Thursday, March 7, 2019

MaximTrak® (a RouteOne company), the automotive industry’s premier finance and insurance (F&I) platform, was named a preferred provider to Ford Protect, a provider of extended service plans.

MaximTrak will provide Ford dealers across the country with advanced F&I Menu and Reporting technologies including the company’s interactive FLITE® platform.  Ford chose MaximTrak as a preferred provider to offer dealers best-in-class options for showroom digitization and enhancing the customer experience in the F&I Office.  MaximTrak simplifies the transaction, increasing delivery speeds and deal efficiency, and assists dealers in helping customers protect their vehicles through increasing Service Contract and F&I product penetration. 

Ford dealers that enroll will also get the benefits of a streamlined eContracting process.  The products the consumers select on the MaximTrak platform will automatically be available for signature in the RouteOne eContracting system which now features a unified customer signing ceremony for Ford finance, lease, and protection product agreements including Ford Extended Service Plans, Maintenance Plans, GAP Protection, and other Ford Protect products. This functionality enables a fast and secure digital signing experience and allows for the electronic distribution of all F&I documents. 

MaximTrak’s digital solutions available through this preferred provider include:

  • MenuTrak™ – electronic F&I menus, sales presentation, and compliance management.
  • ServiceTrak™ – Service lane and RO up sales and also support protection product sales and enrollment.
