Piscataway, NJ, February 23, 2011 – DealerApp Vantage, a software development company that leads the industry in mobile application (apps) design and development for auto dealers, today announced that the company enjoyed unprecedented growth in 2010 and its mobile applications are now used by more than 230 auto dealers nationwide. In just the first year of business, from January 2010 through January 2011, the company increased in the number of applications (apps) sold to dealerships by over 3500% and has eclipsed the 100,000 download plateau.
“The growth that DealerApp Vantage experienced in its first year is attributable to a variety of things. One is the timing of DealerApp. We have seen the automotive community start to embrace mobile technology in the marketplace in the past year as dealers realize the need to connect with customers in ways they never could in the past. We are all witnessing a world shift toward the smartphone. Dealers and the automotive community will either adjust with the shift, or play an expensive game of catch up later,” said Ed Louis DealerApp Vantage Co-founder/CEO.
