“The launch of juhu.auto marks a milestone in our strategy to support our retail partners with highly effective digital solutions. Our platform provides car dealers with a highly attractive sales channel focused on their specific needs while at the same time delivering an exceptional user experience for car buyers. It will, we believe, make a major impact on the dealer motor finance sector and we are looking forward to seeing the results it produces in the months and years to come.”
Dr Hermann FrohnhausBank Deutsches Kraftfahrzeuggewerbe (BDK)

They identify the key pain-points in the financing journey and have built solutions to help their clients overcome them. Working with iVendi provides a more transparent and accessible financing journey for our customers, meeting and exceeding the standards of other leading consumer retail sites to allow the user to search on their own terms, rather than us asking them to do all of the hard work.“
