It is our belief and goal that by clearly communicating with our client we foster ongoing customer relationships that encourage repeat business.

An integral part of this is the integration of our management system, TUNZ / Clarity. This is the system we use to track and measure our client touch points. This is a computer software that collects customer data / details preferences etc. that has been developed by Toyota NZ, and is unique to the motor industry. A crucial part to this CLM task is to ensure all the sales team knows and understands the correct process and procedures around collecting client data correctly.

Leasing a new Toyota for your business is easier than you might think.

Leasing a new vehicle for your business may be one of the smartest business decisions you make. It's a great alternative to buying outright, and widely used by businesses as a cost-effective way of obtaining a vehicle without diverting valuable working capital. Nigel Last-Harris is your Fleet Vehicle point of contact at Bowater Toyota and can work with you to find the best option for your needs.
