Commonly Asked Questions

How do I reset my RouteOne password?

Your Dealer System Administrator (DSA) can reset your password. If the DSA is not available you may request a password reset via e-mail:

  1. Contact RouteOne Support at 866.768.8301 to reset your password, refer to the RouteOne Password Reset video, or follow the steps below.
    1. Click the 'Forgot Password' link on the User Login screen.
    2. Enter your User ID and e-mail address (Note: the e-mail address must match the address saved in your RouteOne profile)
    3. Click 'Submit' and an e-mail with a temporary system generated password will be sent to your email Inbox. Please note that a new temporary password can only be sent to a private email address. If your DSA has not set you up with a private e-mail address, or you have been set up with a shared e-mail address, the system will respond with an error message on the Password Reset screen. When you log on using your new temporary password (received via e-mail), you will immediately be taken to the 'Expired Password' screen where you will be required to immediately create a new password of you own choosing.
       

How do I enroll with RouteOne?

How do I create a new RouteOne user?

  • Your Dealer System Administrator (DSA) must complete this task.
    • Under ‘Admin,’ click ‘Users.’
    • On ‘Users Associated with this Dealership’ page, click on the ‘Create User’ button.
    • Enter all required information, as well as the appropriate permissions.
    • If this user has a Captive ID, enter it at this time.
    • A screen will appear stating ‘Dealer User Created Successfully.’ This will also provide the new user’s RouteOne ID, which the user will need (as well as the password that was just created for them) to log in to RouteOne directly.
       

How do I add/request a new finance source?

  • Your Dealer System Administrator (DSA) must make this request.
    • In 'Admin' tab, choose 'Finance Source' from the drop down.
    • On this screen you will see all the Finance Sources you listed in your initial Dealer Participation Agreement.
    • The Finance Sources will show the status of the connection. This is a key to determine where your connection stands with each Finance Source:
      • Active: The Finance Source is ready to receive applications.
      • Pending: The connection requested was accepted, but is still in the process of connecting through RouteOne (for additional details, call 866.768.8301).
      • Requested: RouteOne reached out to the Finance Source and received no response (to speed the process, you can call the Finance Source directly to ask them to accept the request on RouteOne).
      • Inactive: The Finance Source declined the request to connect and you will not be able to send applications to them.
    • Add a Finance Source to the list by clicking the 'Add Finance Source' button.
    • You will see a complete list of Finance Sources that are integrated with RouteOne. Note: Only request a connection with the Finance Source you have an agreement with your dealership.
    • Agreement validation with the Finance Source added will not be instantaneous. The Finance Sources must first accept the request. The status of the request can be reviewed by going through steps 1-3.
    • Once a single Finance Source becomes 'Active' you are now able to start sending credit applications to all the Finance Sources that are active with you.
