CRIF Select Partners with Open Lending

ATLANTA (March 23, 2016) – CRIF Select, a division of CRIF Lending Solutions and leading provider of indirect lending solutions, has partnered with Open Lending and announced its SelectConnect technology will now fully integrate with Open Lending’s Lenders Protection risk management program.

This integration will provide loan officers with technology that instantaneously delivers an insured alternative for loans that would be conditioned or denied due to down payment requirements or term limits. Lenders Protection allows financial institutions to reduce the risk associated with non-prime lending while strengthening dealer relationships that will result in more volume and higher yields. Based in Austin, Texas, Open Lending specializes in loan analytics, risk-based pricing, risk modeling and automated decision technology for automotive lenders throughout the United States.“Excelling at the highest levels of today’s indirect lending market requires technology that provides growth opportunities while also streamlining the lending process,” said Jeremy Engbrecht, President, CRIF Select division, CRIF Lending Solutions. “Partnering with Open Lending for its Lenders Protection program is the latest example of our renewed commitment to setting the industry standard for indirect lending solutions.”

CRIF Select specializes in indirect auto lending partner programs.
