DALLAS — Dealer ecommerce platform provider Fastlane has selected F&I Express to provide VIN-specific vehicle service contract and aftermarket pricing. Fastlane was designed to give dealers an Amazon-like checkout process for consumers who wish to buy their car online.
“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.”
Fastlane’s platform was designed to enable 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, according to the provider.
“The F&I Express team is very pleased to partner with Fastlane,” said Brian Reed, CEO of F&I Express. “This new company is clearly — and quickly — going to have a significant impact on the way car dealers bring their inventory to the online car-buying world and we’re proud that Fastlane considers us to be a valuable part of their growing success.”
