CARMEL, USA: ADESA, a business unit of KAR Auction Services, has announced the launch of its Marketplace mobile app, available for free for iPhone and iPad users.
Registered auto dealers can use this tool to find, research, price and purchase inventory, both online and at the auction.
At auction, the Marketplace mobile app saves dealers time. Using the GPS function, dealers can quickly determine a vehicle's location on the auction lot. Then, using their mobile device's camera, dealers can scan the VIN to link directly to vehicle history reports.
On their iOS devices, dealers can use Marketplace to search across all ADESA inventory offerings, zoom in to see details of photos, link to vehicle history and condition reports, as well as ADESA's Market Guide to research pricing, and create Watch Lists to track vehicles of interest. Once a buying decision has been made, dealers can bid and buy vehicles directly from their devices -- anywhere, anytime.
The Marketplace mobile app works in tandem with the LiveBlock mobile app, released earlier this year, to connect customers with all ADESA auction locations. Both apps are free to download from ADESA.com/mobileapps or text ADESA to 89800.
