Just like the concept of the four square and first pencil helped dealership personnel explain financing details to potential buyers with paper and writing utensils, the latest solution from Darwin Automotive is using some of the same fundamentals while leveraging current technology.
This week, the F&I software provider announced the release of a next-generation tool for its users nationwide, U-Draw. During the vehicle financing process, the company explained users can now draw on, mark up and circle items on mobile devices anywhere in the world; at the dealership, at home, or from any location.
Just like using a paper menu, Darwin Automotive explained its tool can improve communication with the customer as the user can now circle payments or talking points, helping the customer quickly understand their choices and points of discussion.
U-Draw combines the best of the mobile and digital world with the feature functionality users have in the paper world, according to Darwin Automotive.
From a compliance standpoint, the company said once the user is done selling F&I products, all the drawing, underlining and circling disappear, and the consumer then signs electronically. U-Draw can be used in a multitude of different ways including home deliveries, in store, virtual F&I offerings, and online digital retailing.
“Auto dealerships use the Darwin technology platform to deliver a personalized, effective customer experience and to rate, contract and remit F&I contracts electronically,” Darwin Automotive chief executive officer Phillip Battista said in a news release.
“Our dealers have always been able to connect to customers anywhere in the world remotely,” Battista continued. “However, a technology that combines paper and digital has never before been used in F&I — this is a first.”
Darwin currently operates in all 50 states with more than 5000 dealerships nationwide enrolled in the company’s F&I software.
“We are thrilled to release U-Draw to our customer base as a value add for no cost to aid them in selling more F&I products. U-Draw will redefine the concept of paper meets digital. We aren’t just talking about the future of F&I; we are delivering in the present,” Battista went on to say.
