Last June BCA (British Car Auctions) commenced a pilot scheme for the implementation of White Clarke Group’s Wholesale Finance Solution (CALMS) throughout its UK operations.

In the UK, BCA remarkets more than 12,000 vehicles a week in physical and online auctions and, as Europe’s largest vehicle marketplace, sells over 1 million vehicles annually.

The first year of BCA’s wholesale finance business has proved highly successful and the implementation of CALMS is enabling BCA to increase its penetration of the market. The dealer funding service, BCA Partner Finance, has been well received by its customers as it is easy to use and helps them grow their business. 

Implemented in 12 weeks, CALMS is proving a strategic advantage in the development of BCA’s vehicle finance business.

The CALMS solution is specifically designed to help vehicle retailers manage the end-to-end stocking and wholesale financing of dealer inventory and is built around the latest web technology. There are no add-ons, no front-end fix, no compromise. CALMS is fully web-based to its core.

The system is easier to integrate, easier to customize and easier for trading partners to work as one.

Implemented in 12 weeks, CALMS is proving a strategic advantage in the development of BCA’s vehicle finance business.

“We are delighted with the success of this implementation and are especially pleased that our wholesale platform is proving so successful in the market. This is yet another endorsement of our CALMS product strategy and our desire to combine a great product with international best practice and expertise.” Brendan Gleeson, Group Executive Vice President, White Clarke Group.
