Making webDEALER | eTAG Work for You

infoThe eTAG System has moved to webDEALER! - webDEALER logowebDEALER is now the system used to create Buyer Tags (or other tags) and process title applications. Users who have accounts for both eTAG and webDEALER can now issue tags and create title applications within the same system.

System Requirements

The webDEALER | eTAG system was developed so that it could be readily used in a typical business environment that uses a Windows-based operating system, the most commonly used Web browser, and high-speed broadband (DSL) or cable internet connections. While it is possible to vary from these standards somewhat, for your convenience, we have spelled out the optimal hardware and software environment for dealers below.

Hardware and Software to Optimize webDEALER Performance

  • Internet connection: High-speed broadband (DSL) or cable. (Note: Dial-up and slow broadband connections put you in the slow lane and will require patience.)
  • Computer: Windows Intel Pentium® III or faster (or equivalent processor) with a minimum of 512mb of memory
  • Operating system: Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Vista, or Windows 7
  • Browser: Internet Explorer 9.0 or higher, the most current version of Google Chrome, Safari or Mozilla Firefox. All of these browsers are available free of charge.
  • Printer: Any printer supported by the Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 operating systems, but laser will produce the highest quality.
  • Software: Adobe Reader 8 or higher. You must have Adobe Acrobat® Reader installed on your computer. You can visit Adobe's website to install the latest version of the Adobe Reader for free. Uncheck the box next to “Free Google Toolbar” then click “Download Now” to begin the download. When the download is complete, follow the screen instructions to install Adobe Reader. Please double check the System Requirements section to see if your computer is compliant with Adobe Reader V 8.0 or higher.
