Fenton, MO (PRWEB) September 26, 2005
Scott T. Derksen, senior vice president of technology and development of IRON Solutions, (http://www.ironsolutions.com) and John Hoffmann, manager of dealer support services of AGCO, (http://www.agcocorp.com) today announced the successful re-launch of the AGCO Machinelocator.com websites.
ÂAdding value to our dealer network is our passion,Â states Hoffmann. ÂWe partnered with IRON Solutions on Machinelocator.com (http://www.machinelocator.com) because the relationship is highly responsive and it also connects our dealers easily to IRONSearch.com (http://www.ironsearch.com) with no added input effort and very low costs. Together we have worked very hard to enhance our search capabilities and bring value to both our buyers and sellers of used AGCO products and competitive trade-ins.Â
ÂWe are very proud to have been able to respond to AGCOÂs needs in such a timely fashion,Â states Derksen. ÂIn addition to the look and feel re-alignment to the new corporate logo, which was announced today in concert with our release, we have been able to include enhanced navigation and localization of the site for our French and Spanish speaking visitors.Â
ÂWith over 100,000 user sessions per month our customers are very pleased with the machinelocator.com online marketplace. This has been a banner year for the machinelocator.com site as we have passed the milestone of 4,000,000 hits per month! We are also pleased to be a gateway to increased exposure on ironsearch.com, which adds an additional 14,000,000 hits and 220,000 monthly visitors. Combined the re-launched site offers a reach for our dealers that is unsurpassed in the entire industry,Â said Hoffmann.
ÂUsers tell us they love machinelocator.com (http://www.machinelocator.com),Â says Hoffmann. A recent dealer email from Pentagon Farm Center included these comments: ÂWe have found MachineLocator and IRONSearch to be one of the easiest to use for both the customer and the dealer and we have had over 1500 emails from buyers on the systems so far!Â
The new interface is a joint effort between the IRON Solutions (http://www.ironsolutions.com) development team, led by Derksen, and AGCOÂs Dealer Support Services Group in Duluth, GA. ÂWe really focused on AGCOÂs brand identity and worked to bring the user to the information they are looking for in the language of their choice.Â stated Derksen.
