Atlanta, GA, United States, 2012/07/17 - DataScan Field Services recently launched a new online scheduling tool that gives its captive and financial institution clients a convenient way for their lessees to schedule end-of-lease vehicle inspections.
With this new tool, customers of participating financial institutions will have the ability to quickly and easily make their inspection appointments via the web. The new service is being introduced to the off-lease market at no additional charge for existing DataScan clients who rely on the company to provide transparency to their customers during the off-lease inspection process. DataScan is one of the industry’s largest off-lease vehicle inspection and automotive floorplan inventory verification companies. By introducing the interactive service, DataScan continues to help captive lending and traditional financial institutions pioneer services to meet the demands of today’s leasing market.
“We are continuously looking for innovative ways to effectively and efficiently serve our clients,” said Matt Powell, vice president of DataScan. “This online scheduling tool was designed to make the end-of-lease experience as convenient as possible for lessees, while providing them with valuable information as early as possible in the process.”
Captive lending and traditional financial institutions participating in the scheduling program can now choose to make the new online feature available for lease customers approaching the end of term by providing the appropriate links on their website or through consumer communications. The lessees can then select the date, time and location that are most convenient. Additionally, they can opt to receive 24-hour or 48-hour electronic reminder messages either by text, email or both.
Existing DataScan Field Services clients can enable the new tool for their lessees by contacting their DataScan representative.
