For any vehicle recycler or parts supplier from businesses big or small – an opportunity to inter-trade
Tom Hayward from I Need Spares is using his downtime while in COVID-19 lockdown to think how vehicle dismantlers can earn extra revenue by inter-trading between themselves. In the coming months, he intends to build a platform for any recycler or parts supplier to be able to search stock availability from all users and fulfil their customer requirements when they have not got an item in stock.
To help him achieve this, he is asking fellow recyclers to fill in a short questionnaire so that he understands how best its users will benefit from the platform.
“I would like to gather some information along with any comments you may have on Inter-trading websites.
I am proposing a website where you / the business can search through a database (that is made up of your stock quantities along with any other businesses who have joined) to find the part required for your customer in the quickest possible time. This, in turn, helps you retain your customer base and avoids you not being able to fulfil a request.
The aim of the platform is for any recycler or parts supplier to be able to search stock availability from all users and fulfil their customer requirements when they have not got an item in stock. In turn, it will help all users move their own stock as another user may have a buyer for it!
I would love to get some insight into current B2B inter-trading thoughts, and I have made a simple questionnaire. I have already made a start on the platform which I would like to make LIVE for testing on the 1st of May. Please share to any business, big or small as this is for everyone.”
