Moneyway has been recognised by the Association of Cycle Traders as its ‘partner of the year’ for its efforts in making the Ride It Away scheme successful.
Handing over an award to Moneyway’s head of lending David Nield at Cycle Show 2010, ACT business development officer Tony Jones told BikeBiz:
“It’s very important to acknowledge the efforts of our 20 or so partners that go to great lengths to improve retailers’ lives through their services. Moneyway stood out, particularly thanks to their efforts to make Ride It Away a success. The firm has enormous flexibility and offers consumers an interest free credit solution, which greatly aids sales.”
TheCyclingExperts.co.uk, the ACT’s consumer-facing website, also shared the focus on the busy ACT stand, receiving a soft-launch and preview to dealers ahead of a fully revamped roll out due shortly.
Jonathan Harrison, marketing and comms exec, told BikeBiz: “Our shop listing data is now shared with Sustrans and the Bike Hub app, which adds great marketing value to a shop listed on the site. Registration of a store’s details is free of charge too, so if a store is yet to log on and post their information, that’s a missed opportunity to gain extra custom.”
Moneyway launched earlier this year.
