During the vehicle purchasing process, customers are required to read and sign contract documentation while providing identity and other required documents to complete their finance application. Many companies still rely on paper documents and fax machines, but in some sectors this can cause bottlenecks. We designed and developed a phone and tablet app to allow dealers to send signed documents back to Volkswagen Financial Service over the internet.

In highly regulated industries, even more care needs to be take to ensure that communications are secured. We built a highly secured mobile app and secure APIs to run on the customer's servers and integrate with their finance platform to remove process bottlenecks and speed up the delivery of vehicles to customers. Additionally, the quality of documents received was far higher than by fax reducing the number of times documents has to be resubmitted.

We received outstanding feedback both from within Volkswagen Financial Services and from dealerships we spoke with. Our app has become a critical part of their software platform.

  • Integration with bespoke asset finance platform.
