BSCAmerica, the parent company of Bel Air Auto Auction and Tallahassee Auto Auction has announced the development of a new mobile app that allows dealers to access auction information, perform search functions, and purchase vehicles online from their mobile devices.
The new app is a full-featured companion to BSCAmerica’s website which was launched to acclaim in 2012, says Michelle Nichols, BSC vice president.
"Our website is an indispensable tool, and we’re pleased to offer the new mobile app that makes its features available to our customers when they are on the go and don’t have access to their desktop computers or laptops,” said Nichols. “The app focuses quickly and directly on the tools our customers need to search auction inventory at both Bel Air Auto Auction and Tallahassee Auto Auction, evaluate vehicles, and bid using their mobile devices.”
BSCAmerica’s IT Manager Nick Pirovolidis reports that the app will be available in early October for IOS in the iTunes app store. The app will be available shortly afterward for Android platforms as well.
“Customers already using our website will find similar convenience with BSCAmerica’s mobile app,” Pirovolidis explains. “A simple login-in with an Auction Access ID will give immediate access to auction inventory.”
He notes that customers can view run lists, search vehicles by year/make and model, and bid on vehicles via simulcast sale. The mobile app also has a VIN scanning capability, and allows a dealer to order and send condition reports to the dealership. In addition, customers can store favorite searches and VINs for easy accessibility, and can receive notifications when one of those favorites is added to a run list at the auction.
“BSCAmerica’s new mobile app brings an additional level of convenience our website,” concludes Nichols. “Now our customers will have virtually unlimited access to the vehicles available at Bel Air Auto Auction and Tallahassee Auto Auctions, our bi-weekly GM Factory Auction, weekly Salvage /Inop auction, weekly public auctions, monthly Powersports and monthly Truck and Equipment Auction.”
BSC America companies are headquartered in Bel Air, Maryland and operate various full service companies including Bel Air Auto Auction and Tallahassee Auto Auction, which are members of ServNet.
