Our August site and software launches.
August saw the country basked in late summer heat (albeit with a few of the standard rainy days). And, just as the mercury was rising, so were the numbers of our site and software launches. Here are our August highlights.
One of our first August launches was for Donnelly Jaguar, based in Dungannon, Co.Tyrone. Their brand-new NetDirector® Auto website boasts a variety of standard features, including Enquiry Manager, for an enhanced user journey. The high-end design and impressive performance of their website now echoes the expectations and aspirations of their audience.
From a major rebrand, to launching their latest micro-site, we’ve been working closely with LEVC to grow their reach and audience. As this latest website introduces a commercial vehicle based on the same zero-emissions technology found in the new TX taxi, we think there’s a fare chance we’ll be seeing lots more from them in the next few months. Meanwhile, one of the growing number of approved LEVC franchises, London-, Essex- and Hertfordshire-based Endeavour Automotive, delivered their new site complete with Enquiry Manager, Call Manager and CAP Valuations all built in.
“Very happy with final look and feel of the site.”
Alasdair Jakes, Marketing Manager, Endeavour Automotive
There was also no lack of representation for mass-market retailers in August either. Penton Peugeot, one of the largest dealers for the marque in the South West (with a stock of over 700 used cars), launched with GForces this month, alongside used dealerships Seacroft Ford of Lincolnshire and Carrs Select – the used arm of Devon-based Helston Garages Group.
Hadwins Motor Group, a successful Audi and Volkswagen dealer in Cumbria, also went live. Across the Irish Sea, Windsor Motor Group introduced the new sites for their Dacia and Renault franchises, complete with Service Booking and Enquiry Manager functionality.
“Great work…from start to finish and everything in between. Communication and updates were regular and professional.”
Seán Tackaberry, Digital Marketing Manager, Windsor Marketing Group
Going even further afield, we were pleased to launch sites for two more of our South African clients. The Isuzu dealer ITC Group and Karoo Ford both declared themselves very satisfied at the look and feel of their new template sites.
It was also a strong month for existing clients looking to redesign their sites or to add new franchises. Quest Motor Group added a Suzuki franchise based in Maldon, Essex, while Truro Used Car Centre finally left its trusty but ageing NetDirector® V8 platform in favour of a redesigned NetDirector® Auto site. Other established sites to undergo thorough revamps included Midlands prestige car dealer V12 Sports and Classics, as well as major regional players Swansway Garages and Birchwood Group.
One of our August software launches was the Online Service Booking Widget for Jaguar Land Rover, deployed for the Japanese market. Our long-term collaboration with JLR’s Japan team has allowed us to meet all market cultural requirements and add a further 42 roof tops to our JLR representation.
That’s all for now, but rest assured that we’ll be back next month with a look back at an “autumn harvest” of new sites launched during September.
