Real-time information exchange has added immense value to our business. Not only are we able to update rates and other terms for our various loan products, but dealers are also able to calculate actual loan costs based on Vehicle and customer information in seconds. There‘s no guesswork, no last minute changes, and no post-purchase denials. SpreadsheetWEB streamlines our business. It allows us to price our products more accurately. With better pricing and quicker service, we‘re increasing our value in a very competitive business.
