Allstate Credit Joins DealerTrack Aftermarket Network

September 03, 2008

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. — DealerTrack Aftermarket Services Inc., a subsidiary of DealerTrack Holdings Inc., a provider of on-demand software and data solutions for the U.S. automotive retail industry, announced that Allstate Credit Division has joined the DealerTrack Aftermarket Network, a solution for real-time aftermarket contract rating, quote generation and digital contracting.

Allstate Credit Division is the leading provider of guaranteed auto protection (GAP) products in the U.S. automotive retail market.

"We are very excited about this breakthrough agreement with Allstate Credit Division," said Mark O'Neil, chairman/CEO of DealerTrack. "Allstate Credit Division's GAP products are offered by approximately 8,500 franchised new-car dealers in the U.S., including privately branded programs. We believe their decision to join our Aftermarket Network will help to drive adoption and usage of the aftermarket network platform by both dealers and other aftermarket providers."

Several recently introduced Allstate Credit Division aftermarket products, including Vehicle Service Contracts and Paintless Dent Repair, will be available on the DealerTrack Aftermarket Network. In addition, as part of the agreement, Allstate Credit Division will use DealerTrack's SCS Express solution, a Web-based platform that helps automotive aftermarket providers to manage their back-office processes. SCS Express integrates and automates the entire administrative process, from product configuration to distribution and selling (through the Aftermarket Network), to contract and claims management.

"The DealerTrack Aftermarket Network and DealerTrack's SCS Express platform will enable both Allstate Credit Division and our dealer customers to streamline our work flows and realize significant efficiencies," said Tony Wanderon, president of Allstate Credit Division. "By offering real-time data and pricing, as well as digital contracting through the DealerTrack platform, we will reduce administrative costs and minimize delays and contract errors, thus enhancing consumer satisfaction with the overall car buying experience."
