Catalogue

The smooth interaction of product and financing offers – without media disruptions – is a prerequisite for an optimised customer journey in the digital world. This includes the fast retrieval of asset data, including additional detailed information. The Catalogue module group of afb Credit Management Solution (afb-CMS) provides a powerful asset database for the selection and configuration of financing and leasing assets. In the automotive sector, the module group has a comprehensive data catalogue with more than 170,000 vehicles and more than 2 million equipment features for all passenger cars of the last ten years available on the German market, including standard and non-standard equipment.

The Catalogue module group is linked directly to the Retail Finance and Wholesale Finance module groups so that a specified asset can be easily adopted and processed further. This considerably facilitates the provision of quotations and loan applications in the financing and leasing business.

Features Catalogue

  • Provision of comprehensive asset data for financial and other services providers, manufacturers and vendors, e.g. from the areas of vehicle, small-ticket or equipment for B2B and B2C sales channels
  • Enablement of sound advice at the point of sale through immediately available, detailed and up-to-date information
  • Specifically in the automotive sector: providing detailed vehicle data, manufacturer's data such as make, type, model, manufacturer's code, DAT or EurotaxSchwacke code, engine and car body data as well as manufacturer's standard equipment
  • Convenient asset configuration and selection as the basis for retail and wholesale financing
    Selection of special and supplementary equipment provided by the manufacturer and retailer, including automatic consideration in the pricing
  • Optional linking of the asset data with asset-specific conditions and residual values at the brand, series or type level via the Administration module group

 

Advantages at a glance

  • Support at the POS: quickly available, detailed and always up-to-date asset information provides business partners with optimum support at the point of sale during their consulting and selling efforts.
  • Easier data input: data from the Catalogue module group can be directly transferred to Retail and Wholesale Financing and are thus immediately available for the subsequent credit and lease calculation.
  • Flexible search: user-friendly search mechanisms with predefined filters in combination with individual search and sorting criteria support the user in the search and selection of assets.

     

    • Link to conditions/residual values: individual conditions and residual values can easily be linked to the asset data at the brand, series or type level.
    • External interfaces: asset information from suppliers of European motor vehicle data as well as any data from the areas of small ticket and equipment can at any time be imported via interfaces and through the connection of manufacturer catalogues.
