We've already deployed iMarketAuto with Data-Whitening to hundreds of dealerships nationwide. These are auto retailers who want to continue to use their on-the-lot vendor, but at the same time, want greater control over their inventory
Beverly, MA (PRWEB) January 28, 2008
Leading auto dealer core technology provider DataOne Software, a division of Dominion Enterprises, today announced that its popular iMarketAuto inventory management program has been enhanced to support all major inventory management provider solutions. The new upgrade enables dealers using any inventory management platform, data collection tool and on-the-lot inventory management service to more effectively manage their online vehicle listings.
"As more and more dealerships choose to manage their own inventory, the need for a hybrid inventory management solution that provides both full and self-service options has emerged," said Jock Pereira, managing director, DataOne Software. "With iMarketAuto, dealers can continue to take advantage of their full-service solution while realizing the benefits of in-house inventory management and control."
Using a flexible and automated process, iMarketAuto captures data from on-the-lot service companies such as Dealer Specialties, Dealerskins, XiGroup, Homenet, CDMdata, etc. The information is then broken down, scrubbed, cleaned and rebuilt as an iMarketAuto inventory file with Data-Whitening, a new iMarketAuto feature. The inventory can then be managed from the iMarketAuto console, where dealers can change prices, add and remove vehicles, add seller notes, upload additional photos and print window stickers. Once updated, the inventory is available for broadcasting to online destinations.
IMarketAuto can be used to enhance the inventory listings of national automotive groups who want one clean interface to work with while retaining multiple on-the-lot inventory companies to take photos and print window stickers.
The software supports files in any format including XML, cumulative or single inventory types and contains the intelligence to map and clean hundreds of common and not-so-common inventory data points.
"We've already deployed iMarketAuto with Data-Whitening to hundreds of dealerships nationwide. These are auto retailers who want to continue to use their on-the-lot vendor, but at the same time, want greater control over their inventory," notes Pereira. "It's the first solution to bridge the gap between the full and self-service needs of dealers."
