In-dealership financing remains the lifeblood of many used car dealerships, offering a vital mechanism for customers to purchase. However, used car dealer reliance on their captive financier(s) often presents limitations, especially for those with varied credit profiles.

Here’s how Zink is transforming used car financing:

Zink's Integration

Zink seamlessly integrates with existing dealership finance structures, enhancing rather than replacing them. With customisation available, this integration empowers used car dealerships to cater to a broader range of customers while ensuring a smooth transition and minimal learning curve for dealership teams in expanding a lender panel from 2 or 3 lenders to 50+.

Empowering Through a Robust Lender Network

What sets Zink apart is its extensive network of over 50 lender comparisons. While used car dealer captive financing may be constrained to a select few, Zink's platform casts a wider net. This inclusivity means that customers spanning prime to subprime credit profiles can find tailored financing solutions, that best serve all parties.

Protect Captive Financing

What sets Zink apart as the go-to solution for used dealers is its lender selection customisation. With Zink, dealers can set the system to only display captive financiers for consumers who qualify and only if they don’t qualify present a waterfall of other lenders prepared to service the loan.  

Precision Through AI and Machine Learning

Zink's proprietary Traffic Light Credit Assessment Engine is at the heart of this synergy. It goes beyond merely matching customers with lenders; leveraging advanced AI and machine learning, Zink assesses each applicant against thousands of lending criteria. This ensures precise matches, securing favourable terms for both customers and dealerships.

Efficiency in Action

Zink brings efficiency to the workflow through its Traffic Light system, providing instant collated insights. If the lights are green, the deal can progress seamlessly. In case of a yellow light, the system swiftly assigns the deal for further processing, ensuring agility in handling potential opportunities.

From prime customers seeking competitive rates to subprime customers looking for tailored solutions, End-of-lease, refinance opportunities, and secondary goods like leisure items all within one platform, Zink opens the door to a diverse market.

Zink's efficiency contributes to a positive customer experience by providing financing solutions that suit individual circumstances. Further, factoring the upside, it drives keeping customers within your database and using your secondary services like aftermarket, servicing and vehicle revenue, to serve more clients how they wish to be served.
