F&I Administration Announces SCS Auto Integration with The Impact Group

Chicago, IL - F&I Administration Solutions, North America's leading provider of software solutions for the administration of automotive F&I products is pleased to announce the launch of the integration of its SCS Auto administration platform with The Impact Group's FUSION menu.

This connectivity will enable dealers working within the FUSION menu to get accurate real-time rates for service contracts and other products that are managed within the SCS Auto administration system. Typically, finance managers have a short window of time to determine the best product mix at the best price for the customer. Leveraging the F&I Admin solution, the FUSION menu can be presented to the customer in seconds.

“It is industry knowledge that the less time customers spend in the F&I office, the more likely they are to buy additional products,” said David Trinder, CEO of F&I Administration Solutions. “The integration of our products significantly reduces the time it takes to present the menu, and therefore increases the likelihood of making a sale.”

“For our discerning clients, easy access and accuracy are expected in every component of our system. Having the ability to interface with F&I Administration Solutions' SCS Auto eRating service enables us to meet those expectations in exciting new ways, and for a much larger audience,” said Mark Thorpe, President, The Impact Group, Inc.

“The integration with the FUSION menu is part of our ongoing commitment to provide electronic connectivity to other systems for the benefit of our provider customers and their dealers,” continued Trinder. “More announcements will follow shortly as we continue to deliver to this strategy.”
