, a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions
and the nation’s largest provider of comprehensive inventory management solutions, websites and marketing tools, announces the development of a new integration application (API) that provides real-time updates of all pricing and vehicle comment changes through vAuto.
Dealer Specialties, known in the industry as the leading provider of real-time inventory updates, now incorporates real-time inventory updates with vAuto. Customers can now make pricing and seller comments within vAuto and have these changes updated instantly inside their Dealer Specialties inventory management tool. For customers with vAuto and an integrated Dealer Specialties IVM and website product, this enhancement is significant, as it reduces the time to reflect vehicle price and comment updates online from hours to mere seconds.
The vAuto system is a suite of solutions that provides the auto industry’s only “live, real time” analysis of used vehicle markets, with up-to-the-minute information about used vehicle supply, demand and pricing tailored to specific dealership market areas. vAuto utilizes its Live Market Pricing, Appraising, Stocking, Merchandising and Publishing modules to provide proven, highly effective solutions required for successful used vehicle inventory management.
“We are always looking for increased functionality that will simplify inventory management processes and result in a quicker time to market for used vehicles,“ said Keith Jezek, vAuto’s President and CEO. “Dealer Specialties’ web distribution enhancement will allow our dealers to have their pricing decisions implemented instantaneously, offering them a real-time competitive advantage.”
“Price changes are critical in today’s fast-paced internet retail environment. Dealers who invest in pricing analytics tools have their finger on the pulse of the market. This real-time integration allows them to have their changes reflected in an increasingly time-sensitive industry. Our ability to leverage real-time inventory updates with vAuto dramatically empowers those customers that use both products,” said Glen Garvin, group general manager for Dominion Dealer Solutions.
