A new Appple iPad app has been launched for dealers who use epyx’s 1link Disposal Network e-commerce platform to acquire used stock.
The existing 1link Disposal Network iPhone app is already used by around 40% of the
e-commerce platform’s dealer customer base.
The iPad version uses the tablet’s screen space to enable easier viewing of vehicle details and adds options to compare shortlisted vehicles on the same screen and to search for similar vehicles.
Richard Sangster, product manager, disposal platforms at epyx, said: “We are seeing a lot of evidence that dealers are becoming more and more comfortable when it comes to using mobile devices to buy and sell used cars and vans.
“The new iPad app has all the features accessible through the standard 1link Disposal Network portal and improves on the iPhone version by providing key features such as the ability to easily compare vehicles dealers have shortlisted on the same screen as well as to search for similar cars and vans.”
The new iPad app – and the existing iPhone app – are available for free download from the Apple App Store.
The 1link Disposal Network is used by fleets and leasing companies to sell stock to used car and van dealers.
