Supporting Irish businesses
Lombard, as part of Ulster Bank Ireland DAC, are specialists in asset finance. We are committed to supporting businesses in the Republic of Ireland and have a range of asset finance solutions that could help businesses reach their growth potential.
Whether your business is large or small, we could help you source, acquire and manage the assets you need. We fund a wide range of assets including vehicles, plant and machinery, equipment and technology.
We have a nationwide team of specialist relationship managers who have experience across a wide variety of sectors. They will work with you to gain a clear understanding of your requirements and tailor a finance package to meet your specific business needs.
How it works
Asset finance, in contrast to traditional loans, could make it easier to raise funds for additional business needs. Our funding solutions could help you get the vehicles or equipment you need to grow your business.
By using the asset as security and paying a regular amount to use the asset over an agreed period, you could avoid the full cost of buying upfront – freeing up your working capital.
Lombard have excellent relationships across a wide variety of asset suppliers and motor dealers and deliver a prompt and efficient service.
CarsIreland.ie launch 2020 Car Dealership Awards in Association with Lombard
CarsIreland.ie is delighted to launch its 2020 Dealer Awards. The awards, in their sixth year, will again be sponsored by Ulster Bank’s Lombard, which specialises in asset finance. This is the second year of their collaboration.
There are three award categories – Best Presented Cars, Best Online Marketing and Best Use of Social Media. Car dealers will be ranked on the quality of the photographs and descriptions of stock on CarsIreland.ie, their online presence and use of social media for sales and brand-building.
Ger Toher, Chief Commercial Officer of CarsIreland.ie said;
“We are delighted to have Ulster Bank’s Lombard on board as sponsors for a second year as these awards enter their sixth year. We had a huge number of entries in 2019 and we look forward to working with Ulster Bank’s Lombard again as we continue to encourage and support our network of over 1,200 dealers.”
Donal Walsh, Head of Motor Finance for Ulster Bank’s Lombard said;
“Ulster Bank’s Lombard is delighted to support the 2020 Dealer Awards for the second year running. We know it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to support customers well, ultimately helping to build trust and long-lasting relationships. Our Consumer Motor Finance team works hard to maintain close partnerships with motor dealers around the country, enabling customers to secure the perfect vehicle that fits their needs. I look forward to seeing this year’s entries.”
The overall winners will attend an awards ceremony in Dublin in December 2020.
Best Presented Cars - This will be judged on the quality of the photographs and descriptions of stock on CarsIreland.ie – taking into account consistency, creativity, and quantity of information supplied. It’s also important that stock is kept up to date and all information entered is accurate. Special attention is paid to consistency and any efforts made to stand out from competitors via branding, video etc.
Best Online Marketing - This takes into account not just the above but also the overall online presence including your website, search visibility and utilisation of new technology and tools that help streamline the customer experience online.
Best Use of Social Media - This will be judged on the best use of social media as both a sales and brand-building tool. Special attention will be paid to regularity of posting and balance when it comes to content. Ideally posts should keep customers both informed and engaged.
