Aston Barclay to roll out "Dashboard" vehicle data system to all vendors
Dubbed "Dashboard", the web-based programme provides Aston Barclay's fleet and dealer vehicle vendors with precise information relating to their vehicles.
The system has been designed to provide user-friendly performance overviews – a factor Aston Barclay says is imperative in providing disposal managers with complete control over their fleet of vehicles.
The product is now being rolled out to all vendors using Aston Barclay's centres in Essex, Shropshire and Wiltshire.
Managing director Tim Hudson said: 'Prior to "Dashboard", the reporting system we used – which was pretty standard for the industry – was statistically heavy and inflexible. Having questioned our vendors we were concerned that they were not actually making effective use of it. We have developed "Dashboard" as an extremely user friendly and flexible online tool. In an instant, and with total clarity, it provides precise and up to date information for every vehicle we hold.
'"Dashboard" will, critically, enable a disposal manager to benchmark what is happening in the market on a sale-by-sale basis and ensure that his vehicle inventory reflects the current market trends.'
Hudson added: 'Our business plan has always been to raise our level of service to a degree never seen before in the industry. "Dashboard" is a prime example of that goal and it will not stop there, it has been designed to be organic and will grow and further develop.'
