Chrysler Financial´s ACE System Improved With RouteOne

December 2, 2004

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- Chrysler Financial improved its Automated Credit Evaluation (ACE) system by adding RouteOne. The updated system was launched about a month ago to more than 4,000 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealers in the United States.

RouteOne gives dealerships a single point of entry to submit credit applications to Chrysler Financial and other financing sources. It also provides tools to manage and track daily operations in the F&I department.

Key features of ACE featuring RouteOne include Deal Manager, which acts as a repository for all credit applications and holds 60 days worth of contracts. Deal Manager offers real-time access to comprehensive reporting and analysis, including advanced search and filtering capabilities.

"I have found that RouteOne has reduced my application processing time by 20 percent," said Larry Allison, F&I manager at John Hoffer Dodge in Carthage, Mo.

Chrysler Financial is working on several productivity enhancements to make the F&I process with its dealers more efficient and customer friendly. Vehicle incentives, customer payoff information and customer history information are some features that will be added to ACE featuring RouteOne exclusively in the coming months.

TILA requires lenders to fully disclose financing terms. Industry associations said this ruling could save the financial services industry as much as $2.9 billion in increased damages on new- and used-car loans.
