Providing dealers and customers with online technical information on its product was the catalyst to relaunch the Daewoo Buses website.

The revamped website went live mid-June and Asia Motors (Australia) Company Director Bruce Campbell says dealer and service agent feedback has been positive.

"The website is telling our dealers and customers what they need to know," he says.

Campbell says the site has a much greater depth of technical detail on the product range.

"Any operator or dealer with a Daewoo bus can now go to the website and access service manuals, parts manuals, and technical information," he says.

Campbell adds that Daewoo dealers can now look up technical specifications on the buses online and learn a lot more about the product they are selling.

The bus sales feature of the Daewoo website has been enhanced for our customers to keep pace with any of the on going product improvements.

"We will add second-hand vehicles to the website on the used vehicle page as they become available," he says.

Asia Motors (Australia) Daewoo Bus range has several models: a 43-passenger midi school or charter bus; the popular 57-61-passenger school bus come charter bus;
the larger three-axle 71-passenger school bus, charter or coach; and the ultra-low-floor urban city bus with wheelchair accessibility.

"Our niche market is the country school bus operators with one bus or to the major fleet operators," Campbell says.

Campbell adds that coach companies servicing the mining industry have taken to the Daewoo product, with a number of Western Australian operators including Adams Coach Lines and Go West putting the heavy-duty chassis to the test in a variety of on and adverse off-highway conditions.

He says to complement the Daewoo dealer network beyond
its head office at Minto in Sydney’s west, the company has appointed independent truck and heavy-vehicle repairers, along with selected bus operators with appropriate facilities, as parts, warranty service agents.

"If we have a sticky problem we have a roving technical person who can be on site within 24 hours anywhere in Australia and is also available for onsite product training as required," he says.

Campbell says the company has a strong forward order book, with a number of existing customers
ordering replacement buses as they are required.

A sample of the Daewoo Bus range will be on show at the upcoming 2010 BusVic Expo in Melbourne.

Campbell says two Daewoo models, the two-axle school bus and three-axle coach class bus, will be at the Moonie Valley racecourse event.

"We will be down there with bells and whistles," he says.
