Taking care of the after-sales relationship with your customers – principally but not exclusively service plans – is a vast and specialised operation that requires experience, expertise, infrastructure and sophisticated IT. We manage the entire operation for you. Service plans increase loyalty, keep the sales of parts within your network, allow upselling and lead to repeat car sales and an extended customer relationship. In 2021 we calculate that our most successful partnership generated some £47,183,824 in future potential service revenue. We partner with 16 major vehicle manufacturers.

What our clients say
We have been working with EMaC since 2016 - we chose them as a new partner and over the past two years EMaC have delivered the support and innovation that has enabled us to grow our service plan business further.
With the significant investments in products and technology developments, EMaC have facilitated a stable, flexible and successful platform for us to sell our service plans.
We have recently worked with EMaC to expand our product portfolio, enabling us to sell service plans for used vehicles as well as new. We are just about to embark upon the next phase, which is all about consumer direct so enabling consumers to buy service plans as well as other products through our website.
Toyota and Lexus were the first OEM to collaborate with EMaC and after a decade we are still working together, our relationship has really stood the test of time. The constant support that EMaC offer our dealerships is exceptional. They support in excess of 75% of the Toyota and Lexus network. As a result we use EMaC for our national online service plan provision.
The sale of service plans for both new and used cars within the network has grown significantly over the years and is a key driver of the excellent service retention that we enjoy.
