Technology Developed in Collaboration with eBay Motors
SAN DIEGO, CA (May 10, 2010) – Hollander, a Solera company (NYSE: SLH), and a leading supplier of business solutions for automotive recyclers, today announced the launch of Hollander e-Link, an advanced e-commerce solution developed in collaboration with eBay Motors for the automotive recycling industry. The exclusive agreement signed last year provides consumers easy access to the largest inventory of recycled parts and accessories on the Web. Hollander e-Link brings auto recyclers' supply of parts seamlessly to the eBay Motors demand engine, the largest online marketplace, reaching more than 13 million unique visitors monthly.(i)
"Our goal is to provide automotive recyclers with technology that increases sales and improves profits. We're maximizing their business opportunities with no listing fees, automated workflows to eliminate the burden on staff, and instant access to a world-wide consumer base that shops 24 hours a day, 365 days a year," said Rich Lauria, General Manager of Hollander. "We're uniquely positioned to offer the deep integration and automation between inventory and sales that makes selling on eBay Motors simple and efficient. We continue to work with eBay Motors to further enhance the value proposition. The response from our clients has been tremendous, with over $3.6M in gross sales generated during the pilot program alone. We expect consumer demand for recycled parts will continue to grow as they make conscious decisions to support a greener environment and save money."
"Hollander has helped us simplify our eBay sales tremendously," said Dawn Smith of Kirchhayn Auto Salvage. "Managing it all is much simpler even though our listings have increased many times over. The end result is that our eBay sales have more than doubled since we started using Hollander and it hasn't cost us one cent."
"Selling parts via Hollander e-Link is cost effective. I only pay when a part is sold," said Michelle McMasters, International sales manager, Bill Smith Auto Parts.
Hollander e-Link is available to Hollander PowerLink® Yard Management System customers in the US and Canada. For more information on Hollander e-Link, call 1-800-825-0644.
