Toyota Financial Services (TFS) has appointed 2nd Byte to develop a web-enabled
information service for the car maker’s UK dealer network.

Once operational in early 2001, dealers will have a point of sale finance system
that will guide car buyers through the range of Toyota Financial Services products
and services.

TFS marketing manager Brian Munday believes showroom staff and customers will
benefit significantly from the initiative:

"We’ll be providing a fully integrated service for our dealers that allows
them to quote finance packages, secure acceptance for the customer and handle
documentation. Another advantage will be the ability to update information quickly,
and automatically alert dealers and customers about promotions and campaigns.”
