Volkswagen and Audi dealers that use Darwin Automotive’s digital F&I offerings potentially have some extra incentives to leverage.

This week, the  F&I software provider announced that through its preferred provider relationship with Safe-Guard Products International, Volkswagen and Audi dealers offering the Volkswagen Drive Easy and Audi Pure Protection suite of F&I products now can qualify for special pricing and fee reimbursement incentives when using Darwin’s digital F&I options to rate, contract, and submit their F&I contracts electronically.

Officials added that this relationship between Darwin and SGI also enhances the sales tools available when offering Volkswagen Drive Easy and Audi Pure Protection products within the Darwin application.

The companies went on to mention in a news release that participating dealers will also receive Darwin’s Documents on Demand for free, which can enable a fully virtual F&I experience to accelerate dealers’ success in the virtual space.

“We're excited about the new relationship with Darwin Automotive and anticipate Darwin's F&I software accelerating growth of the Drive Easy and Pure Protection products in the marketplace," said Don Berry, director, protection services and insurance at VW Credit.  

Darwin Automotive chief executive officer Phillip Battista added, “We are thrilled by this opportunity for participating Volkswagen Drive Easy and Audi Pure Protection dealers to improve their customer experience through the digitalization of F&I, allowing them to fully personalize options to enhance the purchase experience and improve dealer profitability.”

Darwin Automotive currently operates in all 50 states with more than 7,000 dealerships subscribed to its programs. Darwin said it delivered more than a half-million deals on its platform last month and is on track to deliver 6.5 million units for the year.
