KCI enhances Remarketing and CPO Programs
Mississauga - Kia Canada Inc. (KCI) has enlisted the services of AutoGavel Exchange (AGX), an interactive and exclusive web-based auction, to enhance their services to their dealers, fleet and rental partners. AGX is just one of the services of AutoGavel Remarketing solutions powered by North Toronto Auction (NTA). Richard Pasta, Manager, National Fleet Sales, Remarketing and CPO for Kia Canada Inc explains “In efforts to bring full circle to our remarketing, fleet and CPO programs we elected to go to market in search for an online “auction” provider/partner. The team at NTA welcomed the project and agreed to assist KCI with our online solution and vision”
The website (www.agx-kia.ca) was launched in July 2013 and offers Kia Franchise dealer’s exclusive services and access to inventory from Kia Canada Inc, Daily Rental Companies, Fleet Management Companies, Auctions, other Dealers and in the future the KCI lease returns. Kia Dealers can purchase or sell vehicles 24/7 and ensure their inventory needs are satisfied. Dealers also can enhance their CPO programs by “exchanging” their Certified Pre-owned vehicles with other dealers in order to keep the retail customer in their showroom. Sergio Lamorgese, President of Ville- Marie Kia in Montreal agrees “AGX is the smartest tool a dealer can use. We now have instant access to inventory in order to keep one step ahead of our competitors.”
George Lykopoulos Manager, National Fleet Sales, Remarketing and CPO for Kia Canada concludes “This site provides KCI with a controlled remarketing channel geared toward our dealer network. With the capabilities of enhancing CPO sales, fleet sales and retail lease returns. This allows our fleet partners to remarket their Kia vehicles back to the Kia dealers and is a great tool that has the versatility to be used in any fleet clients remarketing process. Functionality of the site along with its flexibility and ease of use are the reason in which we are excited about the future of the KCI-AGX relationship”.
