ADESA UK scores a hat-trick at the 2020 Business Car and Motor Finance Europe Awards!

ADESA NEWS | 6 NOV, 2020

We’re delighted to announce that ADESA UK has recently won THREE more prestigious industry awards!

Virtual awards ceremonies took place in October and honoured ADESA UK with these highly coveted trophies:

  • Motor Finance Europe Fleet Services Provider of the Year Award
  • Motor Finance Europe Digital Innovation of the Year (Fleet) Award
  • Business Car Best Innovation Award


Winning across all these categories is an honour that acknowledges the hard work of the entire ADESA UK team over the last 12 months.

And what a year it’s been!

This time last year, ADESA UK was pretty much a lone voice in the digital-only remarketing arena, delivering cutting-edge technology to empower our growing customer base of leasing companies, finance houses, OEMs and company car fleets to defleet end of contract vehicles in real-time and reduce total cost of disposal.

Fast forward to now, and digital remarketing has become the prime route to the wholesale market as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a digital-only specialist, we have consistently deployed the latest technology to assist clients with their remarketing needs—factors that have not gone unnoticed by the judging panels at Business Car and Motor Finance Europe.


Our ADESA UPSTREAM online triumphed at the Motor Finance Europe Fleet Services Provider of the Year Award for delivering a market-leading dedicated digital remarketing platform.

This constantly evolving service enables end of contract fleet vehicles to be offered for sale online the moment they become available, complete with full condition reports and images, enabling dealers to buy when convenient, 24/7.

Awards for ADESA Intelligent Vehicle Inspection (IVI)

Our game-changing IVI solution scooped both the Business Car Best Innovation Award and Motor Finance Europe Digital Innovation of the Year (Fleet) Award.

The judging panels were looking for a truly innovative fleet solution. They found it in ADESA UK’s IVI platform, which marks the first deployment of AI technology in the UK’s vehicle remarketing sector.

IVI empowers fleets to self-inspect end of contract vehicles (or even those still in service) using a template-driven mobile app to capture images, which are analysed using AI to produce fully-costed condition reports.

The results are uploaded to UPSTREAM and significantly helps reduce the downtime normally associated with de-fleeting and address the negative impact of both storage costs and book-drops.

ADESA UK managing director Jonathan Holland on winning these awards

“We are truly honoured to win these three prestigious Motor Finance Europe and Business Car Awards, which together acknowledge our technology-led approach to reducing the time and costs associated with traditional downstream remarketing.

“Our digital-only approach clearly resonated with the judging panels, and these awards serve as industry recognition of the innovation and expertise at the heart of our UPSTREAM and IVI services.

“We would like to thank Business Car and Motor Finance Europe for honouring ADESA UK and all our customers who have embraced our cutting-edge technology.

“This has been a remarkable 12 months for ADESA UK with our IVI service, also winning the 2020 Great British Fleet Event Award for Innovation in Remarketing and 2019 Green Fleet Award for Innovation!”
