GForces recently announced the company has signed on their 200th customer for their online car retail platform, NetDirector Auto-e.
The speedy roll-out of the online retail solution mean that more than 1,100 car dealership locations are now operating the platform in a move that the software business said “marks a defining shift in the industry’s acceptance of ecommerce”.
GForces now claims that nearly 20% of the UK’s top 200 dealers are now using the NetDirector Auto-e platform it launched at the start of 2019.
Tim Smith, Chief Commercial Officer at GForces, said: “With over two hundred retailers using NetDirector Auto-e, our platform is helping change the uncertainty around selling vehicles online.
“And, our clients are seeing significant business as a result. We’ve already seen one retailer sell in excess of a hundred used vehicles through the platform.”
Among the retail group’s now using the Auto-e online retail platform are RRG Group, Chorley Group, Croyland Car Megastore, and Vantage Motor Group.
GForces claimed that, in many cases, consumers who embrace the online sales offer are new customers to the retailer, often from traditionally ‘showroom-shy’ demographics such as women and older buyers.
Many are also not local to the physical locations, with orders made by customers based hundreds of miles from the retailer, it added.
