The project has delivered some significant cost and efficiency benefits

ACF Car Finance Ltd has announced the completion - under budget and a week ahead of schedule - of an ambitious upgrade to its business management software!

The company, which specialises in providing quality used cars and car finance for 100s of customers every month, has upgraded from Kalamazoo-Reynolds' PC-Attach, to the new and improved Windows-based POWER software.

ACF Car Finance Training Support Manager, Henry Stimpson commented: "The project has delivered some significant cost and efficiency benefits, and superb management reporting across the business’ eight-branch network."

"For example, we can now run multiple deals much more effectively. What's more, POWER is a much more intuitive system so that training new users will be a great deal quicker and easier as we expand the business."

Henry continued: "The system provides a more in-depth analysis of individual cost centres which enables us to further improve efficiencies whilst investing strategically for future development."

He added: "Upgrading a system that is so integral to our business operations was always going to present us with a few challenges but the team at Kalamazoo-Reynolds working alongside our own IT department performed magnificently to achieve this result."
