VW Credit Canada, Inc. (VCCI), the captive finance division for the Volkswagen Group in Canada, has expanded its partnership with DataScan Field Services to include off lease inspection services. DataScan has been performing floorplan audits for VCCI since 2012 and for VW Credit Inc. in the United States since 2008.

DataScan was selected for its comprehensive knowledge of the Canadian auto market and end-of-lease requirements. It was also chosen for its thorough inspection process and its fully committed and engaged management support.

“We are very pleased to expand our partnership with VCCI, which is a recognized and respected brand in Canada,” said Brent Sergot, President of DataScan. “DataScan is well positioned to assist with their continued success.” 

One of the largest vehicle inspection and audit companies in North America, DataScan offers expertise in working with major OEMs, captive finance companies, banks and leasing companies in Canada. DataScan also provides wholesale management system services.

“For more than 15 years, DataScan has continued to build a professional, well-trained field force of inspectors, cultivate dedicated client relations support and create a first-class operations group,” said Richard Carpentier, Managing Director for DataScan’s Canadian Operations. “This extensive experience also gives us a deeper understanding of how critical it is to provide transparency in the end-of-lease process.”

DataScan is focused on servicing clients in Canada with a bi-lingual staff who can assist lessees in French or English. It also has two regional offices in Toronto and Montreal dedicated to providing support. Additionally, DataScan offers its clients special features, such as an online scheduling tool which helps both dealers and lessees coordinate the inspection and end-of-lease process.

“VCCI is committed to providing our customers and dealers with excellent service, innovative processes and state-of-the art-technology,” said Eric Bélanger, General Manager of the Canada Service Centre for VCCI. “The quality of DataScan’s inspection services is a valuable asset in maintaining our commitment to our customers and dealers.”
