Ebbon-Dacs has launched its Stockviewer web-based platform to help leasing companies and brokers manage vehicle stock and sales campaigns.
The Oxford-based technology solutions provider said Stockviewer provides a single technology platform to upload, manage and sell large numbers of stock and campaign vehicles.
Although stock lists and sales campaigns are commonplace throughout the industry, Ebbon-Dacs’ analysis has shown that many of these are still managed through spreadsheets, which it says have the drawback of not providing a ‘live’ view of vehicle stocks available to the sales channels responsible for selling them.
It said this often results in confusion or errors, including unnecessary phone calls to check stock availability or duplication when two buyers think they have bought the same vehicle and campaigns have not been highlighted to the right sales teams.
For Leaselink users, Ebbon-Dacs is integrating Stockviewer within the Leaselink platform to avoid the need for re-keying of transactions.
Stockviewer can also work independently of Leaselink and users do not have to belong to the Leaselink community to use the new platform.
Michael Terry, Ebbon-Dacs head of commercial, said: “Stockviewer provides a real time view of the status of all of your vehicle stock and campaigns, bringing stock owners, buyers and sellers together onto one trading community platform.
“We believe this live database will set new standards for managing and selling stock and campaign vehicles.”
