Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Charlotte, NC, AutoAPR offers lead generation website plugin tools for auto dealers that help consumers understand what they can afford. Hundreds of auto dealers around the country use AutoAPR’s website tools to help customers generate personal payment estimates, find vehicles in dealers’ current inventory that fit with their budgets, view their credit ratings, and schedule test drive appointments. AutoAPR’s founders Dan Mayer, CEO, and Daniel Congrove, CTO, and their employees will join the TradePending team. 

“We partnered with Capstreet last year to create a foundation for a new platform to fast track innovation in the automotive software industry, and our acquisition of AutoAPR is our first step towards that goal,” said Brice Englert, CEO of TradePending. “TradePending and AutoAPR pair very well together. We both share the same end goal of arming both the dealership and end consumer with better information about the car buying process, with a similar mission and vision to provide transparency and help dealerships grow their businesses.”

“Joining TradePending is truly a great opportunity for our employees and customers to be part of a fast growing company dedicated to improving the automotive buying process,” said Dan Mayer, CEO of AutoAPR. “With similar target customers, TradePending’s team can immediately begin selling our products and expand our reach. We couldn’t be more excited to join the TradePending family.”

“Today’s consumers are entering the most competitive car buying market in decades, and we believe dealers that can demystify the process will have an advantage,” said Adrian Guerra, partner at Capstreet. “This is a synergistic combination that Capstreet expects will benefit both companies, with many cross-selling opportunities ahead. We welcome the AutoAPR team, and look forward to supporting TradePending’s ongoing growth.”
