OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — VinSolutions Inc. has intergrated Carleton's SmartCalcs consumer lending and leasing calculation engine into its recently enhanced desking platform. This new integration will enable VinSolutions dealers to stay in compliance with auto lending regulations, which frequently change.

"At VinSolutions, we are committed to making it easier for salespeople to close deals faster and easier, and providing a comprehensive desking solution is a key component in achieving that goal," said Brian Skutta, vice president and general manager of VinSolutions. "We needed a partner that understands the ever-changing auto lending regulatory environment, and this integration of SmartCalcs will help our dealer customers stay in compliance today and when regulatory changes occur in the future."

Within VinSolutions' newly enhanced desking platform, Carleton's SmartCalcs compliance software provides greater compliance and accuracy for all the lending and leasing computations at the state, federal and lender level nationwide. Along with handling all methods of computations in the auto industry, the robust calculation functionality of SmartCalcs also handles the expansive tax and fee computations for loan and lease transactions nationwide. 

"Accuracy and compliance support are certainly critical to the success of VinSolutions providing a complete desking solution to their dealers," said Patrick J. Ruszkowski, president and CEO of Carleton. "With more than 40 years of experience, we are confident that our time-tested expertise in providing compliant calculation support will be highly beneficial to VinSolutions' customers."

This new integration is the latest in a round of enhancements that VinSolutions has released this year for its desking platform. Other new features provide salespeople with the ability to manage multiple deals at once, render deals on a tablet or mobile device, reduce redundant data entry, and provide for a more transparent and improved customer buying experience.
