Autofinity, a leading automotive technology business, has appointed former Reynolds & Reynolds and Codeweavers regional manager David Stevenson as its new National Sales Manager.
The Autofinity team has over 20 years’ experience, developing advanced vehicle stock management solutions for automotive retailers and OEMs. Now, they are preparing to launch a new product suite, designed to tackle common and complex vehicle data issues. The goal is to support dealers and retailers in meeting the growing demand for online retailing.
Stevenson’s appointment will be key to Autofinity’s ambition to help vehicle retailers and operational teams to move cars faster.
Andy Whitehair, CEO at Autofinity, said: “David brings significant experience of supporting retailers in their digital transformation journeys with the likes of Codeweavers. This is an ideal time for David to join our team to support business growth. We’re excited to have David on board as we prepare to launch a solution that will bring a revolution in inventory management solutions for retailers and fleet managers.”
Recent research conducted by Autofinity has affirmed the need for a new, flexible solution to manage multiple data channels and monitor all types of vehicle stock, wherever it is in the business. The research also showed that retailers want to replace multiple, manual systems with a single source of the truth.
Stevenson’s role will involve working with retailers to help maximise car sales and identify new opportunities for parts and accessories. Retailers will be able to streamline their business processes through a suite of Autofinity products.
Stevenson said: “It’s an exciting time for the automotive sector as the pandemic has forced a progressive change in the way consumers buy and retailers sell. Digital operations are accelerating at pace and I’m excited to be working with a hugely experienced team, with a product that will offer flexibility and efficiency to retailers. This will enable them to decouple from the traditional online solutions, so they can manage stock better and transform the way they retail in line with other industries.”
