Motors.co.uk has launched a mobile-first version of its AutoEdit platform to cater specifically for users of Apple’s iphones and ipads.
AutoEdit GO is now available to download from the Apple App Store and has been built to enable dealers to manage stock from their iOS devices following a strong initial uptake of AutoEdit GO from car dealers who use the Apple devices.
Functionality has been added to recognise a car licence plate from a photograph and automatically check the vehicle’s history when it is added to a dealer’s listings.
The free upgrade for current Motors.co.uk AutoEdit customers has been designed to save dealers time so they can quickly upload both photographs and key vehicle information either on their forecourt or in the office.
Phill Jones, managing director of Motors.co.uk, said: “Our day-to-day conversations with dealers reveal how important the smartphone has becoming to running their business.
“While we have had a brilliant response from dealers who use AutoEdit GO via a mobile browser, we felt the next natural step was to build its own app.
“This new platform allows dealers to easily manage their stock from any location and any device. This investment is a further sign of our passion to deliver smart tools that will help dealers.”
