Gainesville, GA – Black Book® announces exciting upgrades to their iPhone and Android Smart Phone Applications, including enhanced scanning support for all major auction bar codes, including “QR” codes, and functionality to support the capture of digital photos and videos. The application is currently available for the iPhone, and will be available for Android by the end of the month.
“We are very pleased with the new features in our suite of Smart Phone Applications “, said Tom Cross, President of Black Book. “We have now made it even easier for users to capture and manage vehicle information at the auction, on their lot, or wherever else they may be, directly from their Smart Phone.”
Dealers can now use their smart phones to scan and book a vehicle, access the vehicle’s history from CARFAX® or AutoCheck®, record photos or digital video of the vehicle, and store all of this information automatically in their vehicle list in a matter of moments without ever leaving the application. The ability to email this vehicle information back to the store, or directly to an interested buyer, has also been added.
“We understand that time is money for our users, and it’s important they can get the information they need and be able to circulate it quickly. Having, at their fingertips, the ability to get values, history reports, pictures of the vehicles, and send them off to a buyer or the dealership in minutes is crucial” continued Cross.
Cross concluded by saying “We believe that this combination of the latest in Smart Phone technology with the industries’ most accurate vehicle values sets a new bench mark in Smart Phone Applications for the used car industry. Our goal is to continue to deliver industry leading functionality and content to assist our customers in making timely and informed buying decisions.”
