Established in 2021

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a new standard in automotive lending.

Our Vision

Our Vision: By combining artificial intelligence and human data, we are changing the way consumers get financed.

What started as an idea became a solution. The Lucy Credit Decisioning Platform was built by dealers for dealers. Our team consists of industry experts and dealership owners who are dedicated to helping dealers get more consumers financed.

We saw that the world of buying cars, despite having an unimaginable potential for success and improvement, remains unexplored when it comes to generating convenience and control with self-service technology. That is why we decided to take the initiative, by striving to create a new standard in automotive lending.

André-Martin Hobbs

“I created my “Dream Team” with this company. It took me 20 years to find the best talents and bring them together under the same project”.

By bringing together artificial machine intelligence and human-generated data, we are gradually changing the way consumers get financed from their financial institutions, reducing piles of paperwork to a single software, and hours of work into mere minutes.
