WILKES-BARRE. PA. — October 25, 2021 –GWC Warranty, the automotive industry’s best-in-class provider of F&I solutions for used vehicles, has teamed with DealerCenter, the leading provider of dealership management systems (DMS) in the pre-owned industry, to offer a free trial of DealerCenter’s all-in-one, cloud-based DMS to independent dealerships. Beginning October 1, 2021, GWC Warranty customers who are not currently DealerCenter customers may sign up for a free 90-day trial of the DMS.
“Many independent dealerships are clamoring for more technology resources to help them do business more efficiently,” said Jeremy Beck, Vice President of Sales Operations at GWC Warranty. “DealerCenter has a great reputation and experience in this market, and their company’s core values align with our own. We are proud to recommend DealerCenter’s premiere solution to our own valued customers.”
“Our customers who are also GWC Warranty customers know the tremendous benefits of having their F&I platform seamlessly integrated into their DMS,” said Barry Lane, DealerCenter’s VP of Business Development. “Since DealerCenter and GWC Warranty became preferred partners in 2020, our companies have had great synergy and together we are delivering a more seamless and transparent F&I process to both dealers and car shoppers.”
The integration of GWC Warranty’s F&I platform into DealerCenter’s all-in-one, cloud-based DMS platform offers a significant time-saving benefit to dealerships and consumers during the vehicle purchase process. When F&I and DMS platforms are fully integrated, dealership employees no longer have to leave the DMS platform and log into a separate F&I system to get rates and terms during the F&I process. Employees can easily pull rates and terms for any GWC Warranty F&I product into the DMS with just a couple of clicks.
“Time and transparency are important factors in the consumer buying experience, so anything we can do to help dealers provide a quick and positive buying experience is a win-win,” said Beck.
“Given the current environment, dealers are having to adapt to new ways to provide information, provide payments and deliver vehicles,” said Lane. “Our DMS provides that digital and mobile experience that allows dealers to meet customers where they are in the buying cycle, and to provide a more transparent experience.”
