Techies 2012 - Best Remarketing System: BCA Appraise, Value and Sell
21 August 2012
This is the second consecutive win for BCA in the remarketing award. It's not last year's winning system - Auto Grade - that's in the frame this time around though, as the auction house launched its online Appraise, Value and Sell tool in June, which is designed to better prepare vehicles during the defleeting and sales process and cut down on administration time and cost.
The three functions, which can be used separately or together - do what they say on the tin - Appraise records a vehicle's condition and automatically creates a grade, Value generates a valuation for the vehicle based on the company's extensive data, and Sell sends details including the appraisal report and any images to the company before the vehicle is sent for sale at a physical auction. Companies can also arrange for transportation of vehicles to auction within the Sell process.
The firm claims the software can be used on any computer with an internet connection including tablets, effectively enabling businesses to carry out full assessments stood next to the vehicle in question.
BCA says the system is particularly useful for smaller fleets needing to appraise and value company cars, and our judges praised its simplicity and ability to speed up the remarketing process above all.
Autorola's Branded Sites online remarketing initiative takes the highly commended gong. It's free to customers and offers businesses the opportunity to personalise its online remarketing service with their own logos, photography, brand guidelines and colours.
