CHICO, Calif., Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Work Truck Solutions, the first online platform that enables commercial inventory searches by body type and chassis, today announced the number one most searched for truck body in the fourth quarter of 2015 was Service Bodies, by a large margin. The second most searched truck body was the Cutaway Van, with the Platform Body rounding out the list as the third most searched.
This data represents a total of nearly 60,000 searches completed in the last quarter of 2015 by online visitors of dealerships currently using Work Truck Solutions. Here are the top 5 most searched truck bodies, based on the data:
- Service Bodies (20.00%)
- Cutaway Vans (11.40%)
- Platform Bodies (10.81%)
- Cargo Vans (10.79%)
- Service Utility Vans (9.71%)
Work Truck Solutions enables online visitors to view, filter and find commercial trucks by body style and chassis, a missing element in the search for truck inventory up until now. Dealers who use the solution also have access to back-end analytics, showing them which body types and chassis are being searched the most often, helping them reduce flooring costs and better estimate which trucks to stock.
"A frustration we often see in dealerships is difficulty deciding which truck bodies to stock due to incomplete data on what is most popular or selling most quickly in their market," said Kathryn Schifferle, CEO and Founder of Work Truck Solutions. "With Work Truck Solutions, our dealers can use their back-end reports to quickly reveal which bodies are being requested most often, helping them stock appropriately. This data represents a flooring goldmine for dealers."
In addition to a visual library of body styles and the back-end reporting capabilities, Work Truck Solutions also offers dealers access to their Online Dealer Trade Network, a global search feature that enables dealers to track down, buy and sell commercial inventory on lots across the country.
"Our Online Dealer Trade Network is a great way for dealerships to offer a variety of body styles without the high flooring costs associated with infrequently requested truck bodies," says Schifferle. "It opens up inventory across the United States."
