LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--5miles, the nation’s leading local marketplace app, has announced that the company is unveiling its auto dealer inventory integration program this week at the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association’s Convention & Expo in Las Vegas, the world's largest gathering of used vehicle dealers.
Dallas-based 5miles has established working relationships with many of the largest dealer inventory providers, such as CarsforSale.com, Dealer Car Search, AutoCorner, Frazer, HomeNet, DealerCenter, and V12. In addition, 5miles has also partnered with a leading third-party data management solutions provider for the auto industry which integrates with 75+ dealer management systems and inventory providers, allowing 5miles to connect its app’s marketing capabilities with more than 12,500 dealerships across North America.
“5miles has had enormous success in the used car category, with more than 2,000 vehicles sold on our marketplace each day,” Jonathan Bailey, the company’s Director of Sales & Business Development, said. “Having over 10,000 auto dealers use 5miles has prompted us to enhance our sales tools and integration so that this marketplace can be their most effective source of customer lead generation.”
Every day, over 60,000 car buyers search the 5miles marketplace, where sellers list an average of over 5,000 cars daily. To date, more than $2 billion in vehicle sales have occurred on 5miles.
In addition to inventory integration, 5miles is introducing a variety of profile enhancements for car sellers and buyers alike and certain lead generation products at the NIADA conference. The annual event, which brings together industry leaders to learn about new tools, services and technology, gives 5miles an opportunity to demonstrate new features like a VIN scanner that makes the car listing process faster as well as superior car search and filter functionalities.
“We want to make it as quick and easy as possible for people to list, find and purchase cars on 5miles—and for dealers to move their inventory through our marketplace more efficiently,” Rick Cantu, the company’s General Manager, said. “Given the 250,000-plus car searches on our marketplace every day, improving technology to help prospective buyers find nearby vehicles they’ll love based on year, make, model, etc. is a natural progression.”
As one of the most downloaded shopping apps on Google Play, 5miles has grown into an online community of 11 million users nationwide. Every month, the 5miles app facilitates more than $250 million in peer-to-peer transactions. In the car category alone, 5miles has become one of the top 10 auto platforms by listing volume, and routinely ranks as a top car-buying app.
5miles is the first app of its kind to offer buyers and sellers a dynamic, local marketplace with access to both second-hand goods and services, housing, and jobs: real items from real people in real time—all within five miles. From cars, trucks, and motorcycles, to auto body and glass, installation and repair, and washing and detailing on the service side, 5miles is delivering an unparalleled shopping and aftermarket service experience.
