epyx launches new online tool

A new online tool from epyx is designed to make ex-fleet used car and van buying easier for larger dealer groups.

Introduced as an element of the company’s 1link Disposal Network e-commerce platform, Group Buyer allows a complete online buying infrastructure to be set up tailored to the dealer group.

At an individual franchise or site level within the group, buyers can bid for or buy vehicles that are for sale on the platform – but the transaction is only completed when approved online by a central buyer with overall responsibility for used cars within the group.

Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, said: “Dealers are increasingly sourcing ex-fleet used car and van stock online because it allows them to set up active searches for exactly the kind of vehicles they want plus it is a much more efficient use of their time than driving all over the country in search of stock.

“Group Buyer builds on these advantages by providing a structure that dealer groups can use for their online buying that brings additional flexibility and control. We are already receiving a lot of interest in the product from some of our largest dealer buyers.”
