It’s easy to read and something I would never do without.”

Work With The Right Dealers

Without proper insight into dealership behaviors, loan performance, and the competitive landscape, it’s difficult for auto lenders to assess risk and identify high-value dealers to build relationships.



Find profitable dealers and understand your competition with our dealer intelligence solution.

With TradeSight you can:

  • Understand market share within each dealership.
  • Gain deeper insight into positive and negative selection for each dealership they do business with.
  • Have a view of the overall commercial risk associated with potential dealer partners.


Make the Right Deals in the Right Way

Make more confident decisions earlier in your lending process by gaining additional visibility into your customer and help alleviate friction for both the dealer and customer in the F&I office by streamlining the decisioning process. 


Verifying consumer stated information throughout the entire lending process can help you better navigate risk and improve loan profitability. To confidently assess risk and fuel portfolio growth, auto lenders need better insight into their borrowers — both prime and subprime.

Verifications can help you accelerate portfolio growth.
