DES PLAINES, Ill. –PCMI Corporation has signed a bi-directional integration agreement with ADP Dealer Services for its cloud-based software solutions for F&I product sales.
According to company officials, PCMI is the first ADP Third Party Access Program provider certified for aftermarket product sales in the service department.
ADP’s Third Party Access Program provides an open, secure and integrated channel for third-party providers to access the dealer management system. ADP currently has more than 100 such application providers participating in this program.
This international ADP agreement pertains to PCMI’s open platform serving three key profit areas of the auto dealership:
- Deal Management: Contains product presentation, e-rating, e-contracting and e-remittance to support the sale and accounting of aftermarket products including extended warranties sold at the time a vehicle is purchased.
- Service Department Aftermarket Product Sales: Enables the sale of aftermarket products in the service drive.
- Service Department Aftermarket Warranty Administration: Automates the claim adjudication process, including the ability to retrieve a repair order. The solution pulls the repair order out of the DMS, identifies respective charges permissible within predetermined parameters and automatically credits the dealership’s account. This enables the service advisor to be more productive as they no longer have to stop work, call an administrator for routine approval or manually enter claims data into a portal.
With this announcement, users of ADP DMS now have an approved third-party solution for the sale, claims management and revenue reporting of aftermarket products like extended warranties, Etch, GAP, theft-deterrent products and more.
PCMI software is available in different languages to support clients’ international operations. The company’s Policy Claim and Reporting Solutions (PCRS) application also streamlines workflow for third-party administrators, insurers and agents servicing auto dealers.
