CarTakeBack's Bespoke System

CarTakeBack’s Financial and Data System (FADS) is a unique online vehicle management tool at the forefront of end of life vehicle administration.

FADS enables cars to be tracked from the point they leave the customer’s home, through to either transfer of ownership or the de-pollution and dismantling process leading to the final destruction of the de-polluted car shell at a metal shredder.

For cars that are scrapped, ATFs benefit from improved management of collections and deliveries, the recording of waste and scrap metal movements, the secure storage of customer identification documents and the issue of Certificates of Destruction – where in the UK a direct link with the government’s Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s vehicle registration database not only improves data quality, but saves businesses both time and money.

Simple and reliable reporting gives parties, such as vehicle manufacturers and the authorities, the comfort that legal obligations are being fulfilled.

The user-friendly interface, sophisticated security features and compatibility with third party software make FADS an industry leading package.
