F&I Administration Solutions Releases Mobile Website For Agents


Chicago – F&I Administration Solutions LLC (F&I Admin) released its mobile Web site that delivers real time contract sales, claim payment data and much more to agents. The mobile Web site supports any mobile device, including iPhones, Android devices, Windows mobile and any other mobile platform that supports Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari mobile browsers. Contract sales, claim payments and much more are available in real time to any agent selling products that are administered through F&I Admin’s SCS Auto express platform.

The real time contract and claim data can be viewed in total across all dealerships or by individual dealership.

F&I Admin Announces SCS Auto Now Integrated with Over 20 Menu Systems


CHICAGO – F&I Administration Solutions (F&I Admin), a provider of software solutions for the administration of automotive F&I products integrated SCS Auto with more than 20 menu systems for electronic rating and electronic contracting. All rating data and all forms are sourced directly from the F&I Admin administration system – SCS Auto – so there is no additional effort for a provider on SCS Auto to support the menu integration.

“Over two years ago we built an open, standard interface to connect electronically with menus and other dealer sales systems for both electronic rating and electronic contracting.” said Kumar Kathinokkula, COO of F&I Admin. “Since then, the adoption by both the menu systems and dealers has been unprecedented.”

The SCS Auto interface to menu systems eliminates any need for a provider to maintain data outside the administration system. This is because all connected systems, including the administration system, access the same database for rates and contracts, so no additional maintenance or effort is required. In addition, transactions are recorded in the same system, so when a dealer enters a contract through a menu, it is immediately visible from within the administration system and is also immediately available to the dealer for electronic remittance and reporting.

“We are very pleased with the way menu systems have embraced the connectivity, and we are especially pleased with the way it is helping our provider customers sell more products,” said David Trinder, CEO of F&I Admin. “When an agent selling one of our customers’ products enters a dealership knowing that the product is supported on just about any selling system the dealership may be using, it significantly adds to the confidence in the process. At the same time, it allows the agent to focus on products and not technology.”

SCS Auto is a fully integrated, Web-based solution built for automotive aftermarket product and service providers to automate and streamline the F&I product administration process. It is specifically designed to support vehicle service contracts, GAP, tire & wheel, appearance protection, limited warranty, theft, key replacement, prepaid maintenance and more. In addition to connectivity to over 20 menu systems, it is also broadly connected to other service providers in the industry, including parts databases, payment plan providers and a credit card provider for the payment of claims.

“This is yet another step in our commitment to connect to all possible partners in the industry to create efficiencies and savings for all parties involved,” said Trinder.

A full list of menu and other dealer selling solutions that are electronically connected to SCS Auto can be found under the “Partners” tab at www.fiadmin.com.

F&I Administration Announces SCS Auto Integration with Inspection Companies


CHICAGO – F&I Administration Solutions (F&I Admin), a provider of software solutions for the administration of automotive F&I products, announced the launch of its integration with inspection companies. Integration has been completed with Warranty Inspection Services, One Guard Inspections, Southwest Inspection Services, Carr Appraisals and Lemon Squad Auto Inspections.

SCS Auto is connected electronically to each inspection company’s ordering and reporting system. As a result, a provider claims manager can order an inspection from the provider’s company of choice by simply clicking a link on the SCS Auto claims screen.

Electronic notifications are received from the inspection company indicating the completion of each stage of the inspection, and when fully complete, the results of the inspection are accessed directly from the claim screen.

“It is extremely gratifying to deliver technology solutions that are so quickly and universally adopted,” said David Trinder, CEO of F&I Admin. “Both our provider customers and the inspection companies have been very quick to adopt the new process.”

“Some technological changes need little selling,” said Kumar Kathinokkula, COO of F&I Admin. “When you tell a claims manager that instead of typing a fax or going to another web site to fill out a detailed form to order an inspection he or she can simply click a button on the claim screen, it does not take much to see 100 percent adoption. One of our provider customers estimates that the process saves over $10 in time and processing costs. That is technology worth delivering.”

SCS Auto is a fully integrated, web-based solution that is built for automotive aftermarket product and service providers to automate and streamline the F&I product administration process. SCS Auto is specifically designed to support vehicle service contracts, GAP, tire & wheel, appearance protection, limited warranty, theft, key replacement, prepaid maintenance and much more.
