Automotive fintech payment provider Bumper has launched the Bumper x Getac collaboration to allow customers to use digital payment options when servicing or repairing their vehicles, offering the choice of PayLater, PayNow, or PayByBank transactions.
Jack Allman, co-founder and CCO of Bumper, said: “We’re delighted to announce the Bumper x Getac partnership and work together to deliver cutting-edge digital solutions in the market. Bumper’s innovative payment solutions are a game-changer for dealerships and enable customers to access our suite of payment solutions easily and securely. We’re proud to collaborate with a fellow innovator like Getac to deliver the best possible digital experience for both dealerships and their customers.”
In conjunction with Bumper’s proprietary AI-powered technology, which facilitates real-time lending decisions and optimises aftersales revenue opportunities, Getac offers widely-used Rugged Computing solutions for diagnostics. Getac also provides AI-based digital tools that enhance service operations, automating workshop loading, job card management, and electronic vehicle health checks.
Russell Younghusband, global automotive director at Getac, said: “I am really pleased to be able to work closely with the great team at Bumper. Getac has looked at the old static booking solutions and health check tools available on the market and raised the bar with our digital aftersales suite, offering AI-powered management tools, voice and live video functionality. Bumper’s innovative approach to digital payment solutions further enhances this, helping OEMs and dealers everywhere deliver an exceptional experience to every customer”.
With the average age of vehicles on the road increasing, customers are often burdened with escalating repair costs. Bumper’s PayLater solution allows customers to divide these costs into interest-free monthly repayments. The integration also includes PayNow and PayByBank technologies, enabling quick, secure, and seamless transactions, thereby saving dealerships from costly card fees.
In addition to the Bumper collaboration, Getac continues to introduce technologies that support frontline users in aftersales, such as the recent launch of embedded customer video calls and voice command & guidance functionalities with its dynamic online service booking platform.
