Dealer Simplified launched version 3.0 of their Dealer Auction App
Auction Simplified leverages it’s partnerships with companies like vAuto, CarsforSale, VinSolutions and DealerTrack among others to make the vehicle launch and integration seamless for the seller.
“Integration with our partners is the key, because we avoid data entry duplication. Example, if the used car manager appraising the car does a great job of booking out the vehicle in vAuto, the wholesale manager can recall that data in Auction Simplified, tweak the condition report and launch the car on their auction in moments,” said Phil Gates, CTO of the company.
In the past, dealers would have to fill in a paper condition report and take photos with a digital camera, then spend the second half of their day typing out the details again at their desk computer. Dealers using Auction Simplified can provide their marketing staff with an iPad mini and load the vehicles right from their wholesale lot in half the time.
“You can run your entire auction, from your phone or tablet,” said Dave Kaiser, Cofounder. “With integration, we have made it so simple; you can now launch a car on your auction from start to finish in less than four minutes.”
The Wholesale Buyer Experience: This version also includes several upgrades to the buyer experience, allowing wholesaler and independent dealers the ability to bid from the car while they are attending dealer bid sale auctions.
“Our company focuses heavily on the wholesale buyer experience. After all, the buyer is the most important part of a successful wholesale auction. We want the buyer experience, while bidding on dealer auctions, to be smooth and quite frankly simple,” said Kevin Leigh, Cofounder of the company.
In versions 1 and 2, the app focused on allowing buyers to view condition reports and search for vehicles of interest (SRP), view vehicle details (VDP) and of course bid, via our silent, open bid, make an offer or buy it now auctions. Now, with v3, the auction platform is a full buyer and seller B2B app.
The App is available for IOS and Android. Auction Simplified also offers its highly responsive web app, with essentially is available on any web-enabled device.
