Next time you go to a car dealership, you may see the salesmen typing on their iPhones. Don't worry, they aren't goofing off, they could very well be speeding up your purchasing process. AutoRevo announced today the release of an iPhone app, AutoRevo Mobile. The app supposedly allows car dealers to keep up with their inventory via the iPhone.
With the app, dealers can decode a VIN from a photo of a VIN barcode, update prices, edit vehicle information, and shoot and upload photos. They can also run CARFAX Vehicle History Reports and manage leads. AutoRevo Mobile makes it possible for car dealership employees to manage inventory anywhere, at any time.
In a press release, Chad Polk, the CEO of AutoRevo, said he thinks the app will change the way the entire car industry works, "We had several dealers buy out their existing contract and upgrade to the iPhone in order to be an early adopter of AutoRevo Mobile. That tells me we have a game changing product that will move the industry forward. You can literally have a car advertised on your site before the ink dries on the bank draft."
