SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Zurich announced yesterday that dealers can now submit consumer contracts electronically through its Web-enabled sales and contract management process system, called F&I Rate Track.

Zurich first introduced F&I Rate Track to its dealer customers in 2008 to quote Zurich F&I products. “Now, just two years later, Zurich continues to achieve its goal of providing its customers with tools to help them do business more efficiently and effectively,” said Vincent Santivasi, regional F&I manager for Zurich North America Commercial’s Direct Markets unit. “Adding eContracts and the electronic submission functionality to F&I Rate Track is one of the many ways our team in Zurich’s F&I division is looking out for dealers.

With this new capability, dealers can now create electronic contracts and print them on a plain-paper printer, automatically send contracts to Zurich and ensure the contract is complete before printing and submission to Zurich.
