Above and beyond expectations  


In 2018, Standard Bank set its sights on becoming the leader in the African vehicle and asset financing market, having identified this as a missing key part from its automotive and commercial value chain. To succeed in this field, the bank decided it needed to invest in wholesale finance and subsequently introduced a dealer floorplan system. 

Standard Bank required a system to help its clients grow their businesses across the continent through a flexible way of financing their assets. This had to span across the entire automotive and commercial ecosystem to fulfill its vision of offering automotive manufacturers, distributors and their dealer networks a single partner, providing comprehensive vehicle and asset finance capabilities across the African continent.

As well as Apak’s global footprint, its extensive market knowledge and expertise within the South African region was very appealing, and the flexibility offered by the WFS platform allowed for a quick delivery, which met, and exceeded, the core requirements needed for the project to be delivered successfully.”
