CUDL Introduces New iPhone App
ONTARIO, Calif. – CUs that partner with Credit Union Direct Lending (CUDL) can now let their members know they can shop for cars on their iPhone.
CUDL said it is rolling out its new CUDL AutoSMART iPhone app that replicates features of CUDL’s AutoSMART website. The app can also be used for the Apple iPad and iPod Touch.
Free to iPhone owners through the Apple App Store, the new app gives members and consumers the ability to perform selected steps of the vehicle buying process from their iPhone – from initial vehicle shopping and research, to accessing their pre-approved credit union loan and connecting with an auto dealership in their area.
“Our AutoSMART iPhone application is our first step in changing the automobile purchasing process by giving the consumer control over their financing while sitting in the F&I office,” said Kip Haas, EVP-products and technology at CUDL.
“Our goal was to provide a dynamic research tool that leveraged the AutoSMART site to further simplify members’ approach to vehicle shopping, while also helping our credit unions to stay connected with their members throughout the car-buying process,” stated Tony Boutelle, president and CEO of CUDL.
