ATLANTA — Dealers can now appraise, stock, buy and sell automotive inventory with other dealers on the go with the new DealerMatch Andriod app.
The Android app complements the DealerMatch website and iOS app, enabling DealerMatch to bring direct access to its dealer-to-dealer marketplace to all dealers doing business through mobile devices.
“Time is money to car dealers, so convenience is key. We’ve seen a dramatic increase in both the number and frequency of DealerMatch members transacting via smartphones and tablets in the last six months,” said Greg Easterly, president of DealerMatch. “Nearly half of all vehicle offers on DealerMatch are accepted by members using our mobile app.”
DealerMatch members can take advantage of the mobile app to buy and sell retail ready vehicles, CPOs, fresh trades and exclusive sale inventory, without auction fees or middlemen. A key feature of the DealerMatch Android and iOS apps is the ability for sellers to scan a VIN, appraise a vehicle and list it directly to the DealerMatch marketplace for quick sale.
Interested buyers looking for similar vehicles receive an instant alert and can make offers right from their phone. Sellers can then respond immediately to offers and close the deal on the spot. DealerMatch members can also get comprehensive vehicle histories from AutoCheck and secure their purchases with the DealShield 100% purchase guarantee, officials said.
“Mobile technology has conditioned retail consumers to expect instant response when they are ready to buy, it’s time for dealers to reap the benefits too,” Easterly said. “Dealers can access other dealers’ inventory in our marketplace 24 hours a day, seven days a week from anywhere. Sourcing inventory more efficiently ultimately makes dealers money because it frees up time to devote to the retail side of their business or perhaps reclaim a few of their nights and weekends."
