F&I Express Partners with Roadster to Create a Dynamic F&I Experience on the Roadster Ecommerce Platform

Grapevine, TX —  January 13, 2017

F&I Express is excited to announce that Roadster, the leader in eCommerce solutions for car buying and leasing, is integrated with F&I Express.

Roadster’s many dealerships will now be able to provide car buyers with accurate aftermarket product quotes and educational material using F&I Express’s Express Digital Media solution. The Express Digital Media solution utilizes a proprietary F&I Express Dealer Service Provider (DSP) API and provides instant connectivity to accurate quotes and product content from over 130 providers.

A 2015 Cox Automotive study showed there is a significant gap in consumer understanding of F&I products. The study reports that 8 out of 10 people surveyed would be interested in learning about F&I products before entering the dealership, with 63 percent stating that they would be more likely to buy F&I products if they could learn about them before finalizing their vehicle purchase.

The Express Digital Media solution helps dealerships take advantage of increased F&I aftermarket insurance revenues by taking F&I out of the finance office to where the customer feels more comfortable. Express Digital Media empowers the car buyer with the information they need to research F&I aftermarket products for any specific vehicle.

“Giving car shoppers the opportunity to review F&I products on their own time just makes sense,” said Rudi Thun, COO of Roadster.” We are proud to partner with a company like F&I Express who shares our passion for helping dealers realize more efficient and productive sales through customer empowered commerce.”

Brian Reed, President and CEO of F&I Express added, “Our DSP API will indeed empower the car buyer and consequently the dealer will enjoy increases F&I profits. It’s a win for everyone.”
