LEASING broker Octopus Electric Vehicles has partnered with Ebbon-Dacs to use its Leaselink e-procurement platform to source, order, and track all electric vehicles for its customers.

The electric vehicle arm of the Octopus Energy Group was launched in 2018 as a dedicated EV leasing service, with the aim to help grow the UK’s electric vehicle market.

Alongside providing EVs, Octopus Electric Vehicles also sources and installs charge points, and links with the parent energy firm to provide EV-specific electricity tariffs.

It has also recently launched ‘Electric Dreams’ – a salary sacrifice scheme for electric cars that can see driers save between 30% and 60% on monthly car costs – with the package bundling together features such as insurance, accident management, roadside assistance, and end of contract services.

Gurjeet Grewal, operations director at Octopus Electric Vehicles (pictured below), said: “Ebbon-Dacs is the pre-eminent name in this space so the obvious partner to research. The client demonstrations were very good and gave us confidence that Ebbon-Dacs would be the ideal partner to help us achieve our goals.

“Leaselink gives us a streamlined service and instant access to the information we need for our vehicle orders. It provides us with fast and accurate feedback to pass to our drivers and an easy ordering system. It empowers our team to be able to deliver great customer outcomes.

“I don’t think we had anticipated how fast dealers act when using Leaselink. Our NPS (Net Promoter Score) and customer satisfaction has gone through the roof with orders placed in the Leaselink system. Even for manufacturers that don’t support Leaselink, it’s easy to track orders by processing them as manual t-cards in the system.”
