ADESA announced that it has launched its Marketplace app for the Apple Watch.
The original Marketplace app available on the iOS allows registered auto dealers to find, research, price and purchase vehicle inventory, both online and at ADESA auction locations across the country. The Apple Watch app includes many popular features of Marketplace such as “Watch Lists”, which tracks vehicles of interest, and GPS.
At auction, having this handy app on their wrists saves dealers time. With GPS, dealers can quickly locate a vehicle on the auction lot. They can build WatchLists of vehicles of interest, cars they recently bid on and even purchased vehicles. The Apple Watch app will alert the dealer when a Watch List vehicle is about to run in a physical auction lane. It also sends notifications when a dealer is outbid on an online vehicle auction on ADESA DealerBlock, so the dealer can take immediate action.
The Apple Watch app gives 24/7 access to data to help for better buying decisions. With a quick tap, dealers can access the ADESA Market Guide to research pricing and view national price averages on saved vehicles searches.
In addition, the Marketplace app has been enhanced with new features, including:
- An improved VIN scanner that links directly to vehicle history
- Updated condition report details, with tire condition and an inspection summary
- A “My Purchases” view with in-lane, LiveBlock and DealerBlock transactions
- Coupon code acceptance
- DealerBlock outbid notifications for iOS
The Marketplace mobile app is available at no cost for iOS and Android.
