Wittebrug monitors stock with JapiecarsPRO!
Wittebrug is conducting a pilot with Japie. Even so, they are ready in this early phase to share their first experiences.
Emiel van Egmond, General Director for Wittebrug:
“Software and data can be fantastic, but if the user friendliness is not up to par, then those won’t be used. We know that from experience with other providers. Japie works intuitively, like an iPhone, you don’t need a manual. Once you’ve seen it, you know how it works and can get started.”
“That doesn’t mean that you don’t need to do anything to get started with Japie. The power of Japie is that it does not dictate the output. Based on validation sessions, as Japie calls them, we set the parameters together. So, what comparisons do we want to make? The knowledge and experience of both the used-car manager and Japie come into play here. That also means that Japie is not a one-size-fits-all solution for the automotive industry. With your own input, you can make Japie smarter and set it to your preferences.”
“Japie never goes on holiday, and that makes us less vulnerable.”
“The advantage with Japie is that it doesn’t have an Automotive background. Our industry is fairly conservative, which means that we often do what we have always done. Japie is really different, innovative. What we have already noticed is that Japie saves us a great deal of time. Determining the market price, which usually takes a great deal of time, is a matter of clicking one button. The used-vehicles manager no longer has to provide this input and just goes to work with the team with Japie’s output. That means we can optimize the profit margin and turnover rate in a smart, fast way. Japie also never goes on holiday, and that makes us less vulnerable.”
“Since we’re in the pilot phase, we use Japie primarily for setting the sales price. In the foreseeable future, we’ll also use Japie to determine standing days and to decide which cars we “have to” sell. I have full confidence in our collaboration.”
