Albany, N.Y. – September 19th, 2016 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems announced today that its dealership management system (DMS) is fully integrated with QuickScreen from 700Credit, a prescreening tool that allows auto dealers to instantly access customers' credit profiles, right from within their CRM. Auto dealers using Auto/Mate's Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) and 700Credit's consumer credit reporting and compliance products will benefit from the convenience and increased customer satisfaction that the integration offers.
"Having access to a customer's credit information before the deal means the salesperson doesn't have to ask intrusive questions, which increases customer satisfaction," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. "The QuickScreen button is now visible in our CRM and with a simple click, a customer's credit information can be pulled and saved into that record."
"With QuickScreen integrated into Auto/Mate's CRM, salespeople no longer have to jump in and out of applications, which significantly speeds up the sales process," said Ken Hill, Managing Director of 700Credit. "If you're trying to reduce your store's purchase time from four to two hours, or even one hour, a prescreening tool is a must."
With just a name and phone number, QuickScreen performs a soft pull on the customer's credit data. No social security numbers or date-of-birth are required. A soft pull does not register on the customer's credit report as an official credit check, so there is no adverse affect on their score. However, to stay in compliance 700Credit does send the customer a firm offer of credit informing them they have been pre-qualified for a loan.
Auto/Mate's CRM, Customer/Mate, is a comprehensive CRM solution that allows dealers to track prospects, respond to internet and OEM leads, plus create and implement all the follow-up plans needed to connect with customers. Customer/Mate also has CarFax®, AutoCheck®, and NADA Book Out® integrations.
