Buy Here, Pay Here
Industry data estimates that as many as one third of your customers may default. It is critical you have the technology, innovation and tools to best manage your portfolio and asset recovery process.
The Performance of Skypatrol’s GPS and Cellular antennas score over TWICE as efficient as the competitor. This can mean the difference between locating a vehicle — or not.
In today’s dynamic economic climate, even the best-intentioned prime consumers can default on loan payments. Sub-prime lending, while it can be very profitable, has more consistent risks. Yet, there is increased pressure to expand your auto market share which can mean extending financing to more people with challenging credit.
Skypatrol gives financial institutions the flexibility they need to protect and monitor their collateral giving them complete visibility and control of their assets. With Defender, lenders can effectively reduce loss, increase efficiency — and ultimately boost portfolio performance.
For financial institutions operating across the United States, Defender offers reliable nationwide coverage through Verizon Wireless — making it easy to track and manage vehicles from anywhere. We are a direct source of proprietary GPS products: hardware and software with final product assembly, quality assurance testing and customer support are all located in the US.
