AUSTIN, Texas — RoadVantage, a provider of F&I programs, has announced the successful completion of its SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II audit.

After successfully completing the SSAE 16 Type I audit in December, RoadVantage sought the Type II audit to emphasize its dedication to best practices as the company continues its rapid growth, officials said. The third-party audit evaluated the execution of RoadVantage’s operational controls and critical procedures.

“The SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II audit is really the gold standard within the industry,” said Gary Pennington, partner at SSAE 16 Professionals, LLP, the firm that conducted the audit. “The Type I audit evaluates the design of internal controls, while the Type II audit measures the operating effectiveness of those controls — how do those controls behave when put into action? This makes the Type II audit much more challenging to successfully complete.”

The audit undergone by RoadVantage was conducted in accordance with the AICPA SOC reporting standards by SSAE 16 Professionals, a full service accounting firm providing SSAE 16 (SOC 1) audits, SOC 2 audits, and other IT compliance audits.

“By successfully completing both the Type I and Type II audits, we demonstrate our ongoing commitment to excellence,” said Garret Lacour, CEO of RoadVantage. “Our customers can be assured that even with our rapid growth, our operational standards are best in class.”
