DAYTON, Ohio – Reynolds and Reynolds today announced the availability of the LAW®West Virginia F&I Library that offers West Virginia automobile and truck dealers a comprehensive catalog of standardized, legally reviewed finance and insurance (F&I) documents. The Reynolds LAW brand West Virginia F&I Library of forms was developed jointly through a partnership between Reynolds Document Services and the West Virginia Automobile and Truck Dealers Association (WVATDA).
“Increasingly, dealers are facing pressures from government regulators, automakers, and consumers that shape how work gets done in the dealership and how consumers experience the dealership,” said Jerry Kirwan, senior vice president and general manager of Reynolds Document Services. “Nowhere is that more apparent than in the F&I office. As a result, dealers are seeking solutions that help them further manage risk, maintain compliance, and improve the customer experience. The LAW West Virginia F&I Library is a set of business tools that can help dealers meet today’s legislative and OEM guidelines. It also will help increase efficiencies in F&I department and deliver an improved car-buying experience to consumers.”
The LAW West Virginia F&I Library of documents will be maintained through the combined expertises of Reynolds Director of Compliance Terry O’Loughlin, Reynolds’ Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals (AFIP) certified compliance legal specialists, and the West Virginia Automobile and Truck Dealers Association, along with its outside legal counsel Johnnie Brown from Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe, PLLC.
