Bringing Captive Finance Business Back In-house
After 12 Years, Motor Vehicle Manufacturer Turns to Asset Finance
A purpose-driven motor vehicle manufacturer company was looking to reimagine how to deliver more cohesive relationships, build higher-performing teams and find solutions where others don’t. And they wanted to do so by re-entering the asset finance market.
Their core business is the truck and parts markets for the U.S. and Canada, participating primarily in the Class 6 through 8 vehicle markets. With more than a million trucks on the road in the U.S. and Canada, one in five Class 6 through 8 vehicles is an International® truck. Nearly half of all school buses on the road today are their IC Bus® brand. In fact, they have one of the largest commercial vehicle parts distribution networks in the U.S. and a captive finance company.
The client had discontinued their captive finance business 12 years ago and outsourced to banks for financing and account servicing. The new owner decided to restart their captive finance business making this project a de facto greenfield. The client utilized Scania as a positive FIS® reference and pointed the company to evaluate Asset Finance for their new captive finance operations.
To be successful, the company wanted to achieve the following:
- Standup front office operations and deploy an Origination Portal in the client's dealerships by Q3 2023.
- Establish full-scale operations supporting their dealer and customer clients, including call center, collections and full back-office on the same timeline.
- Consolidate front-office and back-office platforms in 2024.
