FLEET PROCURE has added four additional leasing brokers to its platform during Q1.
Taking the membership of the vehicle procurement system to 30 partners are:
- Buckinghamshire-based Bowater Price along with its PCH brand, VehicleFlex;
- Norfolk-based Pure Vehicle Leasing;
- Just Drive Leasing from Kent;
- and Surrey-based First Vehicle Finance.
With the additional brokers on boarded, Fleet Procure saw a record order take of 5877 new vehicle orders in Q1, despite the challenging market conditions. A dealer representing only two brands also became the first to exceed 500 orders in any one quarter.
Lee Jones, founder and managing director commented:
“We are excited to be working with four new brokers who are established players in the market. This once again demonstrates the power of the Fleet Procure brand and platform in the leasing broker space to attract such quality businesses.”
Explaining why Pure Vehicle Leasing was attracted to the vehicle purchasing system, Damian Smith, a Pure Vehicle Leasing co-director, said:
With five years trading under our belt we were looking for a procurement platform to complement our current funders, and enhance opportunities with suppliers where historically we’ve not been prominent. Following two meetings with Lee and Arron Mogridge at Fleet Procure, we took the very easy decision to come on board as a partner in March this year.
Fellow director Ben Lawson (pictured) added:
The system really does provide a one stop shop from beginning to end with suppliers representing all brands, a very simple messaging system that makes communication extremely easy and campaign/available stock pages so we can get vehicles to market quicker than most. It’s early days but we can honestly say we will go forward stronger with Fleet Procure by our side.
