IRVINE, Calif., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Wyper, best described as “Tinder for Cars,” is putting the mobile car shopping experience in the fast lane with the first-of-its-kind swipeable mobile search application for buying and selling vehicles. Wyper today announced its launch out of private beta and is currently available for free download on iOS and Android devices nationwide.
The innovative platform boasts an array of unique features tailored specifically to the consumer focusing on personalization, privacy and ease of use. Wyper speeds past the competition with a consumer first approach and learns users’ “likes” and “dislikes” to provide the largest selection of dealer sourced used vehicles for purchase.
Wyper founders, engineers, and investors bring a wealth of experience from such leading companies as Automotive.com, AutoTrader.com, Microsoft, Cern, MIT and NASA. Wyper.co has raised $1.4 million in seed funding led by Jason Phillips, co-founder of Automotive.com.
“Our goal is to simplify the car buying process and put the power back into the hands of the consumer,” said Wyper Founder Aaron Rosenthal. “With personalized results and unparalleled design, Wyper is modernizing the way consumers buy and sell cars online.”
The intelligent predictive search platform allows the consumer to simply swipe, or “wype,” through their results. In addition to the ability to swipe left and right, wyper offers a swipe down “filter” function that identifies the consumer’s personal preferences and starts to build the results based on those specific vehicle features.
The platform is designed to give consumers a single location to view the largest amount of listings from dealers nationwide, conveniently from their mobile phones. Better yet, the results are completely customized based on factors derived directly from the consumers themselves.
Buckle up, online car shopping just got a whole lot faster.
