Orlando, Fla. – MenuVantage has announced that Cal-Tex Protective Coatings Inc. has joined its nationwide network of active F&I providers. The company joins over 50 other providers currently on the MenuVantage platform, including SouthwestRe, CNA National, EasyCare, GE, API, AFAS and Safeguard. Cal-Tex is a manufacturer of sealants and other chemical products used to protect the exterior and interior of automobiles and to deter vehicle theft. MenuVantage will electronically rate their products, electronically remit and enroll their customers, as well as enable the dynamic printing of their contracts on regular paper.

MenuVantage’s online rating and contract functionality speeds the entire process, improves accuracy, and eliminates duplicate data entry for both dealers and aftermarket providers.

“We are proud of how well our submission technology is actively working in the market today. Our platform simplifies the whole process and is a huge improvement over the traditional paper-based rate guides and contracting processes. It reduces delays, contract errors and administrative costs; which benefits both dealers and aftermarket providers," said MenuVantage co-CEO Phillip Battista.

MenuVantage has developed a system that not only assists dealers on the front-end, but also providers on the back-end; offering unique benefits to F&I providers. The MenuVantage system incorporates a communication feature that offers the capability to broadcast information directly to their dealer's desktops. With this feature providers can run contests, make announcements and post new product promotions in minutes.

Additional provider benefits include a built-in reporting suite that automatically submits cleared contracts on a daily basis. Providers can now track and monitor dealers daily; detect trends early, identify weak points before they become problems and respond accordingly.
