BATON ROUGE, La. — Tracker Marine Financial Services recently announced it has selected AppOne to automate its finance process.

AppOne is a part of Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. Meanwhile, Tracker Marine Financial Services is an affiliate of Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Marine Group.

By applying the same technology and compliant loan documentation services it offers in the auto dealer market, AppOne said it will be able to help TMFS and its dealers automate indirect lending, credit approvals and compliance processes required for booking and funding boat loans.

Through this new marine financing platform, AppOne will be able to help TMFS simplify the finance process with dealers representing Tracker Marine Group brands. The brands are sold through more than 500 independent dealers, and are the exclusive brands of Bass Pro Shops.

"By automating the indirect lending process for Tracker dealers, we will be able to help them turn loans around faster, which ultimately will help them increase their service levels, retain more customers and sell more boats," said Toni Miller, vice president and chief financial officer at Tracker Marine Financial Services.

"The automotive finance industry can help serve as a model for marine financing when it comes to workflow automation and compliant loan documentation processes," said Lee Domingue, chief executive officer of AppOne.

"By leveraging AppOne's Web-based technology and compliance expertise, Tracker Marine Financial Services will be able to automate indirect lending and ease its compliance burden, helping strengthen its relationships with dealers and the lenders it does business with," he added.
