DealerTrack Adds Allstate Credit to Aftermarket Network

September 10, 2008

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. — DealerTrack Aftermarket Services Inc., a subsidiary of DealerTrack Holdings Inc., a leading provider of on-demand software and data solutions for the U.S. automotive retail industry, has announced that Allstate Credit Division has joined the DealerTrack Aftermarket Network, an industry-leading solution for real-time aftermarket contract rating, quote generation and digital contracting. Allstate Credit Division is one of the nation's leading providers of guaranteed auto protection (GAP) products.

"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 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, 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."

Allstate Credit Division is one of 37 providers that have joined the DealerTrack Aftermarket Network, which provides dealers free access to real-time information on aftermarket products and services. DealerTrack's online rating and digital contract functionality was designed to create a more efficient F&I process. Dealers subscribing to DealerTrack's eMenu, which is fully integrated with the Aftermarket Network, can realize even greater efficiencies by presenting aftermarket product options to their customers.
