ORLANDO, Fla. — MenuVantage announced it has incorporated a no-cost Red Flags Rule compliance solution that is seamlessly integrated into its menu-selling software and embedded into the sales process.

MenuVantage's Red Flags Rule solution is an automated compliance solution that can help protect dealerships from claims, fines and litigation.

The solution provides electronic best practices to create turn-key "good faith" compliance programs that increase protection, reduce liabilities and help mitigate identity theft in accordance with the FTC's Red Flags Rule, officials indicated.

The Red Flags Rule mandates that dealers implement an identity theft prevention program by Nov. 1, 2008.

"As MenuVantage now integrates with 13 DMS providers besides Reynolds and Reynolds and ADP, there is virtually no franchised dealership in the U.S. and Canada that cannot benefit from this solution," pointed out Philip Battista, MenuVantage's co-chief executive officer.

"Our solution is a simplified, streamlined path to help dealers conform to the FTC's Red Flags Rule and is another illustration of our commitment to dealers in providing industry-leading technology and solutions in the F&I Office," Battista added.
