Ally Financial Teams with Wolters Kluwer to Expand Reach of RV Financing Through AppOne® Platform

Sep 9, 2013

DETROIT, September 9, 2013 – Ally Financial Inc. and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services today announced that Ally has begun accepting recreation vehicle finance applications through Wolters Kluwer’s AppOne® dealer portal. AppOne is a web-based platform that provides Ally and its RV dealer customers the opportunity to simplify both the credit application and contract preparation processes through an additional channel.

Additionally, Ally will offer dealers the ability to print finance contract documentation through the AppOne portal. This feature will be available in 22 states immediately with additional states to follow.

“We know that dealers want competitive rates, quick credit approvals and fast funding, and we plan to be aggressive on all of these fronts as we continually look for ways to increase the value we offer,” said Mark Manzo, Ally vice president, Alliance Sales. “Our presence on the AppOne dealer portal is one more example of how we’re listening to our dealers and focusing on their priorities.”

AppOne automates traditional processes at the dealership, which helps ensure that financing sources receive funding packages that meet their guidelines. The system helps improve the process for both financial sources and dealers by reducing the number of contracts held up for funding.

“We are committed to offering innovative technology and strategies to address the challenges dealers and financing sources face,” said Brad Fleener, senior director and general manager of Indirect Lending at Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “Our solutions help both dealers and financing sources meet compliance and legal requirements while simplifying the end-to-end process. That means we can help Ally Financial meet the needs of their dealers as Ally builds its portfolio while also helping dealers focus on their retail customers.”

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ Indirect Lending business monitors pending and enacted legislation that impacts the marine, RV and auto finance and dealer markets. The company’s software and services help both financing sources and dealers mitigate risk and ensure they are complying with new laws and regulations.
