RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. — Finance Express recently reported that OAG Indirect has entered an agreement to join its Web-based Dealer Management System.

OAG Indirect offers retail financing through a network of Credit Unions in 48 of the United States.

In response to the agreement with OAG Indirect, Dave Huber, president of Finance Express, said, "In the midst of an uncertain market, where lenders are scaling back programs, deactivating dealers or simply going out of business, Finance Express has succeeded in increasing profits and dealer loyalty. We have achieved this by enhancing and developing our ancillary products within the Finance Express Dealer Management System. Over the past several months we have introduced an exclusive and powerful lead program, integrated Route 66 Vehicle Service Contracts, expanded our dealer Web site products and added Manheim Market Reports to our existing vehicle valuation services.

"In addition, because we know the tools are only useful if our dealers know how to use them, we have created a comprehensive Web-based Dealer Training Center. Dealers have the opportunity to participate in nearly a dozen different 'Live' courses from 'Understanding Subprime Finance' to 'Selling Techniques for Extended Service Contracts,' all free of charge to Finance Express dealers," he highlighted.

Huber went on to say, "Finance Express also continues to research and explore new lending sources and programs and this exclusive agreement with OAG serves as a gratifying reward for those efforts. Credit unions have established themselves as the model of stability in the lending world. We are very excited to bring OAG's powerful network of credit unions exclusively to our Finance Express Dealers."

Jared Kasper, president and chief executive officer of OAG Indirect, stated, "The Finance Express platform is a great fit for our ongoing expansion and an obvious choice for OAG Indirect to deliver its cutting-edge finance products nationwide. We are excited about the relationship and look forward to reaching out to Finance Express dealers."
