Customers of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services (MBFS) in Singapore can now submit their finance application online at their own convenience with the new Online Credit Application service.
Since the service is integrated into the existing Financial Calculator function on the MBFS website, it allows users to browse Mercedes-Benz vehicles of their choice and view the monthly finance or leasing rate.
Once the user selects their preferred vehicle and financing terms, they will be asked to complete an online finance form, which can be pre-populated by logging into their Facebook of LinkedIn account. Upon approval, successful applicants will be notified via their pre-approval email, which needs to be shown to the dealership.
According to MBFS, both the Online Credit Application and Financial Calculator will help deliver a seamless customer experience, as well as drive sales and generate leads for Mercedes-Benz dealers.
"As customers increasingly move online for their car buying decisions, it is only natural that we have a growing suite of digital applications to cater to their needs. The best customers are well-informed customers," said Wolfgang Huppenbauer, President and CEO for Southeast Asia, Daimler (the parent group of MBFS).
Plans are underway to roll out the Online Credit Application capability across the remaining Daimler Financial Services Africa and Asia Pacific markets.
