Fastlane Chooses F&I Express to incorporate VIN-Specific Vehicle Service Contract and Aftermarket Pricing in its Dealer-focused Online Car Buying Platform

Fast­lane Choos­es F&I Express to incor­po­rate VIN-Spe­cif­ic Vehi­cle Ser­vice Con­tract and After­mar­ket Pric­ing in its Deal­er-focused Online Car Buy­ing Plat­form

Fast­lane, the devel­op­er of an increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar e-com­merce plat­form for car deal­ers has cho­sen F&I Express to pro­vide VIN-spe­cif­ic vehi­cle ser­vice con­tract and after­mar­ket pric­ing. Fast­lane offers deal­ers an Ama­zon-like check­out process for con­sumers who wish to buy their car online. Savvy deal­ers are grav­i­tat­ing toward Fast­lane because of its flex­i­bil­i­ty, cus­tomiz­abil­i­ty and ease of use.
 “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.”
 
“F&I Express pro­vides a dig­i­tal con­nec­tion with more than 140 auto­mo­tive after­mar­ket prod­uct providers,” said Bri­an Reed, CEO of F&I Express. “Our part­ner­ship with Fast­lane is enabling deal­ers to shift the edu­ca­tion of F&I prod­ucts for­ward in the car-buy­ing process. The con­sumers want to have com­plete trans­paren­cy of F&I prod­ucts, so we pro­vide the tools they need to take con­trol of the process and dri­ve their research.”
 Fastlane’s plat­form enables 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.
 
Deal­ers have been very pleased that Fast­lane is much more than a cook­ie-cut­ter solu­tion. The car-buy­ing expe­ri­ence is cus­tomized to meet each dealer’s unique brand­ing, mes­sag­ing and sales needs. “We built Fast­lane know­ing that the online car-buy­ing process typ­i­cal­ly dif­fers from deal­er to deal­er and from region to region,” said Bran­don Hall, Fastlane’s CEO. “Our tech­ni­cal teams work close­ly with each deal­er to deter­mine how their online car buy­ing expe­ri­ence should work. Then we con­fig­ure it to their sat­is­fac­tion. It’s a win-win that makes online pur­chas­ing easy for deal­ers and their cus­tomers. Because of our part­ner­ship with F&I Express, deal­ers can be assured that vehi­cle, ser­vice con­tract and after­mar­ket pric­ing infor­ma­tion will be spot on.”
 
“The F&I Express team is very pleased to part­ner with Fast­lane,” said Reed. “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.”
