Commenting on the new installation, Phil Smith, Founder and CEO of Phil Smith Auto Group, stated, "RedBumper simplifies the entire process of inventory management and brings it into the 21st century. My staff doesn’t have to be tied to their desks to access reports or buy lists, but can be anywhere scanning, appraising, bidding and pricing cars. It's like having the dealership in your pocket, wherever the day takes you! We believe we can be much more productive with this system. RedBumper is taking the next steps and really bringing needed innovation and tools to the industry.”
The new RedBumper system is entirely Smartphone-centric and enables auto dealers to achieve faster turns, higher profits and volume sales, all at around 1/3 the cost of current products on the market. It also enables dealers to capture any and all inventory opportunities including existing service customers, trade-ins, auctions, and private consumer listings. The company will be demonstrating its entire new product suite at the 12th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition, April 3-5, in Orlando, FL, booth # 232.
RedBumper was founded by Bruce Thompson, former CEO and founder of American Auto Exchange (AAX). Thompson is credited for creating and pioneering the modern day inventory tools that are broadly used in dealerships across the United States.
When AAX was acquired by JM Family Solutions in 2005 it was the management tool of choice for 4 out of the top 5 largest dealer groups in the country. Thompson is once again introducing revolutionary tools to the industry with the launch of RedBumper.
“I’m very excited to be working with this fantastic dealer group. It'll bring fresh ideas that enable us to keep pushing the envelope. No software system works without processes and great management. That said, our tools will be a homerun in this well managed organization,” said RedBumper founder Bruce Thompson.
