FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, RouteOne LLC introduced FinanceConnect, a new product designed to help dealers quickly convert online vehicle shoppers into F&I customers.

FinanceConnect offers dealers a customizable credit application microsite that allows them to meet and engage their customers where they are – online. It also allows dealers to quickly and efficiently manage and track customer leads and broaden the reach of their credit application pipeline. Dealers will have the ability to include credit incentives, vehicle specials, and other promotional materials within their custom microsite. Designed to provide dealers with a robust and fully integrated online consumer shopping experience, the application also offers videos and tips to help the consumer understand the requirements needed to apply for financing.

Dealers utilizing a CRM product or third-party website provider may continue to use these tools with FinanceConnect, as RouteOne is integrated to several CRM providers in the industry. The application is also compatible with tablets, allowing dealers to facilitate the customer's completion of the application from anywhere at their dealership.
