CD Fleet Services says new mobile functionality is best in market
Andy Brown, managing director of CD Fleet Services, said: “The new website (www.cdauctiongroup.com) is fully responsive and has been specifically designed to display vendor stock equally clearly across desktop, tablet and smartphone.
“It means our fleet vendors will get better exposure to trade buyers who will now be able to view, select and bid, anytime, anywhere. Our smartphone and tablet functionality is particularly strong and, we believe, the best in the market.”
The new website also features new graphics to make navigation more intuitive; a search function to find specific cars by make and mileage; and a ‘my auction’ function so that buyers can pre-select vehicles that catch their eye from the stock of vehicles available.
The company added that despite the fresh new look and responsive functionality, it has not changed the robust and genuine online bidding platform, which enables approved buyers to place bids at any time of the day or night with the ‘robobid’ system automatically bidding up to a maximum amount entered and keeping the buyer informed of the sale progress.
“Buyers don’t have to sit around waiting for a vehicle they’re interested in to come ‘on sale’; all the lots are available for bidding up until the auction closes,” explained Brown.
“This is a significant difference between our genuine online auction and the pseudo-online systems that are simply web-feeds of a physical sale.”
The launch of the new website forms part of a major investment in the CD Auction Group business to meet increased demand, which has also seen the company recently increase its storage capacity to handle more vehicles and appoint a new business development coordinator.
