Working closely with Ogilvie for over 12 months, Bedfordshire-based company HK Remarketing, part of the Hudson Kapel Group, has developed and delivered a workflow-based de-fleet and sales channel management system configured specifically for the firm and providing full inventory visibility; multiple rules based sales channel operation and supplier selection.
The system offers full integration of the supply chain, from vehicle inspection to logistics and remarketing and MI dashboard reporting with full audit control. By integrating with client and third-party systems, the process is seamless and allows Ogilvie to retain full control over its processes. Along with all of this, a driver sales portal has been plugged into the Ogilvie website that allows Ogilvie drivers to easily obtain a provisional quote for its vehicle and to process the purchase, all of which is fully integrated into the workflow within the HK Remarketing system.
By implementing the system provided by HK Remarketing, Ogilvie has been able to remove many time-consuming manual processes, enable staff to focus on delivering additional added value tasks, manage the re-marketing activity through one solution, maximise sales results by selecting the right sales channel, benchmark supplier performance and drive better efficiency through the supply chain, delivering increased profitability.
Jim Hannah, operations director at Ogilvie Fleet Limited, said: ‘We introduced the HKR remarketing platform to increase efficiency within our remarketing team. The key goal for us was to be able to handle multiple suppliers within the same environment, for stock management, collections, inspections and preparation of pre and post sales analysis. We have now achieved this and as a result, significantly reduced the amount of time spent searching through different supplier’s individual sites.’
