ATLANTA – To help dealers take full advantage of its mobile apps, Manheim will offer live product demonstrations at the 14th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition in Orlando, Fla., May 7-9. Manheim staff will be on-hand to share ‘Best Kept Secrets’ with dealers for quick and easy access to decision-making data.
Unveiled at the National Automobile Dealers Convention & Expo in February, Manheim’s digital tools empower dealers to maximize productivity, increase efficiency and embrace game-changing technology. Dealers credit Manheim for simplifying processes with mobile solutions to challenges on and off the lot.
“The free myMobileListing app, which enables dealers to create listings straight from their lots, is increasing sales,” said Shannon Adams of DAB Auto World & Leasing in Wake Forest, N.C. “We are using it, and we are getting units sold because of it.”
Hamilton Hudson of Al’s Car Lot in Woodbury Heights, N.J., says almost every car he listed on OVE.com, “has a seller disclosure made using the myMobileListing app. We average about seven to ten cars being sold on OVE.com. The app has made listing vehicles much easier for us and cut down on evaluation time of cars listed. It is very thorough and ensures I don’t miss any details.”
Using an iPad, iPhone or Android device, dealers can tap into myMobileListing to list vehicles in the Manheim marketplace and disclose vehicle condition information. Dealers can post up to 24 images and five short videos, which can be stitched into a virtual walk-around to better demonstrate the car’s condition and provide transparency to customers.
“Whether it’s creating a seller disclosure, listing a vehicle, conducting searches or managing auction check-out, dealers tell us that our digital tools are easy to use and save them time,” said Joe George, senior vice president of product development, Manheim.
Since Simulcast on Mobile’s launch, customers have submitted more than 6,000 bids and purchased nearly 500 units. Later this year, Simulcast on Mobile will available on the Android platform.
