introduced its new flagship product, BIGFNI(TM), a decisioning engine that

allows auto dealers and lenders to decision financing in real time in a

announced the enrollments at the conclusion of National Automobile Dealers

Association (NADA) Convention and Exposition held in San Francisco from Feb. 1-4, 2003, where BIG rolled out its new flagship product.

acceptance by this large number of auto dealers who recognize the

opportunity BIGFNI brings to dealers, their customers and lenders,"

many benefits of BIGFNI including the ability to match financing options in

seconds; better tracking of applications; faster, smarter approvals; a

speedier process; reduction of the risk of unwind; ability for the dealer and

lender to rehash a deal and submit for approval in real time; ability to

interface with existing dealer IT systems; better vehicle inventory control;

standardized application; automatic application withdrawal; increased F&I

profitablility; enhancement of the customer profile for CRM follow-up; higher

ratio of deal closings and time savings.
