IAS Product Rating and E-Contracting Capabilities Added to The Impact Group's FUSION™ Menu

IASThe Impact Group is excited to announce e-rating and e-contracting enhancements to the Fusion Menu for the full line of IAS products and services.

Using the Fusion Menu, finance managers can quickly and easily rate for all available IAS product plans.  Then, using a customized Fusion product overview and support tools, F&I professionals can illustrate the benefits and features of each option to the customer.  Upon finalizing the deal, Fusion allows the F&I manager to automatically update the DMS, print the selected contracts, and remit the deal information to IAS for processing. 

"IAS committed to the e-Contracting initiative in July of 2006 and we continue that push today. We are always excited to offer our varied warranty products through new and exciting technology portals, and the Fusion Menu fits within that strategy perfectly," said Matt Nowicki, Director of Information Technology for IAS.

"We are excited to offer this fully-integrated solution to our dealer clients.  IAS is a leader in today's aftermarket industry, and this is an important step in moving toward a more automated and proficient F&I office.  E-rating and e-contracting initiatives demonstrate the cooperative and forward-thinking nature of our partnerships, and a more efficient F&I process will ultimately increase profits and enhance the customer's dealership experience," said Mark Thorpe, President of The Impact Group.
