Bumper has integrated with Keyloop’s car dealer management systems to facilitate the provision of digital aftersales payments.
Bumper, which was officially launched in April after being re-branded from Auto Service Finance, has been made available across both Autoline and Drive dealer management systems (DMS) through the new integration – providing access to its digital Buy Now, Pay Later and PayNow services.
The move also sees Bumper joining Keyloop’s International Partner Programme, becoming the first business to offer digital aftersales payment services.
Vertu Motors, one of the UK’s largest dealer groups, became the first franchised network to go live with Bumper on its Keyloop DMS.
“Integrating with Keyloop is a major step for us as we increase our footfall across the UK,” said Jack Allman, chief commercial officer and co-founder of Bumper.
Allman, who was the subject of a recent AM ‘5 minutes with…’ supplier interview feature, added: “The integration makes it even easier for dealers using Keyloop to offer aftersales customers more affordable, convenient and secure ways to pay their servicing, maintenance and repair bills.”
Jules Grinnell, global partner director at Keyloop, said: “We’re delighted to extend our relationship with Bumper through Keyloop’s Partner Programme.
“The integration between Keyloop and Bumper will allow service advisors to process 0% finance for customers in just a couple of clicks.
“The solution will pass through any available necessary data and improve the quality and accuracy of the data processed by Bumper, meaning more work is approved in a quicker, more efficient manner.”
Bumper secured a £10m flexible working capital facility from Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance back in May to help support its growth plans.
Its growth strategy has seen it become the eighth fastest growing company in the 2021 FT1000.
