H.R Owen employs HPI software solution

Multi-site dealer H.R. Owen is to employ HPIs vehicle appraisal software AUTOi, after a three month trial.

AUTOi will be used across all of the company’s dealerships around the UK, with the aim of helping dealers get the best price on quality stock through detailed management information and accurate appraisals.

 The software allows dealers to mark damage directly onto images and damage types are selected from a drop down menu. Digital appraisals can be sent to dealer contacts for repair estimates, including audio descriptions and pictures or videos.

 These features allow for a car to be appraised in one location and valued in another.

 Chris Harris, marketing and customer director for H.R. Owen, said: “Our pilot showed that AUTOi saved us time, increased the accuracy of appraisals and generated high quality management information, which is why we’re now rolling out across the Group.”
