, expanded its Corporate Headquarters in Dallas and increased the size of its Phoenix branch office.
