WebBuy Rides Digital-Retailing Momentum into Digital Dealer Conference & Expo

From their mobile phone, tablet, laptop or from a digital device at the dealership, customers can lock in a price, get an instant trade-in offer, receive real-time loan/lease approval, and move on to checkout.

WebBuy will share its success story and demonstrate to dealers how its fully integrated car-buying application is revolutionizing the auto industry during the Digital Dealer Conference & Expo in Las Vegas Aug. 19-21, 2019.

The conference brings together dealer principals, general managers, sales managers, marketing directors and other top industry leaders to review the latest digital-retailing technology and strategies that will grow their businesses as they meet consumer needs.

At Booth 741, the WebBuy team will describe how its first-in-the-nation digital-retailing solution has been doing just that — helping dealerships boost profitability and satisfy car-buyers’ wishes, particularly among tech-savvy millennials who want an all-online, no-hassle, “Amazon-like” experience, when they purchase a vehicle.

Reagan Bendeck, general sales manager at Gosch Toyota in Hemet, CA, said the dealership is happy with the results since launching WebBuy on its website.

“WebBuy is a great product that has helped our transition into the online-buying experience. The company stands by their promises and commitments,” Bendeck said.

WebBuy’s innovative app, developed by experienced car dealers looking for an end-to-end solution for selling cars online, works from a dealership’s website and allows buyers to shop, compare and select a vehicle from a dealer’s new-or-used inventory list.

From their mobile phone, tablet, laptop or from a digital device at the dealership, customers can lock in a price, get an instant trade-in offer, receive real-time loan/lease approval, and move on to checkout. Along the way, they also receive accurate tax/rebates/incentive and trade-in payoff information. The process is simple, user-directed, transparent and completed all online.

Dealerships like Gosch Toyota, a member of the Gosch Auto Group that owns six dealerships in Southern California, are happy with the results that WebBuy delivers. Their experience mirrors the digital-sales story being written at the hundreds of dealerships that now feature WebBuy.

Industry representatives wanting to learn more about how WebBuy connects today’s new consumers are encouraged to visit the WebBuy booth during the three-day Las Vegas event.

Millennials, the largest generation in the U.S. representing one-third of the population, are reshaping the American economy. They eschew traditional car-buying behavior — spending hours at dealerships — and embrace the efficient, all-online transaction they find at WebBuy.

“Our digital-retailing solution helps dealers do business with a whole new demographic of customers,” said co-founder Tom Murray. “It lets dealerships retain full control of all aspects of pricing and profitability while letting digital buyers find and purchase an in-stock unit from the dealer’s current inventory — all online.”

Autosled Announces Multiple Product Upgrades

Improved shipment visibility and transporter payment system among updates affecting retail automotive dealers looking to ship cars and trucks.

Autosled announced that it has released multiple product improvements for its nationwide vehicle transport and logistics platform. As a disruptor in the mobility and digital logistics space with a proven track record of excellence, Autosled is constantly improving upon its existing products and infrastructure.

The most recent product rollouts improve functionality for transporter teams within the Autosled network. Providing additional visibility into the available loads along each driver’s individual route saves time while also providing improved service to dealerships needing to move vehicles faster. In addition, Autosled’s new one-click reassignment function saves both dispatchers and drivers significant time, especially when a change needs to be made while a vehicle is en route. Large transport companies with multiple drivers will greatly benefit from these process improvements. Autosled’s mobile application, iOS version 3.1.1, now includes a popup alert informing the driver if the load requires an enclosed trailer, contains any inoperable vehicles, or necessitates special instructions required by the shipper. This has been especially helpful as Autosled increases its coverage at ports and railyards nationwide. These considerations provide that only drivers who can meet the specifications drive to pick up these vehicles- cutting down on pickup cancellations and wasted time.
