Although eContracting has been around for a long time (we have been entering into electronic contracts for years at department stores and grocery stores every time we sign a signature pad), financing or leasing an automobile through the use of an electronic contract is still a relatively new experience for customers and dealers alike. 

In the beginning, it seemed it was only the captive finance sources who explored the realm of eContracting. Now finance sources small and large are considering eContracting, too, and many are on the verge of participation! This change is being driven by evolving consumer expectations, dealer demand, and the security and efficiency benefits eContracting offers to finance sources.
