In 2008, we conceptualized “GoBuyBid.com” originally as a platform to appraise cars. Consisting of multiple value guides and having the ability to communicate via “smartphone” (remember Blackberrys”?) with other dealers and wholesalers in the market.
Carzuz is the realization of “GoBuyBid.”
Then Carzuz, a car buying service, was launched in October of 2017. We tested it using Facebook Marketplace and ended up buying several cars in a short amount of time.
Bam...proof of concept. This changed the game. We decided to license this to dealerships.
Carzuz began beta testing in April of 2018 with our flagship dealer on a customized concierge tool. It performed so well, that they ended up replacing their website lead generating Kelley Blue Book tool with the Carzuz tool. Not too shabby, eh?
Then, they signed up two more stores within the company. With the product proven, it has rapidly morphed into the perfect marriage of automation and customer engagement.
Adaptive and integrating on multiple platforms, Carzuz allows the consumer to complete a majority of the car buying process digitally. Hence, delivering buyers without the old “song and dance”.
Time is a new profit center and Carzuz has helped dealers, salespeople and manufactures establish a more robust way of saving time in the car purchasing process.
