LeasePlan has created a new customer website across its specialist small business and private individual franchisee brand – Network.
Network launched www.networkvehicles.com, its first consumer-facing website, at its annual conference, which took place this month at Whittlebury Hall and was attended by over 150 delegates.
As well as giving an easy-to-follow introduction to a variety of funding products, the site helps to answer the most frequently asked Network customer questions, specifically those relating to contracts.
Finding a Network franchisee on the site is completed using an interactive map, which can be broken down by region or county depending on the level of locality required by the site visitor.
From there, selecting the franchisee of choice, checking their BVRLA credentials and selecting the preferred method of contact takes just a few clicks.
In an effort to make leasing with a Network franchisee even easier, the organisation has teamed up with leading publication What Car? to integrate detailed car reviews into the site.
The site also highlights the work of the BVRLA within the leasing industry and offers an insight into the cooperation between Network and the BVRLA to develop a highly comprehensive auditing process.
With around 60,000 vehicles on the road in the UK and strong growth seen in recent years, the depth of this new site is a clear sign of Network’s ambitions for its 100-strong group of franchisees.
Jo Elms, brand director at Network, said: “We’re committed to investing in our IT systems and providing support for our franchisees.
“The new website will enable our existing and prospective customers a simpler way to contact Network franchisees.
“The site also acts as a fantastic platform to demonstrate the outstanding qualities which make our franchisees stand out from their competitors.”
News of this website launch comes only a week after the successful launch of the Sunrise order management software, which allows Network franchisees to effectively handle and deliver up to 600,000 customer quotes each year.
