ATLANTA, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — MyDealerLot (MDL) announced today the availability of their revolutionary Bloodhound™ product for locating vehicles using affordable Bluetooth Beacon technology.
MDL’s new solution has been built using proprietary trilateration technology that allows dealerships to install a simple and effective vehicle location system at a fraction of the cost of other similar solutions. Other Bluetooth systems available require costly infrastructure which drive up cost and maintenance. MDL’s solution is being heralded as truly innovative in its ability to track vehicles using nothing more than Bluetooth Beacons and a smart phone. Paired with reusable beacons with multi-year battery life makes the solution easy to use and maintain.
“The problem of locating a vehicle for dealerships has existed for years. In fact, MDL first looked to track vehicles using active RFID when it was initially founded in 2008. With the rapid advancement of Bluetooth technology and smart phones, we can deliver finite location services for dealers in ways and at costs not previously possible. The proprietary technology we utilize eliminates fixed Bluetooth readers, simplifies installation, and reduces both setup and ongoing costs. It also creates a significant competitive advantage that will keep MDL ahead of the competition,” said George Cresto, MDL Founder and CEO.
Bloodhound™ Inventory is capable of tracking inventory vehicles while Bloodhound™ Service will track service vehicles in the shop and throughout the service process with reusable hat tags. In early 2017 a drone will also be capable of triggering trilateration location updates. Visit our website for additional details.
