The Impact Group Launches eContracting with Provider Exchange Network

The Impact Group’s Fusion Menu partners with Provider Exchange Network for electronic ratings, forms and contract origination.

Provider Exchange Network (PEN), a division of Open Dealer Exchange, LLC, is pleased to announce integration with the F&I menu company The Impact Group, Inc. Impact’s Fusion Menu will now feature electronic rating, forms and contract origination via PEN.

“We couldn’t be more excited about the partnership with Provider Exchange Network,” said Mark Thorpe, President of The Impact Group. “Our ultimate goal is to make eRating and eContracting an integral component of the Fusion menu process for our dealers. A forward-thinking and seamless process is vital to reducing wasted time, eliminating errors and enhancing the F&I experience for everyone involved.”
Dealers using the Fusion menu system will now be able to rate service contracts and other F&I products instantly and without errors. In addition, the system supports plain-paper contracts and electronic origination.

“The Impact Group is an outstanding organization with a fast-growing dealer base,” said Mark Virag, Managing Director of PEN. “This relationship brings us one step closer to our goal of eContracting for every dealer in North America.”

PEN is an electronic data exchange that streamlines the sales process by integrating the F&I product provider with the dealer’s point-of-sale system, whether through a menu or directly with the dealership management system (DMS) desking software. This unique integration approach eliminates the need for separate applications to enable eContracting for aftermarket products. Functions include electronic ratings, forms preparation and contract origination.
