What our clients say

Snows Motor Group have chosen EMaC for a number of reasons.
First and foremost - the ease and accuracy of pricing a complex mix of vehicle service specifications and mileage flexibility is significantly more efficient than other similar competitors.

The experience EMaC have over many years has enabled them to 'fine tune' their operation which has now become extremely sophisticated.
The support from Field Staff and office based operational support is immediate, accurate and always friendly.

Having had brief experience of other operators in this field, we feel EMaC are 'Head & Shoulders' clear in every meaningful category and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

— Phil Maddison, Group Board Director, Snows Motor Group Ltd

When we looked into Service Plan providers we had three key objectives to achieve:
- Easy to use system
- Minimal administration resource required from ourselves
- Excellent customer service

EMaC ticked all of the boxes and has exceeded our expectations ever since. Their understanding of the importance of customer retention to Motorline is very apparent and I have a great relationship with our dedicated Account Manager. They handle all of our customer enquiries with exceptional professionalism and if we ever do need their support we know they are only ever a phone call away.

— Thomas Obee, Managing Director, Motorline

In partnership with EMaC we have been selling Service Plans for many years allowing us to build up a large number of active customers that we can rely on every year to have their car serviced with RRG.

The process works like clockwork with everything handled through the Evolve system. Quoting and selling is simple and quick and the system gives us flexibility to handle many other functions ourselves; taking payments, balance transfers and cancellations for example.

The EMaC team support us in every area of admin and field support allowing us to concentrate on selling the Service Plans and our relationship with their dealer support team is excellent.

— Steve Walsh, Aftersales Director, RRG Group

Pendragon have been in partnership with EMaC for around 8 years. We see Service Plans as a key tool for customer retention and by working with EMaC we are able to maximise our performance in this area resulting in increased revenue from guaranteed service work.
