MSX International and Autorola Group sign strategic teaming agreement, offering an innovative IT solution to the fleet and remarketing space
Cologne, February 3rd, 2020
MSX International (MSX) and Autorola Group (AUTOROLA) are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic teaming agreement to provide the European automotive market with an end-to-end, fully integrated fleet and remarketing solution to accelerate business transformation and enable companies in the fleet and mobility space to become high performers.
For more than 25 years, MSX has worked closely with vehicle manufacturers around the world, supporting them in maximizing value and achieving measurable success through an innovative portfolio of automotive business solutions and services. As a global business process outsourcing (BPO) provider in the automotive space, MSX is now accelerating into the fleet business to offer OEMs a global managed services solution.
AUTOROLA is a global leader in online remarketing and automotive IT solutions for professional used car and fleet management. The teaming agreement is focused on Autorola Solutions (a business unit of Autorola Group) which offers lean fleet services based on state-of-the-art online systems. These work together to support efficient fleet management processes from acquisition to disposal for fleet, OEM and leasing companies.
The teaming agreement builds on the long-standing relationship between the two companies and aims to provide an end-to-end, integrated, web-based and modular fleet and remarketing solution that covers the entire lifecycle of fleet vehicles – from in-fleet and de-fleet processes to managing vehicle resale and post-sale services.
Two market leaders join forces to revolutionize the fleet and remarketing space and provide solutions to key challenges
In today’s highly competitive and growing fleet market, traditional fleet management models rely on multiple local or regional processes and systems which limit performance in the value chain. Therefore, it’s critical that companies operating in the European fleet and remarketing arena must, in the short term:
• Manage their businesses at a regional level, not just focus on the national market
• Connect easily with and leverage capabilities of multiple potential suppliers along the value chain
• Deploy mobility services
• Accelerate vehicle time to market to mitigate depreciation and lower costs
• Digitalize fleet vehicle lifecycle processes for accuracy and speed
• Use new retail channels for improved sales, brand recognition and customer loyalty
“By teaming strategically with AUTOROLA, we are able to enhance and expand our offering to our customers in the field of fleet and remarketing. The goal is to enable them to overcome key challenges and pain points that currently have a negative effect on their profit as well as to provide them with the right tools to seize market opportunities and support their digital future,” said Rob van Rijswijk, Vice President Product Management, MSX International. “Through this agreement and due to the innovative capabilities of our open and fully integrated solution, MSX will be empowered to act as the fleet and remarketing integrator, connecting additional, specialized third-party providers to one BPO platform.”
Peter Groftehauge, Autorola Group CEO, said, “Our strategic partnership with MSX brings forward a unique offering that is based on specialization, industry knowledge and cutting-edge IT solutions. The combination of our automotive expertise will bring fleet and operational performance to the next level.”
