To create a Prior approval case online, log in as a dealer and enter the mandatory information and submit it to assign a case to an approver who is related to a particular manufacturer. After the approver confirms that all of the data in the prior approval is correct, the approver then reassigns it to a dealer. The dealer converts the prior approval into a Warranty claim case. If an approver denies the prior approval, the system sends an automatic notification to the dealer and changes the case status to Resolved-Denied.
