FARMINGTON HILLS — The automotive financing online aggregator RouteOne announced Saturday the availability of its free BlackBerry app, available now for download from www.routeone.com/blackberry.
Using the RouteOne BlackBerry app, users may view and manage all deals and leads, whether in the F&I office, on the showroom floor, or outside the dealership. Dealers may view a condensed version of the Deal Manager, Deal Summary, and the Lead Manager, as well as request and view credit scores instantly.
The availability of the RouteOne BlackBerry app adds to RouteOne’s industry-leading suite of mobile tools, including apps available for use on the iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android. A Windows 7 Phone RouteOne app is also in development. RouteOne.net is also compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android mobile browsers.
“We want our dealers to harness the power of RouteOne whenever they need to do so,” said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. “The key to mobile applications is the flexibility they provide the dealer in servicing their customers, and our free suite of tools provides them that. Dealers can work the deal from just about anywhere, and this allows for an expedited sales process and increased flexibility in the F&I process.”
RouteOne was formed in 2002 by Ally Financial (formerly General Motors Acceptance Corp.), Ford Motor Credit Co., TD Auto Finance (formerly Chrysler Financial Services), and Toyota Financial Services to create a more streamlined credit application for automobile dealers and their customers. Providing access to more than 21,500 dealers in North America, RouteOne’s Web-based system allows automotive dealers to submit credit applications to the largest indirect lenders, request credit reports, and increase profitability with RouteOne’s free Dealer Reporting Suite.
RouteOne’s open integration business model also allows the dealer to integrate with their choice of a wide variety of best in class providers, including DSPs, CRM systems, F&I modules and menu providers. RouteOne offers dealers a common platform for all their credit application financing needs. More information is available at www.routeone.com.
