Sinclair Group Embraces Digitisation to Transform Business Performance
Sinclair Group is set to reap the benefits of digital document management following the news that every one of its 20 sites will use iDealFile – the MotorDocs digital deal file platform.
Sinclair Group is an award-winning, family-run dealer group with over 75 years of experience in automotive retail. It is the largest franchised retail group in South Wales and represents several of the most popular brands. Its teams sell new and used vehicles as well as offering MOTs, maintenance and repairs.
Group Managing Director, Andy Sinclair, started discussions with MotorDocs in the autumn after both organisations identified a synergy in growth aspirations and views about how digitisation will play a fundamental role in the future of automotive retail.
Following subsequent product demonstrations - and insights from current users like Hutchings Motor Group about the genuine difference iDealFile can make – an implementation plan was agreed that will see the first Sinclair site installation commence in late January 2020 with the aim of completing a site-wide rollout by the end of July.
Commenting on the news, Sinclair said: “It quickly became apparent that iDealFile has been designed specifically for businesses like ours and we could see straight away how we could develop a positive relationship with the team and the system. iDealFile is purpose built for modern car dealerships and this gives me real confidence that everyone – from our sales administrators to senior management – will very quickly see the benefits of implementation.”
“This move will help us become even more efficient and effective. The minute iDealFile goes in, I know we are saving money. It’s that simple. Our teams can work more efficiently, our paper printing and storage requirements will reduce and everyone can be more productive.”
MotorDocs Joint Managing Director, Andy Mee, added: “It’s vital that retailers have the tools they need to work as efficiently and securely as possible. With iDealFile in place, organisations like Sinclair Group have a digital document solution that goes way beyond document storage.
“Our award-winning system has been specially designed to help automotive retail teams work quicker, safer and smarter with added environmental benefits. We look forward to the system rollout and to supporting Sinclair Group’s transition to a successful and profitable digital future.”
