NAPLES, Fla., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Car Lister, the web application that lets sellers list and buyers shop for new and pre-owned cars from any smartphone, tablet or desktop, was named 'Most Innovative Product' at the 20th Annual Digital Dealer Conference & Expo Tech Tank in Orlando for its new Dealer Wholesale platform, which will allow for dealerships to connect, buy, sell and trade with each other online without the traditional wholesale middleman. The award comes on the heels of the company's national expansion to more than 35 states and 327 automotive dealerships, making it the largest and most connected digital car-buying platform on the market.
"This award means a great deal to Car Lister because it comes from the very people that have been looking for a better way to connect with customers and build a trusted dealer network," said Bryan Harmon, Founder and CEO, DreamWare, Inc., the parent company and developer of Car Lister. "To be voted the most innovative product by automotive dealers and industry executives further supports our beliefs that the automotive industry is finally ready to shake up the way it has done business over the last 30 years."
While at DD20, Car Lister also announced the launch of a fully transactional e-commerce platform to connect automotive dealers and individual sellers across the country. The Bring Your Best Offer (BYBO) program allows dealers to easily obtain new inventory by hand-selecting vehicles, making offers, viewing inspection reports, and scheduling shipping all from one platform. Individual sellers are given, for the first time, a direct pipeline to a dealer network looking to boost inventory.
Car Lister also announced the launch of the biggest program to hit the automotive industry – the Epic Giveaway – to give away nearly $500,000 in car and repair vouchers, tires, oil changes and more.
Every month in 2016, Car Lister is giving away a $25,000 voucher for winners to purchase a car of their choice from any participating Car Lister dealership, as well as $2500 in service repair vouchers.
