ATLANTA — Citing dealer feedback and increased demand, Manheim has rolled out three enhancements to its Manheim Express mobile app, starting with an expansion of the Manheim Express Concierge Service that launched in February.
“Dealer demand for our Concierge service is growing daily,” said Derek Hansen, vice president of Offsite Solutions at Manheim. “Sellers enjoy the advice our specialists provide, as well as the ability to move their inventory quickly without having to invest much of their own time in the process. Meanwhile, buyers have more vehicles available to purchase, as specialists help dealers get more vehicles into the wholesale marketplace faster.”
The app also gets enhanced “Make an Offer” capabilities, designed to help attract more buyers for Manheim Express listings by allowing dealers to select any combination of purchase options they want to offer potential buyers, ranging from “Bid,” to “Buy-Now” or “Make an Offer.”
Finally, Manheim’s Trade Desk team is also expanding. Created to build relationships with buyers and serve as a their “personal shopper,” the Trade Desk team works to identify vehicles of interest for buyers and help close deals for sellers.
“We launched the Manheim Express app because we heard our dealer clients wanted access to the Manheim Marketplace in the palm of their hand,” Hansen said. “The response from dealers has been phenomenal, and we’re continuing to bring new features and services that help make it even easier for them to buy and sell when and where makes the most sense for them.”
