On Monday, Budco Financial announced the integration of its 0% payment plan services into the entire suite of Darwin Automotive F&I software solutions.
Officials explained Budco Financial’s addition to the Darwin F&I and Service menus, digital retailing solution and the new follow up program for previously declined F&I protection, can enable dealerships to seamlessly present, rate and remit F&I products electronically with an interest-free financing option. The added integration can allow their joint customer base to deliver a more personalized, effective customer experience.
Dealerships using the Darwin system can now immediately present and sell vehicle service contracts using Budco Financial’s interest-free financing option. They no longer have to enter duplicate information in multiple sites, thereby saving time and reducing errors.
“Budco Financial provides a unique opportunity for dealerships to sell incremental vehicle service contracts without customers paying interest,” said Jeff Stafford, chief marketing officer at Darwin Automotive/Superior Integrated Solutions. “Their platform aligns well with our desire to provide an integrated shopping experience for consumers and helps support the existing F&I process.
“Now, our users can present the menu with a vehicle service contract included. If the product is declined for any reason, the F&I manager has a fast, easy and flexible option of presenting Budco Financial’s interest-free financing solution,” Stafford continued.
Budco Financial vice president of sales and marketing Mark Pierret added, “We are excited to have Darwin as an F&I menu partner. By integrating with Darwin, we can provide a vehicle service contract selling solution that maximizes efficiency for our dealerships and helps them generate incremental profit. Their knowledgeable team is dedicated to providing the highest level of service.
“In addition, they maintain a leading-edge retailing experience for F&I products,” Pierret added.
