Market Trends app enhancement from Ritchie Bros. helps dealers understand assets
Ritchie Bros. has released an enhanced Market Trends application. This independent tool is now available to all Ritchie Bros. customers for purchase.
The Market Trends application allows customers to understand the strength of an asset class through in-depth analysis of quarterly Ritchie Bros. transaction history, including market trends, equipment price performance, asset valuation curves, and mix-adjusted price indexes.
"When you know the strength of an asset class, and can break it down by region and asset model, it allows users to make more educated decisions on when to buy and sell their assets," said Logan Mellott, Strategic Accounts Sales Director, Ritchie Bros. "In addition, the tool looks at asset valuation by age and usage—giving users a sense of what their equipment will be worth in the future. Additionally, by layering in the global Ritchie Bros. buyer information we can show market demand by geography at the make/model level. These types of insights represent the next step for data applications in our industry."
OEMs, dealers, finance companies, and fleet owners will use Ritchie Bros. Asset Solutions to better understand their own assets and market—creating a clear picture for what assets are owned, what assets are coming in on trade, and the overall state of the market. Additionally, it provides OEMs insight into brand performance and how to market and adapt their operating activities to maximize company assets.
