Louwman Dealerbedrijven switches to JapiecarsPRO for the management of over 2,500 used cars!
“With over 2,500 used cars and more than 50 branches we are an important part of the Louwman Dealer Groep (ed.: number 6 in the Dealer holding top 10)”, according to Bram van der Vijver, General Manager Louwman Dealerbedrijven. “The daily management of over 35 million Euros in capital takes a lot out of our used car traders and specialists. Combined with a dynamic used cars market this requires support from the best available technologies. That is why we have opted for JapiecarsPRO.”
Harm ter Horst, Used Car Manager, says: “A precondition for success in this market is to have access to real-time and reliable used car data at any time of the day. JapiecarsPRO allows us to make a reliable analysis of one used car or of our entire stock in an efficient way and at a glance.” He adds: “his ensures that we give all our used cars the everyday attention they need which results in more sales with optimum margins.”
Japie is the mastermind behind JapiecarsPRO used car software. Together with his team of Data Scientists he collects and analyses large amounts of data each day. The results of the analyses are presented in JapiecarsPRO, where the specialists make a reliable client analysis in two mouse clicks.
“JapiecarsPRO originates from a financial concept. This is because there are a lot of similarities between the used car and financial markets. At any time of the day, our customers too have to make choices which shares, or used cars, to buy and sell in a market that is getting faster, more international and more volatile by the day”, says Ronald Scholtus, Business Development Director at Japiecars. He adds: “If you look at the amount of capital involved in this business and the returns realized related to the capital charge then you know that you have to make the right choices every day. In order to do so, JapiecarPRO and Japie’s team of Data Scientists supports our customers on a daily basis.”
