Xtime announced Wednesday it has integrated its Xtime Engage product with Vantiv Integrated Paymen. This will provide dealerships with a payment process that allows customers to easily submit payments online or via tablets.
In addition to giving Xtime users access to menus, pricing and service history, dealers can now accept a wide range of payment types both in-store and online with the new integration.
“By meeting customers on their terms and valuing their time, dealers can instill satisfaction and loyalty and drive their revenue,” Xtime marketing and managed services division vice president Jim Roche said in a news release. “The checkout experience should leave a positive impression and not diminish, or ruin, an otherwise excellent service experience.”
Additionally, even Xtime software users who currently employ another company to process payments can access Vantiv’s integrated solution.
“We are very pleased to partner with Xtime to offer a flexible payment option that employs the highest standards in security and safety to the U.S. automotive industry,” added Matt Downs, head of channel and business development at Vantiv.
“This solution provides automotive dealerships with a new level of security by offering point-to-point encryption, as well as improving the consumer’s experience by offering a full suite of payment methods.”
The payment solution is PCI-compliant, when processing card transactions it utilizes encryption and tokenization to maintain the high-security standards, according to Xtime.
