Vehicle Stock Control (VSC)
Continuous inventory control of dealer networks
The financial entities of automotive manufacturers have the role of financing their dealer networks in order to push sales. This represents a vast amount of money circulating in the dealer network, a burden that carries a significant financial cost. Contractual obligations and payment due dates need to be strictly followed up and controlled in order to minimize and prevent losses.
What is Vehicle Stock Control? Vehicle Stock Control (VSC), or Floor Plan Auditing, is a service designed to help financial controllers within vehicle manufacturing companies to continuously monitor the stock of vehicles in dealers' yards, as well as related contract payments and documents according to the client's audit criteria.

As with all Bureau Veritas services, confidentiality is contractually guaranteed to safeguard the information processed and to optimize efficiency of the operations. Data transmission between PDA, Bureau Veritas servers and clients is encrypted. Audit scheduling is totally confidential and is communicated to auditors only a few hours in advance.
