By Carol Fowler, Director of Business Development/FLD Remarketing
Traditional vehicle remarketing has many moving parts. Consigning vehicles. Transporting them. Funneling them to third-party sellers like auctions and dealers. Waiting for payment to finally arrive. That’s why everyone here at FLD is so proud of the fact that our process is not just simple, but straightforward: Get a quote today. Get a check tomorrow. And move on to more important things faster.
But of all the ways we help make a customer’s job easier and them more effective perhaps nothing sets FLD apart from our competition like our WebAccess solution, a single online dashboard that helps fleets monitor and manage their entire remarketing universe in real time from any device, anytime, anywhere! Developed in 1997 by our in house technology department, WebAccess was actually the fleet industry’s first online condition report.
Updated numerous times over the past 24 years, we are excited to announce that we’ve recently upgraded the process so customers can quickly upload title copies as well as sensitive documentation such as drivers licenses and power of attorneys for any title work that needs to be completed.
The new upgrades are just another way FLD is making the remarketing process faster and easier for customers who are increasingly overburdened with more duties than I’ve seen at any time in more than 25-plus years in the fleet industry. And while making customer’s lives easier is a big part of what we do at FLD, the reality is that in today’s business climate, tools like WebAccess need to be chock full of real-world solutions that have a positive impact not just on a fleet’s performance, but it’s bottom line. At FLD, we believe WebAccess is just that kind of solution because it’s easy to install, easy to use, and absolutely free for our customers. Even better, it helps them do great things for their fleets, and absolutely nothing is more important than that.
In fact, here are four great benefits to using our WebAccess solution that can help any fleet take control of the remarketing process while making quicker, easier and more intuitive solutions:
Doing More with Less
With corporations focused on finding new and inventive ways to save money, slashing budgets, cutting staff and merging departments are everyday occurences. When this happens, one of the department’s most often affected is the fleet operation, requiring overburdened fleets to simply do more with less. That’s when a tool like FLD’s WebAccess online solution can really have a positive impact. Mainly because it requires just one person to manage the entire remarketing process using a single, intuitive portal. Now instead of having to assign multiple staff to manage remarketing, fleets can use WebAccess to monitor remarketing in real time from any device, any time, any where in the world, making it easy for even the smallest fleet to manage the remarketing process with optimal results.
Making Better, More Informed Decisions
In today’s world, information is king, but the reality is that remarketing can often be a wide-ranging and far flung process that requires bits of information be pulled from various sources. Because of this, it can be hard for fleet pros to to see what’s going on in their remarketing universe, often forcing them to make decisions without fully understanding the consequences. But because WebAccess makes it easy to monitor the entire remarketing process in real time, fleets have a single source for all the information they need to make better, more informed decisions that help them run more efficient, more profitable fleets.
Saving Time, Money and Resources
Because it has so many moving parts, traditional remarketing can often be cumbersome, burdensome and time-consuming, costing fleets valuable time, money and resources that could otherwise be spent on more important needs. This situation often gets difficult to easily manage, making it hard for a fleet to find its rhythm. When this happens, WebAccess can help in myriad ways by giving fleets a single, intuitive, easy to use portal for all its remarketing needs. The result? More time to spend on other needs, less wasted time, and meaningful costs savings that go a long way towards running a more efficient – and profitable – operation.
As the saying goes, time is money, and nothing could be more true when it comes to remarketing vehicles and equipment. Because a vehicle continues to rack up costs every day it sits idle or unsold, speed of sale is perhaps the most important element of total cost of ownership and that’s where WebAccess can help. To sell a vehicle – or even a whole group of vehicles – all a fleet pro has to do is log on to WebAccess, click a few buttons, and that’s it, they are on their way to a transaction that will be completed in days not months. Within days, a check for the full price a fleet agrees to is on the way, and the entire remarketing process is archived for future reference.
