Orlando, Fla. — MenuVantage has announced that Life Of The South (LOTS) has agreed to join its nationwide network of active F&I providers. The company will join over 50 other providers currently on the MenuVantage platform including Cal-Tex Protective Coatings, SouthwestRe, CNA National, EasyCare, GE, API, AFAS, and Safeguard. MenuVantage will electronically rate their products, electronically remit and enroll their customers, as well as enable the dynamic printing of their contracts on plain printer 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 have long since learned the benefits of menu selling. Partnering with MenuVantage was the next logical step for us in our drive to use technology to better service our customers. We are excited that our dealers will soon be able to electronically rate and classify our Greentree Protection Service Contracts in real time as well as properly rate our Greentree Gap, and our credit insurance,” commented David Menges, automotive division AVP, Life Of The South.

Phillip Battista, MenuVantage co-CEO added, “We are excited to have LOTS join our platform and look forward to helping their dealers improve efficiency with our electronic process and submission technology. Our platform 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.”

The MenuVantage system incorporates a powerful 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.
