Among the 456 ELV centers that use the management software College, 174 of them (20% more than in 2019) resold used parts on the internet marketplaces made available to them by Opisto.
Thus, congratulates the Toulouse company, “in 2020, our Opisto.fr sites, for individuals, and Opisto.pro, for repairers (21,500 registered), generated nearly 17 million euros in turnover, with a respective jump of 28% and 41% “.
“We don’t sell the same thing over the counter as we do online, comment Gérard Davat, manager of an ELV center in Goncelin (38). We have, for example, rediscovered and sold nuggets, such as “exotic” engines. Online sales are the future; people move less and less, especially nowadays, but still have their smartphones with them “.
The national offer offered on the Opisto platforms relates to a stock of 3.2 million re-used parts (+ 26% in 2020), i.e. one third of the parts recorded by computer in the Opisto DMS (+ 13% in 2020).
The average basket of Opisto.pro went from 140 euros in 2018 to 111 euros in 2020 and primarily concerns bumpers and optics. The average basket on opisto.fr has risen to 80 euros.
“With the first confinement and the cessation of activity of many of our customers, we suffered a loss of more than 70% of our turnover. (which does not include the sale of PRE) that we caught up on the rest of the year to finish up 6% (to nearly 3.15 million euros, Editor’s note) “, indicates Laurent Assis Arantes, co-founder and CEO of Opisto.
Generating strong profitability (profit of 636,000 euros in 2019), the company has international ambitions which have motivated a wave of recruitment of 15 new employees and the creation of 10 new positions which bring the team to 30 employees.
