    When DealerTrack launched its eContracting product in late 2002, it was sought with disbelief by most dealers.

    The speculation process of a paperless F&I patter would be scary and no one believed that digitally produced signatures on contracts would be used by Customers and especially Banks.

    Over years, when I worked at DealerTrack I had become a part of the country’s premiere Web based platforms for the automation of auto financing, tripling their customer base.

    It connects over 20,000 dealers, which includes 80 percent of new franchised dealers, and over 200 financing lenders, among them 20 of the largest independent automobile financing sources.

    Im happy to see that Route One is going to launch this and see the success now being a current lender myself.

    This will really expedite Route One process with the Big 4..i.e. Ally, Ford, TD, and Toyota.
