JARDINE Motors Group has teamed up with online motor finance specialist iVendi to integrate the latest generation of online finance tools into its GForces-built website, helping to improve customer experience and generate more sales.
The firm, one of the largest motor retailers in the UK, launched its new fully responsive website in 2015 using GForces’ NetDirector Auto V10 web platform – the second generation site built in collaboration with the software provider.
With iVendi’s Quoteware and Car Finance Calculator integration, which went live at the beginning of June 2016, used car buyers can now create calculate and compare finance offers that suit their circumstances whilst browsing online.
Alex Brown, head of digital at Jardine Motors Group, said: ‘The website is a huge part of many of our customers’ car buying journeys. With so many now relying on finance to pay for a car, the integration of monthly payment search and finance calculators may provide that additional piece of information that helps crystallise a purchase decision.
‘At Jardine Motors Group our aim is to provide a clear route to purchase from the web to the showroom. The iVendi finance calculator has definitely helped us achieve this.’
Jardine’s Quoteware and Car Finance Calculator integration has been created to reflect the rates and types of finance the group offers to its customers in the showroom. A web visitor can adjust their deposit, payment term and annual mileage to discover monthly payments against a particular vehicle and then check their eligibility.
In addition, with the website’s intelligent responsive design, the feature is available to customers whether they’re browsing on a mobile, tablet or desktop.
Chris Masters, head of business Development at iVendi, added: ‘We’re very pleased to be working with Jardine and GForces on this integration, which over the next few months will become among the most advanced in place at any major dealer group.’
iVendi’s online motor finance tools are now connected to 7,000 dealerships, generating more than one billion finance quotations every day.
