Multi-bureau Credit Solution

ProMax Multibureau

For over 20 years ProMax has been an industry leader in innovative Desking solutions and credit products, and one of the only resellers of all three automotive credit bureaus. Now we’re happy to announce our latest innovation: the Multi-Bureau Solution.

Last year ProMax conducted a groundbreaking 6-month study of over 700 new and used auto dealers across the U.S. We analyzed over 650,000 showroom visitors with over 1,000,000 credit bureau reports pulled and over 180,000 vehicle sales. The analysis of this massive data set is conclusive and unmistakable: pulling multiple credit reports per customer increases both the number of sales and your back-end profits.

See the results of this 6-month study including:

  • Variance on Scores
  • Effects on Sales
  • Effects on Reserve and Back-End Profit
  • Comparisons of dealerships

The different score models can vary by up to 75 points or more and the scores can vary by up to 100 points or more. Viewing these discpencies side by side can show you opportunities you may be missing. It may be the difference between getting a deal approved or denied.

ProMax gives you the technology and traning you need to make the credit process fast and easy. Your ProMax Dealer Suppport Specialist can help you set up your Lender Review and Submittal screen to help you get the most our of your multi-bureau report. We will work with your F & I Director to make sure that your lenders are set up accurately. We will make sure that the appropriate bureau and score model is correct for each of your lenders. Getting this information set up correctly and working with your finance manager ensures that you will get the best combination of rate, reserve, payment and profit when you desk your deals.

Employment and Income Verifcation

ProMax has an integration with Equifax's Employment and Income verification product. If you have this service, a check will automatically be done and it will show up as a button on the top of the new Multi-bureau report if there is employment data on your customer who is applying for credit. This feature can help you reduce your dealership's risk and get instant access to current employment and income information.

Debt to Income Ratio Analysis

This is also another great feature of the Mulit-bureau report. At the top of the bureau is a button that links to the Debt to Income Ratio. This screen shos all open abbounts, balances, minimum payments and interest reates on installment loans. With the correct income you can see the debt to income ratio. With this information, you are also offered the opportunity to use a closing technique of paying off a low balance, higher interest loan to pay off for the new loan, lowering the overall effective car payment and closing the deal at full gross.
