FARMINGTON HILLS — RouteOne announced Wednesday the availability of additional enhancements to its free Android app, including the ability to forward ‘sent’ applications to a new finance source, securely text message with supporting finance sources, get payoff quotes, and capture leads into the Lead Manager within RouteOne. This additional functionality will also be available for the iPhone in the coming months.
The additions enhance the base functionality of the app, which allows users to view and manage RouteOne deals and leads and request and view credit scores instantly, whether in the F&I office or outside the dealership. In addition to the Android app, RouteOne offers an industry-leading suite of mobile tools, including apps available for use on the BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, iPod and soon, for Windows 7 Phone. RouteOne.net is also compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android mobile browsers.
“This new functionality will allow our dealers to utilize RouteOne in an even more robust way than before,” said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. “Dealers can communicate more efficiently with their finance sources, allowing them to expedite the deal process. Our full set of mobile tools provides dealers the flexibility they require in servicing their customers, whenever and wherever they need to do so.”
The RouteOne app will be automatically updated for users who turn on the automatic update feature in their Android phone. Others will need to update it manually (dealers should look for the new RouteOne app on their update notification list).
Dealers may contact RouteOne Customer Support at (866) 933-0663 with additional questions.
