Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW ORLEANS - Jan 27, 2017 - Dealer Simplified, a provider of auto auctioning systems for car dealers, announced today the company has posted its 20,000th vehicle to the Auction Simplified system. Co-Founder Dave Kaiser made the announcement.
Founded in Western New York in 2014, Auction Simplified is a process driven company that leverages mobile technology to enable dealers to perform real-time auctions directly from their dealership.
“In the past, dealers sold cars at big box auctions paying sellers fees as high a $700. But with wholesale buyers now using the Internet to compare wholesale prices, this traditional approach has become an ineffective and expensive way to sell cars,” said Phil Gates, Dealer Simplified’s co-founder and CFO. “The Auction Simplified Bid Sale Tool helps dealers market their trade-ins with no seller’s fees and tiny buyer’s fees thereby dramatically increasing wholesale profitability.”
“Even though we are a software company, we understand that more than 73% of wholesale bidders want to buy in person. Our specialty auction approach accommodates both the old school ‘flip phone’ bidder along with the early adaptors of online vehicle acquisition,” said Kevin Leigh, Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist. “By simplifying the process for buyers, no matter what their skill level, our auctions are succeeding at unprecedented levels. Many are achieving 90%+ sell rate with profits exceeding CarMax levels. Now even the smallest franchise dealer can ‘Be the auction’ which is a game changer for wholesale profitability. Let’s face it: wholesale profitability improves market share. If you can put more in a trade, you can sell more cars than the competition.”
The company has grown rapidly in the North East and is a big hit with buyers who have struggled with increasing buyer’s fees. The company has been expanding strategically with locations in NY, CT, PA, IL, MI, OK, UT and CA.
