City Auction Group digital offering

City Auction Group has announced the launch of a new technology platform, smartphone app and website in response to corporate vendor feedback.

Corporate vendors can now access a new management solution featuring:

  • Live vehicle recovery lifecycle data
  • Centralised management of vehicle movement logistics
  • Inspection reports with digital images
  • Tactical refurbishment requests and approvals
  • Simplified V5 application process
  • Vehicle remarketing information

The software provides web portal access for agents to collect their outstanding jobs.  It also allows users to interface with the vendor’s internal systems, as well as their own directly, for instant transfer of vehicle information, actions required and inspection reports.

City Auction Group’s managing director Michael Tomalin said: “We have listened to corporate vendors and improved our technology to offer a complete management solution, covering vehicle logistics, tactical refurbishment and remarketing solutions, across our on and offline operations. “

The revamped website features improved navigation and functionality, an online bidding facility with 24/7 timed or buy now settings and storage of NAMA graded inspection reports and mechanical health checks.

City Auction Group has also launched an enhanced version of its smartphone app which now features instant access to vehicle condition reports, more detailed grading and images and buy now options. 

Tomalin said: “We were determined to improve efficiencies and provide more live, up to the minute data.

"Users can now locate vehicles 24/7 from their smartphone, tablet or desktop, access detailed inspection reports in real time, including Groupe CAT mechanical overview and analyse the performance of vehicles at auction and cost efficiencies.”
