Mobile apps are hot. According to Statista, over 1.6 million apps are available for download in the Google Play App Store. There are apps for listening to music, playing games, staying connected, monitoring the weather, and a growing number of apps to support a wide variety of business goals. The Dominion Inventory (IVM) Mobile App, available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, is an easy-to use mobile inventory management application that gives dealers the power to manage and merchandise their entire inventory from anywhere.
Since its debut in 2010, the Dominion IVM Mobile App has continued to evolve with the marketplace. Our goal has always been to provide dealers with everything they need in order to manage and merchandise vehicles from the palm of their hands. To that end, we’ve released multipleenhancements and increased functionality, giving dealers the flexibility to stay in control of their inventory no matter where they are — on the lot, at the auction, or anywhere. Here are just three of the ways you and your dealer staff can get the most out of the IVM Mobile App.
Auction Location Awareness and Run Lane Details
You can set up alerts to automatically notify your auction/used car buyers when they are approaching an upcoming or current auction. They will automatically receive the run list and market pricing information so they can assess the vehicles, perform a quick appraisal and establish top bid price before heading to the auction. It’s sure to make auction visits more effective.
Quick Vehicle Search and On-the-Fly Merchandising
Your sales team can quickly search for specific vehicles and keep on-the-lot customers engaged by sending ebrochures and videos directly to their smartphone. It’s one more way to generate excitement for your vehicles and keep car shoppers on your lot.
Upload Photos, Update Vehicle Information and More
Internet Managers as well as other sales users can quickly batch upload photos, add or remove vehicles, and update vehicle price, mileage or comments with just a few clicks. Imagine the enhanced shopper experience from the ability to eliminate a potentially embarrassing situation when a vehicle of interest has already been sold. IVM Mobile App is an ideal way to ensure online inventory is current, accurate, and ready for sale as quickly as possible.
