Commercial vehicle dealer group, Imperial Commercials, has reported gains in operating efficiencies after introducing Ebbon-Dacs’ standalone moDel-VM vehicle delivery and collection solution.
MoDel-VM provides the same level of functionality for companies which are responsible for large movements of vehicles, but which are not necessarily members of the Leaselink trading community, including logistics companies, daily rental suppliers and auction houses.
Imperial operates from 39 dealer locations in the UK with seven van franchises – Volkswagen, Mercedes, Ford, Nissan, Isuzu, Fiat and LDV – and five truck franchises – DAF, Mercedes, MAN, Isuzu, and Renault.
The company has used moDel for its Leaselink customers for some time as it is part of their Service Level Agreements, but this marks the first time the company has trialled the stand-alone version for non-Leaselink users. Reported benefits include improvements in efficiency due to using electronic delivery notes and accurate recording of vehicle collections using the system’s camera. It also helps speed up the pre-payment process.
Group corporate sales manager, Rachael Helliwell, commented: “We delivered around 1,100 fleet vehicles last year and will probably deliver in the region of 2,000 vehicles this year. With that volume, we will now be considering using moDel-VM for all our non-Leaselink corporate customers going forward.”
