F&I Administration Solutions Releases First Mobile Application
Real-Time Data Delivered on iPhone® Application
Wednesday, September 8th, 2010 – F&I Administration Solutions, LLC, announces the release of their first mobile application for the iPhone®. This application will allow customers to view their contracts and coverage for all F&I products bought from a provider using the F&I Admin administration solution.
The application will be branded as the provider’s application. Once downloaded to the mobile device, customers will enter the VIN and other identifying information to register their vehicle with the application. Upon registration, all contracts bought from that provider will be displayed along with relevant coverage details. This first version will also display a copy of the contract itself, details about covered components, claim history and provider and dealer contact information. More functionality will be built around this core data in upcoming versions. Attendees of this month’s Vehicle Service Contract Administrators Conference will be able to see the application in action.
“We have always said that as an F&I administration solutions provider, it is crucial that we deliver the latest technologies and capabilities,” said David Trinder, CEO of F&I Admin. “Communication through mobile devices is becoming an integral requirement for most businesses and this part of the auto industry is no exception. Most importantly though, this is just the beginning of an ongoing development process through which we will deliver real-time data via many different mobile devices to all constituents within our customer base.”
This latest solution is consistent with F&I Admin’s stated strategy of leading the way with the use of the latest technologies and always keeping up with the needs and demands of the industry. “We have always been committed to using the latest technologies to deliver the best solutions,” says Kumar Kathinokkula, COO of F&I Admin. “We are also linked electronically to nine menu systems and an industry leading credit card payment system. As with these other capabilities, this mobile application is a continuation of our execution of this commitment.”
F&I Admin’s SCS Auto Platform is specifically designed to support vehicle service contracts, GAP, prepaid maintenance, limited warranty, appearance protection products and more. In addition, F&I Admin offers the only solution that will keep companies competitive and support their growth into the future. Trinder sums it up by saying, “This is what we are about: the tools you need, the connections you need and a system that helps you grow your business and build efficiencies in every way possible.”
