A New Year….A New Look : macnabtransit.com
On behalf of myself and everyone at Macnab Transit Sales Corp I would like to welcome you to the all new macnabtransit.com!
Before we get started on our plans for 2015; 2014 was both an exciting and trying year. Like any business there are always hurdles to over come, some of which can be predicted, others, not so much. I would like to personally thank each and every one of our valued customers for your support and in some cases, your patience. The industry wide chassis shortage in ’14 created havoc on all bus manufacturers and led to some substantial delays in production which resulted in delayed deliveries. For all of our customers out there, thank-you for your patience, your understanding and for keeping your trust in Macnab to be your bus supplier of choice. Despite some of the unique hurdles that presented themselves this year the marketplace responded extremely well to our market initiatives we put in place and I am pleased to announce we had a record setting year for commercial bus sales!
We have already blasted out of the gates for 2015 with lots of exciting new initiatives. First off the new macnabtransit.com is the most advanced dealer website in the Canadian bus business and I can safely say it is only operating at about 50% capacity right now. Over the coming months you will be greeted with new, industry-first, features to better improve your web-based experience with Macnab. This will all be in an effort to help make the purchase process and your decision as easy and convenient as possible.
Multimedia will continue to play an increasingly large role in our business model in ’15 as we look for better ways to interact with our customers nation-wide. You will see the introduction of helpful how-to videos, product walk-around’s, factory tour’s and other initiatives to bring you to our front door…virtually of course. We were fortunate enough to deliver buses to each and every Canadian province this year, from as far East as Goose Bay Labrador to as far West as Nanaimo, British Columbia. Our multimedia plans we hope will give our clients everywhere the experience as though we are next door neighbours.
The last quarter of ’14 saw the addition of 3 new staff members to our team, each bringing with them a set of special skills to compliment our existing team members. I am also excited to announce the addition of another member to our team. Kevin Jacobs, a proven sales-leader in the Canadian bus industry is re-joining Macnab! Kevin really needs no introduction, most of you out there likely already know him and understand what a great addition he will be to our team.
There are many more great projects coming down the pipeline for 2015 but we will unveil those as they are released. For all of our current customers, thank you very much for your support and business. For those out there that we have not had the pleasure of dealing with I urge you to give us a shot…I am confident in saying there simply is no better team in the bus industry.
I wish you all a happy and successful 2015.
