Integrating vehicle leasing and finance systems with Sandicliffe


When Sandicliffe Motor Contracts looked for a new software solution to manage their vehicle leasing business, they needed a finance system that could integrate with whatever solution they chose.

Background

bluQube first came to the attention of Sandicliffe through their relationship with the vehicle leasing solution provider Drive, a bluQube software partner. Through our partnership bluQube provides selected Drive customers with a system to process the financial transactions associated with their leases.

Therefore when Sandicliffe implemented Drive, their previous leasing solution, they were able to utilise certain bluQube functionality for lease transactions through their existing Drive contract.

 

Time for change

When the time came to change their leasing solution, Sandicliffe knew that they didn't want to lose the bluQube system they already used, instead choosing to grow that relationship and work with us directly.

 

The solution

Line drawing on two people at a computerWe worked with Sandicliffe to build a new, direct relationship, which allowed them to utilise new functionality they hadn't previously had access to. First things first, we started with an upgrade to bluQube 4, an all new modern bluQube system to the older version they had known. We were able to implement this on top of their existing database, ensuring all their historical data remained intact, yet accessed via the new, modern software.

During this process, Sandicliffe also migrated on to bluQube's secure cloud hosting platform, which provides them with regular software upgrades, ensuring they are always operating on the latest bluQube version going forward.

 

"With bluQube 4, I like that I can request enhancements, and if they're helpful to other customers too they go on a list to be built."

By joining the rest of bluQube's customers on bluQube 4, Sandicliffe now have an opportunity to shape the product going forward, with the ability to submit enhancement requests to be considered for development. However, unlike many software providers, bluQube don't role out changes on a bespoke, single customer basis. Instead rolling out enhancements product wide, for all customers to reap the benefits of. In turn, this means Sandicliffe is now operating on a new system, shaped by years of feedback and enhancements from other bluQube users.

Furthermore, with bluQube built on interoperable web services technology, Sandicliffe now remain free to choose the best leasing solution for their needs. Leaving them safe in the knowledge that once implemented, financial data can be shared between the systems in real-time.
