Baton Rouge, La. - AppOne and Payless Car Sales Inc. announced that they have teamed up to offer Payless dealers access to AppOne's sales and risk mitigation tools. AppOne, a part of Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, sees the alliance as an opportunity to help Payless dealers streamline and improve their sales process.

“With the intense competition in the auto industry right now, our goal is to help independent dealers build the financial and technological resources they need to sustain their business,” said Lee Domingue, CEO of AppOne. “AppOne not only helps them compete with the larger franchise dealers, but it also allows them to devote as much time as possible to what they do best—marketing and selling vehicles.”

Saint Petersburg, Fla.-based Payless believes that the AppOne platform, which includes loan and aftermarket documentation, compliance tools and the breadth of experience behind Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Bankers Systems product line, will prove to be a benefit to their dealers.

“We are continually looking for tools that help our dealer franchisees stay ahead of their competitors,” said Mike Harley, Payless president and COO. “With its cutting-edge technology, compliance expertise and financing assistance, the AppOne platform does this on a number of different levels.”
