AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IAS, a leading provider of F&I solutions to automobile dealerships, announced the completion of a certification process by Autosoft, giving SmartDealerProducts dealers the ability to integrate with the Autosoft DMS in real time, without the need for a hostile interface to the dealer's system.  The addition of integration with Autosoft gives the SmartDealerProducts Suite the most comprehensive DMS partner list in the industry.

"Several years ago we decided that it only makes sense to integrate with a DMS where we can have a direct relationship with the DMS provider," said Matt Nowicki, vice president of retail software for IAS.  "When a dealer that utilizes the Autosoft DMS wants to establish real-time integration with SmartMenu and/or SmartP.R.U., we can have the dealer up and running almost immediately thanks to our certified approach."

"By utilizing sanctioned and certified DMS integration, dealers can expect a reliable and secure connection to data in the DMS," said Christopher Morris, senior vice president of business development at Autosoft. "A certified interface prevents duplicate data entry and ensures consistency in F&I without comprising the customer experience."

SmartMenu is a fully web-based menu application, meaning there is no special software for a dealer to install.  F&I managers see a real time "what you see is what you get" menu preview, showing each package payment as well as base payments and final menu previews.  F&I managers can utilize advanced functionality such as payment rolling, dynamic sales tools, and electronic rating and contracting of warranty products from many of the largest F&I product providers.

SmartP.R.U. is a web-based F&I reporting tool that gives dealers real-time access to critical F&I metrics through a variety of reports.  Reports include sorting, filtering, and drill down capabilities and can be scheduled for email delivery.
