taq Automotive Intelligence (taq), a Canadian-based firm specializing in automotive retail technology, today announced its general partnership contract with electric vehicle manufacturer VinFast Canada. Under their agreement, taq will deliver an intelligence-based, white-labeled digital retailing solution, enabling VinFast consumers to move seamlessly from vehicle ordering to financing and delivery.
“We are excited to solidify this partnership with VinFast,” says Alan H. Bird, Chairman and CEO of taq. “Our business philosophy and early adaption to a digital automotive marketplace aligns well with VinFast’s direct-to-consumer model. We firmly believe that by continuously modernizing the customer buying journey, we will push the industry in the right direction.”
taq’s offering will leverage the connectivity of their digital retailing solution with their intuitive credit portal to provide VinFast customers autonomy to configure finance payments, submit credit applications and stipulated documents, and digitally sign contracts.
