Dealer Principal

Having been recommended to check out the Appraisal Solutions Mobile Car Appraiser system by a fellow Dealer Principal in our group, I was initially apprehensive. We had been using Live Market as way of achieving improvements in our conversions when it came to trade-ins.

However since having had a demonstration of the software I soon realised it had some unique features which if used correctly would yield us even further improvements in profitability from each unit. 

Since implementing the "MCA" system we had seen the improvements we were looking for. Negotiating with customers is easier, resulting in a "win win" senario for both parties, whilst the perceived professionalism of the salesman has reached new levels. We have increased trade in stock and reduced potential costly mistakes in existing trade ins. 

The staff at Appraisal Solutions have been excellent, always available when we have had a question and always eager to listen to possible improvements and implement them to benefit us. Training was good and the online 24/7 training is great for new members of staff who join us. 

I would not only recommend taking a look at Appraisal Solutions system, but implementing it. The area of appraisals has been left alone too long and no longer meets todays everchanging market place.
