A new ‘free text’ search function on BCA’s Buyer app allows buyers to locate stock by mixing and matching these criteria including sale location, registration details and equipment data, such as ‘climate control’ or ‘towbar’, for example.
BCA’s chief marketing and data officer Dene Jones said: “The Buyer app is an important part of our journey to giving our customers a truly personalised digital experience that supports their business needs.
"Our vision is the delivery of accurate real-time intelligence that connects every aspect of buying and selling with BCA.”
The latest update introduced in March allows filters to be applied when searching for stock, including search by vehicle type (‘car’ or ‘LCV’), model group, colour, mileage, CAP Clean price and age.
Results can be sorted across a range of criteria, and mobile users can access saved searches on BCA Auction View.
The update also introduces an improved image viewer that allows all vehicle pictures to be seen in full screen, with the ability to pan and zoom.
BCA will continue to roll-out regular updates to the Buyer app based on user feedback to ensure it consistently evolves with the needs of customers.
