Frazer Computing is making sure its dealer management system can help buy-here, pay-here dealerships with two critical functions — potentially selling parts of their portfolio as well as texting with their customers.
Most recently, AGORA, a Texas-based provider of technology solutions for the financial services industry, on Monday finalized an integration functionality relationship with Frazer.
Through the integration with AGORA, dealerships on Frazer can have their loan information concurrently available on AGORA where they can securely select loan pools forbidding or financing from more than 60 finance companies that acquire loan pools or finance them on the AGORA platform.
The entire placement, bidding, and acquisition of loan pools are completed inside the AGORA platform, without exposing private customer data, transaction activity, and collection notes to outside parties.
AGORA founder and chief executive officer Steve Burke said, “By establishing this first of many DMS integrations, dealers can seamlessly and securely make their portfolios available for sale or financing — avoiding unsafe emails and data files.
“Data files will go the way of the dinosaur, Blockbuster, BlackBerry and any other companies that failed to recognize the need for innovation. Data files have been eliminated by the Frazer integration, and dealers now have more liquidity than ever before,” Burke continued.
Since its launch in April of last year, AGORA’s flagship loan exchange platform has rapidly evolved in the secondary market for auto loans, allowing buyers and sellers to publish and exchange loan data directly in an efficient and secure environment without the need for intermediaries or brokers.
“We are always working to deliver increased value to our customers. We believe this could be one of the most popular integrations we have ever added for our buy-here, pay-here customers,” said Michael Frazer, president of Frazer.
Burke shared that AGORA is honored to have Frazer as its first integration, and the AGORA development team is putting the finishing touches on integrations with other leading DMS providers.
Management expects that in the next few weeks AGORA will be fully integrated with DMS providers covering more than 75 percent of the dealerships nationwide.
Burke added, “Soon all dealers will be asking 'Does my DMS do this?’”
AGORA was created in response to the many friction points and inefficiencies that exist in the manner that auto loan portfolios currently trade – namely poor and inconsistent data, lack of transparency from the brokers that previously dominated the market and heightened regulatory concerns over unsecured transmission of personal consumer data.
“Our integration partnership between Frazer and AGORA helps create a seamless suite of products and services to dealers from loan origination through loans sales — creating speed, efficiency, security and liquidity benefiting the entire market,” Burke said.

And Frazer recently integrated with another BHPH dealership service provider.
