New Online Used Car Marketplace Platform - Auto Market Direct Launches In Vancouver
Auto Market Direct Bringing digital transformation to the used car supply chain, and free ads for dealers.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Feb. 1, 2018; Auto Market Direct, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of our online used car marketplace where sellers SNAP, POST, SELL and where buyers SEARCH, BID, BUY all from their mobile device, tablet or desktop, is now available in BETA to consumers and dealers in the U.S.
"Our mission was to create an efficient and effective used car marketplace where sellers and buyers can connect confidently…in app, on mobile, by email, by sms/text and by phone …and that is exactly what we have built" said Auto Market Direct Founder and CEO Steven J. McAuley. "I am delighted to launch phase one of our project that is the culmination of many months of design and development by our diverse team of product and technical resources supported by increased investment by the company"
The used vehicle supply chain is inefficient and needs to be infused with speed and simplicity that new technologies must provide. The traditional physical auction model has not sufficiently evolved and with continued strength with used vehicle sales, off-lease volumes growing and profit margins feeling pressure the entire used vehicle supply chain must evolve. The Auto Market Direct team set out to create a unique platform with the tools that modern technology has to offer, where buyers and sellers can connect easily. Vehicle listings posted through the desktop site or mobile app are clear and easy to navigate, thanks to the versatile search engine, which can be fine-tuned down to the preference of make, model, price, location, and more. Users can browse a wide selection of trucks, SUV's, sedan's, minivan's, coupe's and convertible's by popular brands in the U.S., save their favorites and contact the seller directly through the mobile app.
McAuley and Co-Founder & CTO Joseph Cohen are veterans of the automotive industry and experts with automotive marketplace products and platforms. As the creators of Privacy Shield, a suite of privacy and safety products for users of online marketplaces, they have a keen understanding of user experience and the importance of a mobile-first technology philosophy when building sophisticated marketplace platforms.
The platform is built for consumers and used car dealerships that are looking for a great online marketplace to advertise their cars and reach a pool of customers in a very affordable way. Franchised and independent used car dealers and wholesalers can post inventory for free, create a single ad using ad creation tools or connect through their Dealer Management System (DMS) data providers. Even fleet and leasing companies can comfortably post their offers and bypass traditional auction channels to connect to potential buyers.
Auto Market Direct is available from its official website http://amarketdirect.com and the mobile app can be downloaded from the iTunes store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/auto-market-direct/id1327725004?mt=8
Future versions of the platform will include an online bid and counter-bid function, will feature a full range of additional products and services, a suite of price guidance tools and an Instant Offer Program ("IOP")
