CIMB claims the app to be the first auto financing platform of its kind in Malaysia, empowering car dealers to execute fast, secure and seamless digital application submissions and processing for auto financing.

With the CIMB Auto Dealer App, car dealers can submit financing applications anytime and anywhere, with a real-time submission tracking feature that updates dealers on the status at every stage of the process.

The solution is introduced to ease customers’ car purchasing journey and decision-making, while simplifying and expediting the auto financing submission process for car dealers. CIMB claims the one-minute approval time for applicants is the fastest in the market today.

In order to accelerate the rollout, CIMB has partnered with Carsome, Southeast Asia’s largest integrated car e-commerce platform, with 15 Carsome Experience Centers already onboarded with the CIMB Auto Dealer App to support CARSOME’s customers on their vehicle financing needs. With the success of the initial rollout, the bank plans to roll out the app to more new and used car dealerships nationwide.
