Aston Barclay has formed a new partnership with dealer management services (DMS) provider Navigator to enhance remarketing processes.

The partnership will lead to the integration of Aston Barclay’s remarketing services into Navigator’s software platform.

The collaboration will enable Navigator’s dealer customers running 300 sites to pass dealer part exchanges into Aston Barclay’s auction network with a single click.

Dealers already doing business with Aston Barclay can use the functionality instantly and other customers will be to open accounts on the auction platform.

Through the partnership, Aston Barclay and Navigator aim to reduce the time taken by dealers to dispose their unwanted or overage stock.

As soon as a used vehicle is assigned to the auction platform through Navigator’s vehicle stock management system, it will be available for sale both online and physically at any one of Aston Barclay’s auction centres.
