Inventory Management is Not a Desk Job
Like your inventory, your team is constantly on the move. Whether it’s your buyer going from auction to auction, your appraiser checking on trades, or your lot manager stocking vehicles, everyone is always on the go.
Mobile technology is the great enabler. It allows dealers to seamlessly link across departments and integrate complex data sets throughout the process.

- Empowering multiple users to increase appraisal speed and transparency
- Providing real-time push notifications on an offer, whether buying or selling
- Moving vehicles into inventory in one simple step
- Launching vehicles to multiplatform listings
Careful examination of a vehicle’s daily profitability can be your secret weapon. Mobile seamlessly links and drives profitability across departments, allowing dealers to generate more revenue more efficiently on the sales floor and in the service drive.
Comprehensive analytics suites are available to the average dealer. The real-time access consumers have to accurate data has leveled the playing field. A progressive dealer must use mobile tools to stay a step ahead in this “democratization” of the sales process. Choosing a strategic technology partner becomes vital in making use of the right tools for the job.
Mobile ensures inventory is both carefully monitored and widely advertised.
