vAutoStock Case Studies

Revolutionising vehicle preparation with vAutoPrep at Prestige Cars Kent

Implementing vAutoPrep for Seamless Coordination:

Prestige Group embraced vAutoPrep, integrating it with their Dealer Management System. This seamless connection linked various departments and processes, providing real-time monitoring and updates on vehicle movement and preparation.

Enhanced Clarity and Efficiency:

Joe Chadd, Managing Director of Prestige Cars Kent, expressed the impact of vAutoPrep on their operations. With vAutoPrep in place, Prestige Cars Kent gained clarity on their prep process, identifying bottlenecks and optimising workflows. The system replaced the reactive approach to vehicle prep with proactive monitoring, resulting in a notable reduction in preparation times from 11-20 days to an impressive 7-11 days.

“Thanks to vAutoPrep we not only have more prepped vehicles available to sell, but we have streamlined our prep process to the point that we have been able to reduce headcount.  We have complete clarity on where the bottlenecks are, and when they occur.”

 

“Prior to introducing vAutoPrep, we would have up to 75 vehicles in prep, with no intel on their prep status. The process was reactive and the team’s starting point when a vehicle was sold was, ‘Has the vehicle been prepped?’.  As a result, it was taking us 11-20 days to prep a vehicle.”

 

“Now, when a vehicle lands it is prepped and ready in just 7-11 days – a 100% improvement on the prep speed.   vAutoPrep enables us to deal with those specific areas within the prep process. Days to prep is a key component of days in stock and getting a handle on this has definitely reduced the timings, improved our stockturn and in doing so, allowed us to retain more margin per unit.”

Improved Stockturn and Margins:

The speed of vehicle preparation directly impacted sales, leading to a 10% increase in gross profit for Prestige Cars Kent. vAutoPrep not only accelerated the preparation time but also contributed to reduced days in stock, enabling quicker sales. This efficiency translated into improved stock turnover and enhanced margins per unit.

Eliminating Wasted Time and Effort:

A hidden ROI emerged as vAutoPrep eliminated the need for staff to spend time searching for vehicles and chasing prep statuses. The streamlined process allowed the dealership to allocate resources more efficiently, contributing to the overall success of their operations.

“The speed of used vehicle preparation has a direct link to how quickly they sell.  We have been able to significantly reduce the preparation time, reducing the sale time by seven days.  We have reduced our total aged stock levels and can sell our vehicles quicker.  The hidden ROI is the amount of staff time and effort wasted looking for vehicles and chasing prep, which vAutoPrep eliminates.”

 

“The real win is getting used car stock through the prep process and available for potential customers to view much more efficiently than pre-vAutoPrep. The bottom-line results are impressive – we have seen a 10% increase in gross profit since introducing vAutoPrep.”
