Sagent Lending Technologies, a joint venture between Fiserv and Warburg Pincus that was previously known as Fiserv Lending Solutions, announced last week that its VehicleLinq auto account servicing platform has been integrated into AutoIMS.
AutoIMS is a technology service provider for the vehicle remarketing industry, and its platform connects commercial consignors, auctions and third-party providers.
The integration of the VehicleLinq and AutoIMS platforms is designed to help lenders remarket vehicles quicker and at a strong resale value, Sagent said in a news release.
Users can tap into the integrated dashboard to view data and photos of their inventory as it makes its way through the remarketing process.
“By integrating AutoIMS with VehicleLinq, we are creating a platform that not only speeds up the remarketing process, but maximizes the resale value on inventory for all our auto finance clients,” Sagent chief product officer Charles Sutherland said in a news release. “We have a common goal with AutoIMS, and that is to exceed market expectations today while innovating for the future.”
AutoIMS vice president of client experience Joe Miller added: “AutoIMS is pleased to welcome Sagent as a partner. This integration promises to advance our goal of connecting the remarketing industry in ways that add significant value to all constituents.”
It was announced last month that Fiserv Lending Solutions was launching a new brand identity known as Sagent Lending Technologies.
Auto Fin Journal senior editor Nick Zulovich spoke to Sutherland about that rebranding in the below episode of the Auto Remarketing Podcast.
Likewise, Cherokee Media Group president Bill Zadeits connected with Miller and retiring AutoIMS chief executive officer Mike Broe in March to talk about the company’s 20th anniversary, which it is celebrating this year. Their discussion can be found below.
