"DFS is pleased to become a part of the RouteOne network of finance sources. This relationship will provide numerous benefits to our dealership customers nationwide," said Sherri L. Helmond, senior vice president at DFS.
Through the DFS and RouteOne integration, certified dealerships will be able to use RouteOne to submit applications to MILES (Military Installment Loan and Educational Services), a DFS program which assists active-duty military personnel with obtaining vehicle financing from a national bank.
"A large majority of our certified dealer base are currently active with RouteOne. This partnership will increase the accessibility and utilization of the MILES Program which brings excitement to both us and our dealership customers," said Steve Hoback, senior vice president at DFS.
"We are pleased and proud to offer the services of DFS to our dealer customers," said RouteOne CEO Mike Jurecki. "We are excited to enter into this market, which is previously untapped by RouteOne. We believe this integration will provide excellent benefits to our service men and women, and we are happy to serve them in this capacity."
