November’s Autorola Group senior manager meetings saw 50 colleagues from across our 19 subsidiary companies together for the first time since before the beginning of the global pandemic.
And the theme of the three-day conference in Autorola’s global HQ in Odense, Denmark was how our MarketPlace, INDICATA and Solutions business units can work more closely together to resolve the modern-day remarketing and vehicle asset management challenges of our customers.
Challenging time for customers
The global pandemic has certainly caused a number of challenges for vendors and buyers. And the Autorola Group continues to focus on we can help customers resolve these challenges with the powerful Fleet Monitor asset management system at the heart of these solutions.
This strategy will continue Autorola’s business growth backed up by Big Data provided by INDICATA which will help companies make strategic remarketing decisions as they respond to the changing used car market.
“Our group conference was very valuable in getting everyone together for the first time for a few years. It gives us a chance to celebrate what we have achieved during Covid but more importantly focus on how we can continue to provide dynamic online solutions to our customers,” explained Peter Grøftehauge, Autorola’s group CEO.
During 2022 alone Autorola signed an exciting new four-year remarketing contract with BMW Group and a five-year remarketing contract with Smart Europe.
“Our group continues to grow based on our continued focus on working with customers to make their businesses more efficient and to optimise vendor used car sales whilst supporting buyers to source stock efficiently. We are delivering this in a difficult and ever-changing global used car market,” said Peter.
Dedicated remarketing platform
“We have built a dedicated, closed B2B remarketing platform across Europe for the continental BMW and MINI dealer group organisations. The fully integrated solution provides online auction services as well as the individual components such as vehicle valuation and logistics. We are well placed to provide these solutions to multiple companies around the world,” he added.
Autorola continues to develop its Inspection App to support compound operations, dealer part exchanges and in-life and end-of-life fleet inspections. The online logistics portal also continues to manage the growing number of used car imports and export transactions going through the MarketPlace online remarketing portal.
Excited at Autorola’s future
“The global team left our conference very excited about Autorola’s future and the opportunity of working across business units, countries and continents to deliver dynamic online solutions across the automotive sector,” added Peter.
