NAPLES, Fla. — Car Lister, a web application that allows dealers and consumers to instantly list, buy and sell new and pre-owned vehicles directly from their mobile devices, has announced a partnership with eLEND Solutions to integrate its credit application product with Car Lister’s platform.
The partnership will provide Car Lister's network of dealers access to eLEND Solutions suite of integrated credit, identification and finance solutions, providing customers instant pre-qualification and direct access to near-final payment terms from multiple lender programs — and dealerships a greatly streamlined process that they control, officials said.
Once they've found their car, buyers can now complete the entire pre-approval process through the Car Lister app, selecting their loan preference, payment options, term and place a down payment to hold the vehicle.
"Our primary goal with Car Lister has always been to bring the car buying experience into the 21st century with the first ever social platform for selling vehicles online," said Bryan Harmon, founder and CEO of DreamWare, the parent company of Car Lister. "This partnership with eLEND Solutions provides customers and dealers an added layer of convenience by bringing a transparent and instant financial application into the palms of their hands."
"eLEND Solutions is leading the charge in creating a truly connected car-buying experience for automotive retailing, cutting the time it takes to buy a car from hours to minutes,” said Pete MacInnis, CEO of eLEND Solutions. “The integration with the Car Lister platform promises a streamlined workflow for dealers and a seamless in-store experience for shoppers, all of which should increase both profits and customer satisfaction."
Operating in Beta since October 2014, Car Lister allows for a seamless integration with auto dealers' existing systems, and lets private sellers upload and list vehicles for sale and buyers shop for new and pre-owned cars from any smartphone, tablet or desktop. The application also generates titles and vehicle descriptions, allows for the upload of images and video, and includes a full vehicle history report at no cost. Car Lister has been officially available to users and dealers since January 2015.
