IAS Forges Nationwide Alliance With Crystal Fusion

AUSTIN – IAS, a leading provider of F&I aftermarket programs to automobile dealerships, today announced a formal alliance with Crystal Fusion Technologies Inc., a leading provider of windshield protection technologies.

Crystal Fusion is an aftermarket product that helps keep vehicle windshields cleaner and stronger while significantly improving hazards associated with night glare and windshield chips.Crystal Fusion may also increase driver reaction time in inclement weather because of a drastic improvement to overall visibility.

“Crystal Fusion is a perfect addition to the IAS portfolio. It adds substantial value to the vehicle sale while providing the car buyer with a tangible benefit,” said Ray Doran, Founder and CEO of Crystal Fusion Technologies Inc. “IAS had all the components in place to expand distribution of Crystal Fusion and we took particular note of their superior reputation for administration and claims.”

Under the alliance, IAS has chosen Crystal Fusion exclusively as part of their Windshield Repair or Replacement warranty program offerings. They currently offer a 5 year limited repair or replacement warranty and a general maintenance program. Product availability differs by state.

“Over the course of 2010, we have seen a robust increase in sales for our windshield repair and replacement warranty programs throughout the United States,” said Bob Corbin, President and CEO of IAS. “Adding Crystal Fusion to our product offerings made sense for IAS because it’s a quality product that will protect our customers as well as have a residual effect on a decrease in claims. Additionally, this opens up a new product for IAS’ dynamic reinsurance program.”

Crystal Fusion’s three step process is simple to install and can take less than ten minutes from start to the delivery of a vehicle. The product is available on both new and used vehicles.

SmartMenu Complete Integrates with DealerTrack DMS

IAS, a provider of F&I software and aftermarket programs, announced the completion of a certification process by DealerTrack, giving SmartMenu Complete dealers the ability to integrate with the DealerTrack DMS (formerly Arkona) in real time.

The addition of DealerTrack DMS integration makes SmartMenu Complete the first F&I software application to have certified interfaces to the nation’s three largest DMS providers.

“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, director of IT for IAS. “When a dealer that utilizes the DealerTrack DMS wants to establish real-time integration with SmartMenu Complete, we can have the dealer up and running almost immediately thanks to our OpenTrack certification.”

OpenTrack is an interface into the DealerTrack DMS. It gives third-party solution providers real-time, bi-directional access to a dealership’s data.

SmartMenu Complete is a fully Web-based approach, 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.

SmartMenu Complete is available to new dealers on a first-year free basis. A free, self guided demo is available 24/7 at www.smartmenucomplete.com/demo.

For more information or to schedule an in person or online demonstration, contact Kris Wiley with IAS at (800) 346-6469 extension 8989.
