Autorola UK has launched a used vehicle inventory platform which helps dealers speed up and improve their car preparation processes.
The Solutions platform tracks each stage of the vehicle preparation process from a car being bought by a dealer, arriving on site, being refurbished, or repaired and going up for sale.
It gives the entire dealer team visibility of each stage of the used car preparation process to ensure cars are being actively managed in partnership with the bodyshop and parts departments, and external supply chain.
Autorola’s Solutions platform is already available in other European markets and dealers are halving the time it takes between buying a used car and it going on sale, which is increasing sales by up to a third.
“Dealers told us that one of their biggest challenges was the tracking and transparency of the used vehicle preparation process. Challenges with cross department communication and multiple software platforms in use within the dealer also meant accountability was a problem,” explained Jon Mitchell, Autorola UK’s group sales director. “Solutions addresses all these issues, and we look forward to working with dealers to help them sell more used cars more quickly.”
Autorola has appointed Luke Statter (pictured) to lead the Solutions team as national business development manager and has already started demonstrating the platform to dealers.
He joins from Carwow where he was partnership account director and before that he was a business development manager at VW Financial Services.
He said: “It’s an exciting proposition for dealers as used cars continue to be a major part of their current and future revenue streams. We look forward to helping make their used cars even more efficient and importantly sell more used cars more quickly,” he added.
