National Automotive Experts to Connect to Provider Exchange Network for e-Contracting

TROY, Mich., September 22, 2011 – Provider Exchange Network (PEN), a division of Open Dealer Exchange, LLC, has announced it has launched an integration project with National Automotive Experts (NAE) to offer dealers the ability to electronically contract Vehicle Service Contracts and other F&I products.

"NAE is continually working to improve our process as a preferred dealer partner," said Kelly Price, President of National Automotive Experts. "PEN will simplify the F&I process by making it easier for the dealer to rate products and generate the right documentation. Our dealers will spend more time selling and less time on administrative tasks because the process will be seamless within the dealer's system." This connectivity enables F&I Aftermarket Product e-contracting directly from dealer software. Embedded into the system, e-contracting functions eliminate the need for the dealership user to access multiple applications or have to re-enter critical deal data in order to complete the transaction. PEN will directly connect NAE products to four leading menu software vendors. This same technology will soon be made available direct from the dealership F&I software from The Reynolds and Reynolds Company and ADP Dealer Services, Inc.

"NAE has a great presence in the industry and we see a lot of growth on their horizon," said Mark Virag, Managing Director of PEN. "PEN looks forward to being a key partner to support NAE business efficiency." PEN is an electronic data exchange that streamlines the sales process by integrating the F&I product provider with dealers' point-of-sale systems, whether through a menu or directly with the DMS. This unique integration approach eliminates the need for separate applications to enable eContracting for aftermarket products. Functions include electronic ratings, forms preparation and contract origination.
