Ancaster Group partners with BCA for its used car programme
Ancaster Group has partnered with BCA to support its used car programme. The deal will see BCA support the South-East based dealer group with remarketing programmes and the BCA Dealer Pro platform.
Ancaster Group has Nissan, Hyundai, Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Jeep franchises across 14 locations in the South of England. It employs more than 310 staff.
The two year remarketing programme will see around 4,000 vehicles sold in weekly sales on Tuesdays at BCA Paddock Wood. All eligible vehicles will be sold under the BCA Assured scheme and complete with V5, and in many cases a service history and warranted mileage. Vehicles will be available to BCA Live Online buyers as well as bidders in the auction hall.
Stephen Wood, Managing Director of Ancaster Group, said: "BCA continues to invest in new technology and physical auction services to provide industry-leading support for our used car programme. BCA Dealer Pro helps to create efficiencies across our used car programme and create a real-time overview across all our sites at the push of a button."
BCA Dealer Pro is deployed across the Ancaster Group network to ensure every incoming part-exchange vehicle is appraised and valued using BCA's cloud-based service.
BCA Dealer Pro delivers a holistic range of dealer support services that make the part-exchange process more efficient and profitable. At the push of a button, a dealer can decide to fund and retail a part exchange, retain within the group or remarket through digital or physical auction. Thanks to a series of data integrations, vehicles can be loaded into lead management and DMS providers.
Alan Dyer national account manager at BCA said: "Ancaster Group is an ambitious business that values the dedication the team at BCA bring to ensuring its used car programme is optimised. The last 12 months have seen sustained investment in decision intelligence services and new digital technology, like the new Buyer app, to make it easier than ever to do business with BCA."
Ancaster Group opened its first site in 1949 and has grown into one of the largest private motor groups in the South East, with dealerships located in London, Berkshire, Kent and Surrey.
