NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX), a global information solutions provider, today announced availability of PowerLead Offer a new soft-pull credit-based solution, designed for the dealership service lane, that prescreens customers for potential vehicle lending offers.
Instances where a customer brings a vehicle to the dealership for maintenance or repairs present a unique opportunity to prescreen for additional sales opportunities. PowerLead Offer enables a service provider to prescreen the customer, either prior to their arrival or on-the-spot, to assess eligibility and terms for a new car firm offer of credit. When the consumer qualifies, a firm offer of credit can be provided to the customer during the car servicing experience.
"A face-to-face encounter with a customer is a sales conversion opportunity and the introduction of a qualified offer enables the dealership to better maximize every customer touchpoint, even outside the showroom," said John Giamalvo, vice president of dealer services at Equifax.
Dominion Dealer Solutions, a leading provider of web-based customer relationship management and dealer management system technology, was the first within the industry to adopt PowerLead Offer. The company will leverage the solution as an enhancement to its equity mining platform DealActivator™ to help increase the unique value it provides to its dealer customers.
"This integration will keep our dealers compliant and their customer's information secure, while helping to significantly increase the dealers' equity opportunities in the service lane," said Alan Andreu, general manager of equity solutions for Dominion Dealer Solutions. "I am excited that DealActivator can directly offer dealers soft credit pulls with the largest credit provider in the country."
