Ebbon-Dacs has invested in new functionality for commercial vehicle convertors and the introduction of a new look and feel for its second generation Leaselink platform.
A growing number of commercial vehicles are now passing through the Leaselink system in both the public and private sectors, especially following the recruitment of public sector leasing specialist, Automotive Leasing, to the community of major leasing companies that use Leaselink.
Now, to better facilitate the tracking of commercial vehicles in the conversion stage, Ebbon-Dacs is finalising the development of a new third party module specifically for commercial vehicle convertors and fitment specialists.
This allows leasing companies to track the progress of any new commercial vehicles that have been ordered but which require converting to meet the fleet customer’s specific requirements. This includes straightforward conversions such as racking or ply-lining to more specialist jobs like adding cherry pickers or heavy lifting gear.
The new third party module provides leasing companies with total transparency of the progress being made within the conversion process, and shows users exactly where in the system the vehicle is, and how long before it is finished and ready for delivery to the customer.
At the same time, the third party module benefits from a new modern look and feel inspired by the latest consumer systems on the market. This will help improve the user experience from a visual perspective without detracting from its functional capability, and will keep to an ethos of minimum “clicks”, simplicity and flexibility.
This new look for Leaselink will be rolled out gradually across the whole platform, with the trademark home page next in line for redevelopment so that, by early next year, much of the core system will have been redesigned, with new capabilities for fleet users a priority throughout the programme.
Robert Pilkington, Managing Director of the Leaselink International division of Ebbon-Dacs, said: “Our new third party module will allow end users to track commercial vehicles with total transparency once they enter the conversion process and will fill in the black hole that existed before. New developments, like gaining type approval, will be added at a later date.
“We regularly review the development of Leaselink with our leasing company and dealer users to ensure it meets their demands and this third party module was one of the first things they requested, as they felt there was a lack of transparency around the conversion process."
