Komatsu Europe has signed up Ritchie Bros’ cloud-based SaaS solution, RB Asset Solutions, to help better manage its assets internally and remarket its used equipment.
RB Asset Solutions brings together a suite of tools and services to help customers better manage, analyse, and sell their assets, Ritchie Bros says, adding that Komatsu will use the service in coordination with its redesigned and mobile-friendly website: used.komatsu.eu.
Giovanni Guidi, who is responsible for the project at Komatsu Europe, said: “We have developed a strong relationship with Mascus over the years; the services and tools included with the RB Asset Solutions platform will give our dealers full control over their stock and optimise used equipment sales.
“We’re excited about all the internal, user-friendly tools that come with RB Asset Solutions to make us more efficient and create an online community for all our dealers handling used equipment sales around Europe.”
As an RB Asset Solutions customer, Komatsu Europe is equipped with a complete inventory management system accessible by all Komatsu Europe dealers, allowing them to manage their stock and publish used equipment to various sales channels, including their own individual dealer site, used.komatsu.eu, Mascus.com, or any other Ritchie Bros sales channel, according to Ritchie Bros.
The used.komatsu.eu website, which was recently redesigned by the RB Asset Solutions team, is available via desktop and as a mobile app. Equipment can be searched and filtered by potential buyers by equipment type, manufacturer, hours/usage, location, price, etc, Ritchie Bros said.
“Additional data and multilingual marketing tools are also a part of the RB Asset Solutions package, helping Komatsu Europe better understand when and how to sell and advertise their assets to the world,” the company added.
Karl Werner, President, International, Ritchie Bros, said: “We are extremely proud to have Komatsu, the second largest worldwide manufacturer of construction, mining and utility equipment, select RB Asset Solutions to grow visibility for its used equipment stock in over 20 European countries. We are so happy to see the tools and services included with RB Asset Solutions are already helping many OEMs and other large companies around the world.”
