04: Credit Application
It is not until an actual credit application is submitted do we run any customer's credit. Not even during the pre-qualification stage. This is the last step in solidifying the transaction and bringing it to fruition.
When a Frontier AE or other sales rep follows this process, they are setting themselves up for success. They are getting in front of the buyer and positioning themselves as a credible sales professional who is invested in making sure the customer is making the right decision.
