What Richard Sanders wanted

Richard Sanders wanted to manage finance across all their UK franchise websites. As they work with multiple lenders, they needed a partner who could replicate their rates and terms.

They wanted their customers to be able to personalise finance for their chosen vehicle, new or used, with the solution operating seamlessly across all their sites, and apply for finance based on the vehicle they were interested in with applications fed into a finance POS system. They also wanted customers to be able to check their eligibility for credit based upon their vehicle search and ultimately reserve their vehicle direct from their website.

What we did

1

A new search option

Our approach enables customers to search the Richard Sanders website for a vehicle by monthly budget rather than just by model or price.

Plugged in to customer needs

Once the customer has determined their monthly budget they can access price and finance for each vehicle on the listings page. They can then click through to a Codeweavers calculator to personalise their finance options further. The calculator was built with plugin technology for straightforward integration into the Richard Sanders website. It is super quick, Richard Sanders-branded and highly informative, incorporating how-to videos to explain the different finance options available.

Making buying easier

When the customer is happy with a finance quote, they can go on to pre-check if they are likely to be accepted for finance using the Codeweavers Motor Credit Check tool and apply for finance there and then. Not only that but, to ensure no one else can buy the vehicle, Codeweavers has added a ‘Reserve it Now’ button so that the customer can reserve the car by placing a deposit.
