Aston Barclay has started up a Digital Solutions portion of the company, which will be led by their Cascade series of re-marketing tools.
Created to help connect consumers with the vehicle(s) they want, using both digital and physical re-marketing channels; the Cascade tools use Aston Barclay's e-Valuate, e-Hub, e-Xchange, and e-Live solutions into an end-to-end used car proposition for leasing vendors and dealers. This starts with the used vehicle's appraisal all the way to wholesale disposal and delivery to purchasers.
The suite of solutions will also offer a smart dashboard for quick decision making including current market insight to increase car control and management throughout a car's life-cycle.
This all begins by using the e-Valuate car appraisal mobile app, which lets dealers accurately evaluate all incoming cars either using evaluations from Cap used vehicle information or a consumer's own pricing matrix, and a promised purchase price from The Car Buying Group.
All information gathered, including inspection results and pictures, are saved for e-Hub's control and report management feature, which will let vendors choose if the cars is valuable for retail or pushed along to the next Cascade feature for wholesale disposal for open or closed buyer groups.
The e-Xchange platform will let vendors have a chance to set how long a car is advertised for, including a Buy Now and minimum reserve price. If the car ends up selling, the buyer puts together all the logistics and payments through to the vendor. If the car isn't sold off it will, then move onto an auction through e-Live, either online or physically.
Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay group CEO, said: “The Cascade digital journey is seamless in taking individual used vehicles from initial vehicle appraisal, right through to physical delivery to the buyer with a number of options to increase speed of sale including dealer underwriting from The Car Buying Group.”
