Leading personalised customer video provider to the automotive industry, PECUVi has announced its latest integration with finance provider Payment Assist as part of its upgraded My Service Trust solution.
With over 300,000 processed applications at a 98% customer acceptance rate, Payment Assist is one of the automotive industries’ most respected finance providers. This latest integration into the My Service Trust solution, gives the customer the convenience of having their iVHC video and 0% finance application sent directly to their smartphone, providing a seamless and truly contactless experience.
Workshops are able to quickly create and send a personalised video of the repairs directly to the customer’s pocket via text message or email, with the option for the customer to instantly sign-up for finance and split their repair bill over four monthly instalments, interest and hassle free. Easing the burden of the unexpected repair bill customers may have as a result of a Service or MOT.
To ensure an informed, seamless and discrete experience, integration has been designed with the customer in mind. The customer will receive a text message or email with a video link detailing the repairs to be carried out, alongside a quote for the works with the option to authorise the work and quickly sign-up to the interest free finance, all from the customer landing page.
Ben Smith, Director and Co-Founder at PECUVi commented: “With demand for servicing and MOTs on the rise, we are delighted to announce our latest integration with one of the sectors leading finance providers. With video already proven to increase workshop sales by up to 25% and assist in delivering a safe and contactless service, the added functionality of being able to allow customers to discretely sign-up to 0% interest finance and then pay over four secure payments (rather than one lump sum) is something that benefits everyone, especially in the current climate.”
Neil Jeffery, Managing Director at Payment Assist commented: “Our integration into PECUVi’s My Service Trust product is a really exciting development. 98% of our customers are accepted for finance via a soft credit check and with the agreement being made with us directly, there is zero risk, as the payment is assured to the garage before the work even starts. All this without having to come face to face with the customer and cutting down on unbilled workshop hours.”
At a challenging time when customers can’t afford unexpected repair costs, this enhanced and innovative solution offers peace of mind and ultimate convenience when ensuring their vehicle is safe and reliable on the road at an affordable price.
