Dealertrack Partners with Element Payment Services to Simplify Electronic Payment Processing at Automotive Dealerships

Dealertrack Technologies (Nasdaq:TRAK) today announced a partnership with Element Payment Services, a Vantiv company, to seamlessly integrate electronic payment processing into Dealertrack DMS 2.0.

With Element’s fully integrated payment technology within Dealertrack DMS 2.0, all types of dealership business, including parts and service billing, vehicle deposits, full or partial payments and refunds, can be processed easily and efficiently using credit or debit cards. Element’s PCI-compliant electronic payment engine, which eliminates the need for standalone and costly point-of-sale terminals or unsecure third-party applications, simplifies card payment acceptance and dramatically reduces the risk associated with handling personal cardholder data.

“Across the country, automotive dealers have been a primary recipient of credit and debit card payments for many years. To effectively handle these types of payments within a dealership, dealers need a reliable tool that is fully integrated with their systems and processes,” said Sharon Kitzman, vice president and general manager, DMS, Dealertrack. “This partnership with Element will help dealers significantly streamline their daily electronic payment processing through seamless DMS integration to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and add a reliable level of security.”

“Element is excited to partner with Dealertrack to provide their software clients with a powerful fully integrated, simple and secure payment processing solution,” said Matt Downs, general manager, Integrated Partner Business at Element/Vantiv.

“Element provides the full breadth of services a merchant needs as both a full-service processor and a provider of gateway cloud services,” said Downs. Additionally, because the DMS integration to Element features point-to-point encryption technology (P2PE), Dealertrack was able to remove its software application from the scope of PCI compliance while ensuring sensitive cardholder information, targeted by hackers, never enters its customers’ systems. “Our TransForm® approach to payment processing is clear: Remove the value and accessibility of cardholder data and eliminate the risk,” said Downs.

For more information about the Element’s electronic payment processing solution within Dealertrack DMS 2.0, please call 866-435-3636, ext. 1721.
