Cutting-edge technologies that connect manufacturers to retailers and lender partners
This connection is vital to successful modern retailing.
As consumers become more comfortable with digital vehicle buying journeys, the sales process has to keep pace.
And the complexities of selling to customers that may want to complete all, some or none of the purchase online requires clever systems to meet increasingly varied customer needs.
Create a bespoke end-to-end sales journey that connects you to your network and makes buying easier for your customers.
Bespoke vehicle retailing technology
A fully connected platform
Consumer habits are changing. People have more choice in the marketplace than ever before. Optimised to capture consumers at different stages of the vehicle buying journey, iVendi's powerful lead generation tools turn website visitors into highly qualified finance leads. Your retailers can convert these leads with a connected sales platform that moves buyers further down the sales funnel.
Managing the whole finance journey
We put finance at the forefront, producing high quality leads from consumers who are ready to buy. They can self-serve much of the finance journey, pre-qualify their eligibility, compare multiple finance options and apply for finance in their own time. Retailers can monitor the entire journey, edit, and update quotes and submit finance applications directly to lenders through a user-friendly platform integrated with both online and showroom tools.
Data drives results, and iVendi’s platform gives you a wealth of data containing valuable information around consumer activity, trends, and desires. This insight reflects what real customers are searching for, how people are moving through the buying journey, which finance products are best for them and various other data points designed to help you make better business decisions.

Connecting manufacturers to the consumer & finance journey
Empowering the consumer
A growing number of prospective customers are willing and even want to conduct more of their purchase journey online, in some cases without setting foot in a showroom until they collect their vehicle.
Manufacturer solutions from iVendi are optimised to cater to consumers at all stages of the vehicle buying journey, connecting lenders, retailers and manufacturers to buyers no matter where they are.
Omni-channel retail tools capture shoppers at the research stage with intelligent smart search allowing users to search by keyword and presenting a wider range of potential choices, before progressing buyers into the decision stage with finance-based lead generation technology.
Lead generation and smart search products easily integrate into manufacturer and retailer websites and connect online sales to showroom processes through an innovative deal management platform.
Better buying journeys
Online shopping is at its best when it’s simple.
Customer routes to purchase are diverse and complex, and the best buying journeys allow buyers to choose how much or how little they want to do online.
Increasingly savvy online shoppers aren’t approaching purchasing decisions in the same ways they used to.
Using the right technology provides a modern retail experience for modern car buyers and allows manufacturers to deliver digital solutions that match the best online retailers.
