E-procurement specialist Ebbon-Dacs has witnessed a doubling in the number of vehicles being delivered and collected through its electronic vehicle delivery and collection solution, MoDel.
In the past 12 months, the volume of vehicle transactions going through the MoDel solution has increased 110%, so it now handles 13,000 vehicle movements per month, mainly through contract hire and leasing companies, associated logistics companies and dealers.
The Oxford-based software solutions provider has also seen an increase in the number of companies using its e-procurement platform Leaselink.
Fifteen of the country’s top 20 contract hire and leasing companies, which are responsible for managing around 830,000 company vehicles, are now Leaselink users.
During the last calendar year, more than 150,000 new vehicles have been sourced, ordered and delivered through the Leaselink system, which is now in its second generation for all users.
The growth reflects an increasing trend towards electronic new vehicle ordering as the market standard in the UK fleet arena, due to advances in technology.
The MoDel solution has been designed to allow Leaselink users to automatically upload all electronic vehicle delivery and collection information directly into the Leaselink platform, thus cutting time, errors and needless administration, and speeding up the time to market.
It is currently being employed by 11 of the UK’s largest contract hire and leasing companies, who are also users of the Leaselink e-procurement platform, to handle their new vehicle deliveries.
Robert Pilkington, director of Ebbon-Dacs, said: “In the last 12 months, we have been particularly pleased with the success of our moDel solution, which fully automates the delivery and collection process around new vehicle transactions.”
