Open Lending and AutoPay Form a Strategic Partnership

AUSTIN, TEXAS – December 17, 2018 – Open Lending, LLC, is pleased to announce its partnership with AutoPay to jointly make the car loan process fast and easy. Together, Open Lending and AutoPay will provide clients with the lowest possible rate, saving customers time and money. Most importantly, incorporating the Lenders Protection program into every lending opportunity with AutoPay allows the lender base to say “YES” to more automotive loans.

Open Lending works exclusively with automotive lenders by providing loan analytics, riskbased pricing, risk modeling and automated decision technology. AutoPay helps new and used vehicle buyers get an idea of their pre-approved budget prior to shopping, helping consumers avoid any disappointments in the shopping process.

“We are excited to integrate AutoPay’s solutions to enhance our refinance campaigns and drive more automotive loan volume for our clients. Helping lenders say YES to more automotive loans means a great deal to us,” stated John Flynn, Open Lending’s CoFounder, President, and CEO.

Lenders on the Lenders Protection program have access to greater automotive loan application flow for both new loans and refinancing existing loans. Once lenders have already made the decision to work with Open Lending, AutoPay can jointly provide more automotive loans to build the Lenders Protection portion of their portfolio. For lenders already working with AutoPay, introducing Lenders Protection into their strategy makes them a more full-spectrum lender, which greatly enhances profitability, for a win-win.

Seth Meyer, AutoPay’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner, said, “We have long recognized Open Lending as an industry leader in the automotive lending space. Our clients are going to be greatly pleased with the integration of our two systems.”

AutoPay’s consumer online experience is simple though robust. If a borrower does not complete the process online, a “Loan Champion” from the AutoPay call center will reach out via email, text or phone call to assist them in finalizing their application. Loan Champion call center support offers the personal attention some consumers prefer, leading to a much more satisfactory result and higher close ratios versus being left to online options alone.
