Aston Barclay increases online products

Aston Barclay has launched three new products to increase its online portfolio and complement its existing services.

Buy Now and Bid Now are available 24/7 to its registered trade buyers.

Buy Now is a fixed price stock location service enabling our customers to purchase stock for a fixed price, whereas Bid Now offers the opportunity, on specific vehicles, to place a bid which Aston Barclay will submit to the seller with a view to negotiating a sale.

Aston Barclay is also launching IMS, a service that provides its customers with real-time cloud based access to their current remarketing stock and historical performance data.

This service has been available to selected sellers for some time and the positive feedback this has generated has led Aston Barclay to offer the service to a wider range of sellers and buyers.

These three new products have been under development for the past six months through rigorous R&D with sellers and buyers ensuring that the services and processes are tailored to the needs of both parties.

Barry Watts, operations director at Aston Barclay, said: “The addition of Bid and Buy Now to our existing offer demonstrates our commitment to disposing of stock in the shortest time through as many routes to market as possible whilst also providing a new and untapped resource for buyers.

“Historically, buyers interested in Bid and Buy Now vehicles would have to wait until the next physical sale. We have now removed that barrier meaning that buyers can replace stock anytime to suit them.

“IMS has proven to be a great service for our sellers, allowing them to download up to date results and reports on their disposal activities whenever and wherever it is needed. We felt that now is the time to empower buyers with the same level of service.”

All of Aston Barclay’s online products are fully integrated into the company’s website providing customers with access to the entire catalogue of online services with a single secure log in.
