moDel-VM brings major efficiencies for vehicle logistics firm
Launched in 2015 as a standalone version of the moDel vehicle delivery and collection solution, moDel-VM completely automates the new vehicle delivery and used vehicle collection process.
In the case of Vehicle Connections, which provides services for around 100 dealerships on behalf of most of the UK’s major contract hire and leasing companies, the tool has enabled the firm to aggregate new vehicle deliveries on one platform rather than a number of different methods.
CEO and transport director Nathan Parry commented: “Prior to using moDel-VM, we had been using an assortment of manual point of collection and point of delivery paperwork for different lease companies, which meant that it could sometimes take several days for delivery details to find their way back to us, and often there would be disputes.
“Now everything is recorded electronically, we can generate the appropriate paperwork ourselves and are completely in control of the vehicle delivery process. We can track deliveries from start to finish and disputes are a thing of the past.
“We are also able to invoice daily which speeds up payments and are now looking at new developments with Ebbon-Dacs including integrating model-VM with our back office Sage accounting system,” he said.
“MoDel-VM has helped us bring our vehicle logistics business into the 21st century,” he added.
