ŠKODA UK will partner Dealer Trade® to create a remarketing platform for car dealers to help them expedite their daily business and transactions.
ŠKODA UK, the Czech based automobile company, has recently announced its partnership with Dealer Trade®, an online vehicle auction app, to launch ŠKODA Market, an advanced remarketing solution for their dealer network.
According to credible reports, Dealer Trade’s mobile app service would help ŠKODA’s retailers to sell and list their part exchange vehicles for free through their mobile phones or tablets. The platform typically takes under 3 hours for the process of listing sales which is considerably faster than most traditional disposal routes, saving money as well as time.
Furthermore, the application’s ‘closed’ network feature would enable ŠKODA dealers to advertise over-age franchise cars exclusively to other ŠKODA retailers to purchase, promote retention of expensive ŠKODA vehicles within the network and allow flexible movement of stock. Dealer Trade would also offer a ‘free to sell’ facility that will radically cut ŠKODA network’s trade disposal costs, which is currently forecasted at nearly £2.5 million per annum.
Sources cite that the Dealer Trade app offers a push notification directly to user’s mobile devices, notifying them about upcoming auctions that suit their preferences, ensuring that they don’t miss any potentially valuable used stock auction.
According to a statement, Wayne Ryder, Managing Director, Dealer Trade (UK), said that the company is thrilled to join ŠKODA UK in offering their dealer network with a profitable online remarketing solution. He said that this venture would permit the company to offer their online community with high quality vehicles in huge volumes.
As for Barney Butterell, National Used Car Manager, ŠKODA UK, the company is always searching for ways to help their retailers increase profits and save money. He claims that by offering a free and efficient disposal route for all vehicles, Dealer Trade potentially saves up to £150 per transaction, making a huge difference at the network level.
