The Autos 2020 went off with a bang at St George’s Park on Thursday 16th January, as 200 team members from across Cox Automotive came together to celebrate the achievements and successes of our people over the last 12 months.
The night was a double celebration for the AIMS team, with Karen Raybould winning the Autos Hidden Hero Award, while the wider team could reflect on the successful completion of the rollout of the AIMS platform to the Manheim Auctions and Vehicle Solutions network. The final branch to be deployed, Manheim Birmingham, held their first sale event using AIMS on Monday 20th January.
Ian Fisher, MD of Kingfisher states "It is just over four years since we started working on the Auction Information Management System (AIMS) and it has been quite a journey. There have been some testing moments along the way, but everyone involved in the development and delivery of AIMS has worked tirelessly to reach this milestone. This is a testament to the Spirit and People that make Cox Automotive the organisation it is.".
With the rollout complete, the AIMS team will continue to focus on building new features and functionality that will allow the wider business to further leverage the technological and operational efficiences that the platform offers.
