Sixt Leasing SE digitalises vehicle handover and return process

  • More efficiency and transparency
  • Recording and logging of all steps via smartphone app
  • Roll-out initially at the locations in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich

Pullach, 23 February 2021 - Sixt Leasing SE, a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, is optimizing vehicle handover and return at its locations in Frankfurt-Egelsbach, Berlin-Adlershof and Munich-Eching. From now on, all logistics processes will be recorded digitally in the already launched SML software solution (Service Module Logistics): from the delivery of the new leased vehicle by truck and the handover to the corporate or private customer to the return and collection by the freight forwarder.

In the future, on-site employees will use a new smartphone app for this purpose, which they can use to determine the passages of risk as well as the exact equipment and condition of the vehicle. In the process, they create standardized, comprehensive photo logs. Thus, any transport damage can be recorded as soon as the new vehicle is delivered. The handover or return protocol is also signed using the app: customers simply sign on the smartphone of the employee responsible and receive the signed document by e-mail just a few minutes later.

All recorded data is transmitted automatically and in real time from the app (front-end) to Sixt Leasing's back-end system - and therefore does not need to be entered manually. This saves employees and customers even more time.

Josef Finauer, Managing Director Maintenance & Damage of Sixt Leasing SE: "Thanks to the digital recording of logistics processes, vehicle handover and return at our locations in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich is now even more efficient and transparent. This benefits not only us as lessor, but also our customers in particular. The photo logs created with the smartphone build additional trust."

The new app was developed for Android devices in cooperation with the Hüsges Group. It can be used flexibly and is suitable for vehicle handover and return at any location. Sixt Leasing's goal is to roll out the app at the more than 30 Sixt SE stations where Sixt Leasing customers can pick up or return vehicles.

Tobias Gawor, Director Logistics of Sixt Leasing SE: "The app-based vehicle handover is an important, further step in the consistent digitalisation and automation of our processes. In addition to the positive customer experience, I am particularly pleased for our employees at the stations that we can now provide them with an intuitive and very advanced tool. And our back office and logistics partners will also benefit from the faster and automated availability of all relevant information. As a result, we now no longer use paper at all in our standard processes. We will also be scaling up and expanding the use of the app for vehicle handovers at our dealerships and doorstep deliveries over the course of the year."

Peter Damme, Senior Manager Product Management of Sixt Leasing SE: "With the SML, we were able to build a cloud software platform with which we can quickly develop new logistics processes and have the option of digitally connecting our internal contract software as well as external service providers. We have already achieved this with great success in the deregistration process. The next feature is already in preparation and will follow shortly as an SML update. This will enable us to optimize further processes."
