DealersLink Releases Free Apps to Help Auto Dealers Shift to Online Sales

May 27 12:56 2020

Broomfield, CO, USA – DealersLink continues to release new features that allow auto dealers to capitalize on the shift to online buying. The latest release allows customers to submit their trade-in vehicle online, allowing a major part of the car deal to be done virtually.

The new feature is part of a free app from MotorCloud, a new consumer-facing site developed by DealersLink. It allows car shoppers to upload their trade-in vehicle data to the cloud, then share a portable link with anyone — a car dealer, their insurance agent, their bank, a friend, etc. They can text, email, or skype the vehicle info.

“Ever since Covid19 there has been a shift in the car business. Customers want to do even more of their car buying experience online, and that’s going to stick around once we get back to normal. So we’re creating tools that empower our dealers to offer that, and shoppers to access what they need,” said Mike Goicochea, CEO of DealersLink.

The MotorCloud app guides the user through a 33-point vehicle walk around, prompting the user to put in info add photos, and upload the vehicle to the cloud. They can share it with whoever they like, and submit it to Cloud Cash, where thousands of dealers on the DealersLink wholesale marketplace can bid on it.

“We’ve used this challenging time to listen to our dealers and create more tools that help them adapt to a new economic reality. We’re improving our customer interactions in the digital space and doing more car deals virtually. As more dealers are competing with online dealership models like Carvana, this enables them to level up,” said DealersLink VP of Sales Travis Wise.

Dealers can get a paid version, which allows them to embed the feature in their website, allowing them to take trades from customers. It also integrates with the DealersLink Fastbook appraisal app for dealers providing seamless evaluation of the customer trade.

DealersLink also added trade details into its customer brochures, so dealers can include trade appraisals as they are desking the virtual car deals.
