Drive Vauxhall has extended its relationship with Manheim Aftersales Solutions until the end of 2013. All of Drive Vauxhall’s eleven locations in Aldershot, Bristol Central, Bristol North, Bury St Edmunds, Hartlepool, Haverhill, Leamington Spa, Leicester, Redcar, Weston-super-Mare and Yate will be using the software which is designed to maximise revenues from dealership aftersales departments. This now brings to over 600 the total number of dealers deploying Manheim Aftersales Solutions’ revenue-generating products for the management of their aftersales operations.
Utilising many years of dealership service department experience, Manheim Aftersales Solutions (formerly RTC) was formed in 2001 and helps dealers to effectively promote, manage and improve revenue from servicing and aftersales activities. To enhance its value the aftersales software has been developed to interface with the majority of the major dealer management systems.
Chris Elvidge, financial director, Drive Vauxhall said: “We have been using this aftersales software for a number of years now and there is no doubt that it has made the aftersales operation more effective and has helped to maximise revenue.”
Tim Baumfield, managing director, Manheim Aftersales Solutions added: “In the current tough retail climate dealers are looking to maximise revenues from all areas of their businesses and aftersales is no exception. We have developed a fantastic piece of software that manages many aspects of aftersales activity and importantly is able to interface with the dealer management systems that are the lifeblood of all dealerships. The value this brings to a dealership has been recognised by dealers throughout the country and has been endorsed most recently by Drive Vauxhall’s decision to extend its relationship with us.”
