General RV Centers, one of the largest volume recreational vehicle (RV) dealers in the United States, has joined the Wolters Kluwer Financial Services AppOne® platform through its Integrated Dealer Systems’ (IDS) Astra G2 dealer management software. AppOne helps automate the credit approval, document preparation and financing processes for dealers and the lenders they work with.
General RV will use the AppOne interface within Astra G2 Sales and F&I module, which helps dealers seamlessly manage and monitor each step of the sales process. AppOne was integrated with Astra G2 last year, allowing dealers to pull financial data already entered into their dealer management software (DMS) to populate credit applications and easily submit them to lenders for approval via AppOne. This eliminates duplicate data entry, helping make the processing of loan applications faster and less error-prone.
General RV is also able to access and print Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ state-specific Bankers Systems® loan documents, including retail installment contracts and required ancillary forms, from within AppOne. The Bankers Systems line of documents is built upon more than 50 years of experience and is protected by Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ industry-leading limited compliance warranty.
“Like Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, we have been focused on providing exceptional service to our customers for decades,” said Larry Peter, vice president at General RV. “Investing in new technology has been critical in maintaining that goal, and AppOne further supports our efforts by simplifying both the credit application and contract creation process.”
“We help dealerships provide complete, accurate and compliant loan documentation, which is a critical area of focus for many dealers right now as the Consumer and Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) begins to expand its oversight to vehicle loans,” said Jason Marx, vice president and general manager of Indirect Lending and Residential Lending at Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “We are very excited to help another well-respected dealership make the loan documentation process more efficient and connect with lending sources using AppOne.”
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Indirect Lending business monitors pending and enacted legislation that impacts the marine, auto and RV finance and dealer markets. The company’s compliance documentation, software and services help both lenders and dealers mitigate risk and ensure new laws and regulations are embedded within their business operations. Prominent brands include AppOne®, Bankers Systems® and CompliSource.
