ATLANTA — Manheim announced the launch of Manheim Express, a mobile app for dealers. Another 24/7 option within the Manheim Marketplace, Manheim Express is a fast, easy, and self-service way for dealers to list and sell inventory right from their lots or in-lane in the world’s largest wholesale marketplace, said Grace Huang, president of Cox Automotive Inventory Solutions.
“Manheim Express is a whole new channel and a whole new way to do business in the Manheim Marketplace. We are bringing the power of the Manheim Marketplace to the dealer’s lot, in the palm of their hand. On top of that, we are launching the industry’s only wholesale guaranteed first bid and are integrating 3D and 360‑degree vehicle imaging technology that leapfrogs the competition,” Huang said.
After completing a few quick steps in the Manheim Express mobile app, dealers will have all the information they need to evaluate a vehicle so that they can decide to take a Guaranteed First Bid, list it in the Manheim Marketplace, order an inspection or consign it to a Manheim operating location. Among its features is a tool designed to allow dealers to create their own 3D images.
“Our products are focused on creating intelligent 3D imaging,” said Radu Rusu, CEO of Fyusion, which partnered with Manheim to develop the tool. “Any dealer will be able to easily create a fully tagged interactive 3D image from their Android or iOS phone, that's viewable on any device - mobile or desktop.”
Launching this summer, Manheim Express is one of several solutions that are being integrated into the Manheim Marketplace. Manheim Marketplace has a variety of solutions designed to allow clients to buy and sell from their lots, comprising Manheim.com, OVE and now ManheimExpress.com as well as OEM-specific marketplaces.
