What is Provider
Exchange Network?

Provider Exchange Network –or PEN—is an electronic data exchange that streamlines the sales process by integrating the F&I Product Provider with the Dealers’ point-of-sale system. PEN connects the Provider to a network of Dealer Systems including DMS, Menu, and Specialty Applications.

The Industry wants and needs eContracting and PEN enables Dealer adoption through unmatched, flexible integration.

How Does PEN Work?

PEN connects many aftermarket Product Providers to many Dealer System Providers.

We focus on the relationship between the Product Provider and the dealership’s preferred Dealer System Provider (DSP). DSP is a broad term for the software used by Dealers to promote the sale of aftermarket products. These systems include the DMS, Menu, and Specialty Applications.

PEN standardizes data between hundreds of systems to make eContracting easier and traditional methods obsolete.  Our Integrated eContracting technology eliminates the need for:

X DMS Forms

X Portal Integration

PEN FUNCTIONALITY

The PEN technology enables seamless aftermarket product eContracting through electronic ratings, forms and contract origination, streamlining the sales and administrative process.

We help a Provider become more integrated into a Dealer’s workflow while PEN connected Dealer Systems enjoy the benefits of a more robust Dealer solution- without the heavy lifting.

eRating

eRating enables Dealers to use their DMS, Menu or Specialty Application to receive accurate, real-time aftermarket product eligibility and pricing from the Provider directly into their current software.

eContracting

Aftermarket product eContracting complements the Provider’s System by eContracting in the Dealer’s System. The correct forms are sent by the Provider to the Dealer’s System and are automatically registered in the Provider’s Portal.

PEN Services

We help Providers and Agents take full advantage of the PEN integration technology through eContracting educational and business support, and customized resources.

Who We Serve

PEN is dedicated to servicing 130+ Product Providers and Administrators, supporting aftermarket products such as VSC, GAP, and Tire & Wheel with integration to 30+ Dealer-based systems including the DMS, Menu, and Specialty Applications.
