RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. — Finance Express, a provider of Web-based financial services and technology for independent dealerships, has added ACS Financial to its lender platform.

ACS offers leasing and retail financing at prime rates to independent, used-car dealers in 48 states across the country.

"We are pleased to have another national lender on the system that provides not only auto financing but also leasing to our independent dealer base. We know that by having strong, reputable lenders on our platform, it helps our dealers get more deals funded and ultimately be more profitable," said David Huber, president of Finance Express.

"In today's economic state, dealers need lenders more than they ever have before. We think that ACS will be a nice addition to our lender platform offering prime rates to customers that only credit unions can usually compete with," Huber added.

"Partnering with Finance Express enables us to provide used car leasing and prime auto financing to a market that has struggled to find lending sources" said Tarry Shebesta, president of ACS Financial, "We help to give dealers a competitive edge and help them sell more cars."
