Boatshed vend plus vite que n'importe quel courtier?

Saturday, 29 March 2014

Selon les dernières statistiques publiées par Yachtworld en février 2014, il faut entre 550 et 300 jours pour vendre un bateau. Cette moyenne est basée sur 132 000 bateaux à vendre répartis sur 3525 courtiers qui utilisent Yachtworld. Chez Boatshed, la moyenne est de 225 jours pour vendre un bateau. Depuis la création de Boashed.com en 1999, la technologie et les processus de courtage ont évolué, sont toujours plus performants et permettent de vendre plus vite. Boatshed gère en permanence plus de 580 000 clients enregistrés, et leur permet grâce à l’outil informatique puissant et élaboré de leur proposer des bateaux qu’ils recherchent, de façon rapide et réfléchit. De plus, nous accompagnons nos clients tout le long de leur processus de recherche et notre système, permet de cibler au mieux les offres en fonction des critères qu’il aura sélectionné. Le challenge permanent de Boatshed est de réduire considérablement le temps de vente d’un bateau tout en gardant le service de courtage optimum et en assurant la vente au meilleur prix. Boatshed continue à œuvrer pour atteindre ces 3 buts, mais si le vrai but est de vendre un bateau au plus vite comme indique le titre de cet article, les chiffres parlent d’eux-mêmes.
