Charles Torrance

Landrover Manager

Having been referred, I decided with some skepticism, to look at the Appraisal Solutions mobile car appraiser system. I have been the sales manager at Barbagallo Land Rover for 38 years and have seen a lot of shiny objects come and go, however I also recognise that times are changing and we must always keep an open mind and adapt to meet the ever changing market place.

After having an "MCA" demonstration I immediately saw the obvious advantages it would give my team. Not only was it written from a sales perspective rather than simply a software perspective but, I could immediately see the benefit to our GP and lift even further the level of professionalism displayed by my team.

It was evident how it was going to increase sales, finance and aftermarket penetration by clever use of sales psychology throughout the process, whilst conditioning the client to expect less for their trade in than their original expectations.

The training we received at Barbagallos was excellent and thorough for the team as well as the use of 24/7 video training for new recruits.

I would highly recommend you take a look at the Appraisal Solutions “Mobile Car Appraiser” system and try it for yourself.
