F&I Express has Added Zurich North America’s F&I Products to its Platform of Digital Solutions

F&I Express announced today it has added Zurich North America’s Finance and Insurance (F&I) products to its platform of digital solutions. The move provides auto dealerships across the country with broader technology and innovation options for accessing Zurich’s menu of insurance solutions.

F&I Express integrates with over 3,000 dealerships and 160 aftermarket product providers providing technology, which allows dealerships to eRate and eContract. This technology makes a seamless, error-free process in the F&I office.

“The addition of Zurich to the F&I Express platform is a huge milestone for us,” says Brian Reed President and Co-Founder of F&I Express. “Zurich is one of the largest aftermarket product providers, the integration will create more opportunities for both parties.”

“Integrating Zurich into the F&I Express online platform gives auto dealerships flexibility in accessing our suite of F&I products and services,” said Marie Knight, head of Zurich Direct Markets Strategic Services. “Ultimately car buyers will have the ability to shop and purchase F&I products digitally – the way many of them prefer.”
