Suzuki and UDC Finance Deliver New Dealer Finance Products

Media Release

Suzuki and UDC Finance Deliver New Dealer Finance Products

Suzuki New Zealand and UDC Finance have joined forces to provide Suzuki Finance-branded products across their dealer network.

With sales for the Suzuki brand in New Zealand increasing, and new company requirements around dealership floor plans and bailment, Suzuki New Zealand needed to strengthen their financing proposition in order to achieve their strategic vision for the company.

On April 18 UDC Finance took over the provision of wholesale and retail products for motor vehicles and motorcycles across Suzuki’s network of 80 dealerships.

UDC’s CEO Tessa Price says: “We’re excited to work more closely with one of New Zealand’s fastest-growing vehicle and motorcycle brands. We’ve got 75 years’ experience financing New Zealand vehicles and this partnership is another demonstration of our commitment to the industry.”

The partnership will enable Suzuki dealers to access UDC Live, an online application and information platform, and take advantage of UDC’s ability to integrate with distributor stock management systems allowing for automated invoicing and stock swaps.

UDC Finance will also provide Suzuki dealers with finance sales training and industry benchmarking information.

In the run up to National Agricultural Fieldays (12-15 June 2013), Suzuki are again offering their popular 0% financing option across most of their motor vehicle range.
