TitleTec Partners with NIADA to Help Dealerships Tackle Out-Of-State Titling
ADDISON, TX (July 20, 2015) – TitleTec, a Solera [NYSE: SLH] company and provider of title and registration solutions for automotive dealers, has joined the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) as a National Member Benefit Partner. As the nation’s largest trade association representing the used motor vehicle industry, this partnership will help to streamline the out-of-state titling process for NIADA’s 16,000 members and the more than 38,000 licensed used car dealers in the United States.
TitleTec’s partnership with NIADA represents a major step forward for independent automobile dealers who, like all auto dealers, struggle with the complexities surrounding the title and registration process for out-of-state customers. Previously, automobile dealers that served out-of-state customers were forced to navigate through the intricacies of 50 independent state DMVs which made the out-of-state title and registration process incredibly cumbersome.
“With the immense growth in remote consumer-to-dealer retail transactions, we needed to secure best-in-class, high quality and innovative online vehicle title/registration resources for our member dealers as they expand their geographic marketplaces,” NIADA senior vice president of member services Scott Lilja said. “TitleTec brings the necessary tools, market expertise and state-of-the-art technology to meet and exceed our member needs in this area.”
TitleTec Nationwide is a web-based solution that generates the fees, taxes and state forms for all 50 states, providing a streamlined workflow for dealership titling departments. In years past, dealers have been burdened with having to manually track down the proper forms, fee structures and deadlines necessary to serve out-of-state customers. Due to those complications, out-of-state title and registration processes present many challenges and can negatively impact customer satisfaction index (CSI) scores. TitleTec Nationwide saves valuable time for dealer staff and allows dealers to offer customers the most efficient service possible.
“This solution was created because many of our electronic titling customers were seeking a way to ease the pain of the out-of-state titling process,” said Daniel Burgess, Managing Director of TitleTec. “With TitleTec Nationwide, we’ve responded to that demand and provided a solution that allows dealership titling departments to serve out-of-state car buyers with speed and accuracy.”
TitleTec Nationwide is available to automobile dealers in all 50 states. To learn more about TitleTec Nationwide visit www.titletec.com.
