Aston Barclay plc relaunches website as part of major IT investment

The new site provides a central hub for the firm’s online routes to market, with a single log-in for all services, such as vehicle appraisals, reports and the IMS reporting portal. It’s also fully optimised for both desktop and mobile devices.

Aston Barclay has also introduced new and updated servers that can comfortably handle simultaneous downloading of data-heavy information, minimising downtime for customers.

Aston Barclay LIVE – where members of the motor trade can bid on vehicles online – has also been heavily enhanced, thanks to the updated servers. Buyers and sellers can continue to bid using the service at all times, from their desktop or laptop, or via proxy bids and Bid & Buy Now through a tablet or mobile phone.

The vehicle search facility has been completely redesigned, with larger images enabling users to better inspect the vehicles they are searching for, through a new, intuitive system that searches based on a myriad of parameters and vehicle keywords.

Glenn Scarborough, managing director of Aston Barclay plc, said: “This is just the first step in significantly upgrading our IT infrastructure over the coming year. Our aim is to ensure all of our services continue to run seamlessly, complement activity on the auction floor and help to provide the unique and flexible service that has seen us become one of the UK’s leading remarketing providers.”
