Auction site for equipment and vehicles
De Lage Landen is a worldwide active lease corporation and forms a part of the Rabobank Group. Customer companies use De Lage Landen to create financial plans and purchase equipment and vehicles originating from terminated lease contracts.
Challenge: online bidding on equipment and vehicles
Before De Lage Landen started working with Virtual Affairs, several websites were used to offer used equipment for sale. A lack of consistency existed between the sites and offering equipment was cumbersome. De Lage Landen asked Microsoft and Virtual Affairs to think of a more effective and faster solution using an Online Remarketing platform. Such a platform offers functionality to offer equipment to an international market and at the same time efficiently manage customer contacts.
Approach: fast bidding and buying in a user-friendly environment
During this project Virtual Affairs worked closely with Microsoft Services. All facets of design and realization up to the application management has been delivered by our company. Virtual Affairs constructed the platform with SharePoint 2008 based on Commerce Server 2009. The new user friendly auction site makes selecting, bidding and buying easy and fast. In addition to the website, the platform offers a complete management portal to manage the sales of all equipment.
Result: online bidding and buying
On the new De Lage Landen sales site it is easy to spot what’s for sale. All items have extensive descriptions and images to help the buyer make an informed bid. When registration is completed, visitors can directly bid on the product of their choice. Delivering their auction in this fashion, De Lage Landen successfully profits from the added value e-commerce solutions Virtual Affairs developed for them.
