Vehicle information expert, HPI, is taking its partnership with AUTOi and applying it to Peugeot which is launching the iSell sales system for Peugeot dealers.
Under a new agreement, the AUTOi appraisal system is fully integrated into Peugeot's iSell app, allowing dealers to complete digital appraisals, HPI checks and conduct a number of valuations from CAP, Glass's and Delta Point.
Powered by HPI, the AUTOi system claims to provide a professional-standard approach to appraising vehicles.
Using the system dealers will be able to appraise vehicles by capturing key information, adding up to nine pictures, two videos and highlighting key areas of damage by placing digital markers directly on to the photos.
The new analytics suit from AUTOi also gives dealerships the ability to analyse appraisal data at a granular level by dealership and sales executive activity, establish peak periods of business and provides insight in to trends specific to the dealer.
The iPad iSell app claims to give Peugeot dealers not only an extensive CRM tool but also the ability to match customer requirements with vehicles in stock via either a product request or budget limit. Now Peugeot dealers get all the benefits of the AUTOi system via iSell, in turn streamlining the whole sales process and eliminating any double data entry.
Once Peugeot customers choose a model, colour and other vehicle specifics, the dealer uses iSell via iPad to locate a vehicle matching that description. Customer information is entered via the tablet and by clicking on the 'appraisal' section, the dealer can conduct a detailed appraisal and also complete HPI Checks and valuations via AUTOi, bringing added information to their fingertips and creating a professional image.
"We are delighted to be working with Peugeot, a manufacturer that also recognises the sales potential offered by the mobile technology revolution," explained Keith Hopkins head of manufacturer accounts at HPI.
Sebastien Duval managing director of AUTOi, added: "iSell is an outstanding system which will significantly help Peugeot dealers meet the needs of their customers by utilising the capabilities of tablets to enhance the sales process.
"With the addition of AUTOi, dealers gain the ability to quickly and efficiently appraise vehicles, complete provenance checks and valuations all from one fully integrated system, assisting dealers in maximising profit opportunities."
iSell is being rolled out to all Peugeot retailers in the UK this summer and beyond that it will be adapted for local markets as well as the Citroen brand.
