MicroBilt, a leading credit bureau data access and retrieval system and RouteOne LLC, the web-based credit application management system launched by DaimlerChrysler Financial Services, Ford Motor Credit Company, General Motors Acceptance Corporation, and Toyota Financial Services, announced today that they have completed integration. RouteOne enables dealers and their finance sources, including captives and independent lenders, to manage the credit application and consumer financing process online, all from a single desktop. With RouteOne, dealers and finance sources are better positioned to manage the complexities of their business. Currently, RouteOne offers 21,500 dealerships nationwide access to 55 finance sources throughout North America. MicroBilt is certified through and provides interfaces with the three consumer bureaus, commercial bureaus as well as other data providers for tenant screening, pre-employment screening and other decision critical searches. Integration between RouteOne and MicroBilt will provide dealers access to CreditCommander.com, MicroBilt's flagship product that allows customers to take an application, pull credit from within CreditCommander.com, and pass the customer information to the RouteOne system to initiate the process. The integration supports both consumer and commercial credit reports in both the U.S. and Canada providing dealer customers with a fast, easy-to-use system that will save time and money. An integral part of CreditCommander.com is its Driver's License Scan product that captures driver's license data on-site and is ideal for initiating the credit process at a dealership and reducing identity fraud. This information is automatically populated into the RouteOne application system. Parameters can also be set to run bankruptcy and criminal reports, as well as other industry relevant reports available through CreditCommander.com. The picture of the driver's license is permanently embedded into the credit report, along with any additional reports pulled on the applicant. "RouteOne's system will allow us to offer superior customer service and user-friendly processes to our dealers," said Ken Hill, MicroBilt President. "Ultimately, our customers will benefit from the increased efficiencies of the web-based system offered by RouteOne." About RouteOne:
