FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — RouteOne announced this week that Southeast Toyota Finance, a provider of automotive financing for 176 dealers in the southeastern United States, will now include eContracting on its automotive finance platform.  

“We have a shared commitment to customer service and making it easier for dealers to sell and finance vehicles,” said Justin Oesterle, RouteOne Chief Executive Officer. “RouteOne econtracting improves the customer experience by reducing errors, ensuring all required signatures are captured, and validating deal data — all of which can contribute to faster funding for dealers. Through these and other efficiencies, RouteOne econtracting delivers a positive impact for dealers, customers, and finance sources.”

Recent improvements to RouteOne's econtracting platform have given dealers the ability to capture electronic signatures through their mobile devices, convert econtracts to paper when necessary and switch associated credit applications.  

“Our No. 1 business goal is to help our Toyota dealer partners achieve success," said Joanna Sherry, vice president of sales and marketing at Southeast Toyota Finance. "Econtracting is an initiative that will position our dealers to streamline the contract process and produce faster funding. It will deliver a superior experience to both our dealers and Toyota customers.”

Since its inception, RouteOne has processed five million funded deals through its econtracting platform, according to the company.
