September Featured Business Partner | Allied Solutions

The featured AFSA Business Partner for September is Allied Solutions. We asked them a few questions about the value of AFSA membership and some of the opportunities or challenges they face in 2022. Learn more at alliedsolutions.net.

What are some key initiatives for your clients in 2022 that you are planning to support?
These past few years, the auto finance industry has seen remarkable shifts in regulation and rulemaking, particularly around repossessions and voluntary protection product cancellations. Every day we educate our clients on these impacts and the potential changing business requirements these regulations demand.

Another notable area of impact that we are helping our clients navigate is using data for process efficiencies and portfolio performance. This is achieved through Portfolio Analytics – a predictive analytics suite that transforms strategic planning by delivering key insight into product, pricing, and portfolio performance. Rather than managing multiple platforms delivering different answers, Portfolio Analytics provides a single view so financial institutions can navigate the road ahead with confidence.

What’s the best part about being an AFSA Business Partner?
In our industry, peer networking is invaluable. As an 8-Star AFSA Premier Business Partner, we take advantage of the conferences, events and committee meetings to share industry knowledge as well as gain timely and relevant industry information. Additionally, gaining insight into the federal and state regulatory landscape is invaluable.

We are grateful for the advocacy that AFSA provides for the auto finance industry and value the connection to that mission.

What’s one thing about life and/or business that you have learned from your clients?
Despite challenging economic times, our clients model resiliency, adaptability, and ethics. We are always learning from our clients, and they inspire us to find new ways to best meet the needs of consumers and the industry. We consider our business partners not only professional colleagues but friends as well.

What might people be surprised to know about Allied Solutions?
Our roots are in a small, family-owned insurance company. In four short decades we grew to become a subsidiary of a Fortune 500 company, Securian Financial. We have been recognized by Forbes for two consecutive years as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers.

We are so proud of the entrepreneurial spirit that built our company and drives our innovation every day. Our clients will tell you that we are more than a vendor, we are a partner. Similarly, our employees know Allied to be more than an employer. Allied is a place where innovation, collaboration, and generosity thrive. The name we’ve assigned to this is Blue Culture, and it bleeds into everything that we do. Blue Culture is our approach to business and employee growth.

Given our strategic office locations throughout the US, we have built great relationships with the Red Cross and United Way, as well as with local organizations such as the City of Carmel, Indiana where Allied is headquartered. Our employees appreciate the opportunities to volunteer and give back to the communities in which they live.

Allied’s unparalleled investments in technology, compliance, and information security are the keystones of who we are and what we bring to the table, and our solutions are best-in-class to protect our clients’ brands and customers. We look forward to creating more solutions through strong and successful partnerships such as AFSA.
