A new platform that can manage vehicle stock and tactical sales campaigns throughout the automotive community – including real-time information – has debuted from Ebbon-Dacs.

Aimed at an audience of leasing companies, leasing brokers, dealers and vehicle manufacturers, Stockviewer provides a single, web-based technology platform to upload, manage and ultimately sell large numbers of stock and campaign vehicles.

Although stock lists and sales campaigns are commonplace throughout the industry, analysis by the Oxford-based technology solutions provider has found that many of these are still managed through inefficient methods such as spreadsheets.

This means that dealers and manufacturers are missing out on a ‘live’ view of vehicle stocks available to the sales channels responsible for selling them – bringing the risk of confusion or errors and campaigns simply not getting in front of the right sales teams.

Stockviewer removes these issues as stock and sales campaigns can be shared with internal teams or external sales channels. For example, dealers and manufacturers will have the ability to not only advertise stock to their own sales teams but also to their external partners such as leasing companies or brokers.

Thanks to its live status, the Stockviewer platform provides full visibility of the status of all stock held in real time so that all buyers and sellers have the latest information on stock and vehicle availability, which also ensures vehicle order duplication is avoided

The platform allows multiple stock vehicles to be loaded and updated quickly and efficiently without rekeying, thus saving time and resources. A quick, intelligent search facility enables specific vehicles to be easily located.

For Leaselink users, Ebbon-Dacs is integrating Stockviewer within the Leaselink platform – thus providing users with the ability to have all vehicle orders in one place and avoiding the need for re-keying of transactions.

Stockviewer can also work independently of Leaselink and users do not have to belong to the Leaselink community to enjoy the full benefits of using the new platform.

Ebbon-Dacs head of commercial, Michael Terry said: “Stockviewer provides a real-time view of the status of all of your vehicle stock and campaigns, bringing stock owners, buyers and sellers together onto one trading community platform.

“The live database gives customers a one stop shop that we believe will set new standards for managing and selling stock and campaign vehicles,” he said.
