IAS, a provider of F&I software and aftermarket programs, announced the completion of a certification process by DealerTrack, giving SmartMenu Complete dealers the ability to integrate with the DealerTrack DMS (formerly Arkona) in real time.
The addition of DealerTrack DMS integration makes SmartMenu Complete the first F&I software application to have certified interfaces to the nation’s three largest DMS providers.
“Several years ago we decided that it only makes sense to integrate with a DMS where we can have a direct relationship with the DMS provider,” said Matt Nowicki, director of IT for IAS. “When a dealer that utilizes the DealerTrack DMS wants to establish real-time integration with SmartMenu Complete, we can have the dealer up and running almost immediately thanks to our OpenTrack certification.”
OpenTrack is an interface into the DealerTrack DMS. It gives third-party solution providers real-time, bi-directional access to a dealership's data.
SmartMenu Complete is a fully Web-based approach, meaning there is no special software for a dealer to install. F&I managers see a real time “what you see is what you get” menu preview, showing each package payment as well as base payments and final menu previews. F&I managers can utilize advanced functionality such as payment rolling, dynamic sales tools, and electronic rating and contracting of warranty products from many of the largest F&I product providers.
SmartMenu Complete is available to new dealers on a first-year free basis. A free, self guided demo is available 24/7 at www.smartmenucomplete.com/demo.
