Volkswagen Group Leasing has confirmed 30 client wins in the first month of trading with a new automotive self-service deal for public sector fleet users.

Covering organisations such as the National Health Service, local authorities and government ministries, new clients include Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust and NHS Blood & Transport.

Volkswagen Group Leasing was shortlisted as one off the preferred government suppliers in the Buying Solutions contract bidding process in early 2011. At the end of May, Volkswagen Group Leasing launched its online CALMS2 procurement solution, which has since generated more than 25000 quotes.

Graham Wheeler, managing director of Volkswagen Financial Services and Volkswagen Group Leasing, said; "This is an exciting time for VGL and it was impressive to see our first month's trading deliver such a wide range of clients. The top brand ordered was SKODA but, typical of VGL's multi-marque solution, orders were placed for vehicles from over 15 brands."

Volkswagen Financial services implemented the CALMS2 fleet management platform form White Clarke Group.

Ed White, Chairman, White Clarke Group: "This whole project has very much been one of partnership, the way we like to work with all our clients. And its modern object-oriented architecture makes CALMS2 an ideal candidate for any fleet management undertaking, particularly where significant bespoke work may be required. We are delighted to have had this opportunity to help VWFS open up a rich new seam of sales opportunities."
