A new online tool has been launched to help fleets manage the best way of disposing of cars and vans.
The Auction Allocation tool, which is part of Epyx’s 1link Disposal Network e-commerce platform, recommends a site from the independent motor auctions registered based on criteria chosen by the user. This could include location and recent sales performance.
Head of business development at Epyx, Ken Trinder, said: “We have been adding new functionality to 1link Disposal Network over the last couple of years, with developments such as our iPhone app and, more recently, our Trade-to-Trade dealer trading tool.”
The number of transactions through 1link Disposal Network has doubled within the first six months of the year as large fleets use it to manage car and van disposal online and dealers use it to find the stock they require.
Trinder added: “We believe that Auction Allocation represents a real step change for the platform. It provides fleets managing disposal with the means to put in place a structured disposal process that is largely automated based on the criteria that they decide to put in place.”
