CD Auction Group has launched its used car stocking app as it looks to back-up predictions that the number of vehicles sold off-site will soar to 50% in 2020 following.
The Corby-based remarketing specialist has seen the numbers of dealers accessing its digital online-only sales from mobile devices double in the last 12 months to now account for 35% of all bids.
Now its new app provides additional functionality that can't be delivered through a browser, with users able to use a 'buy it now' function to purchase a vehicle as soon as it is added to the live database.
The ‘CD Buyer’ app gives dealers access to an extensive range of cars and commercial vehicles sourced from fleets, daily rental and leasing companies across the UK.
Andy Brown, managing director at CD Auction Group, said: "Increasingly dealers want to be able to make stocking decisions on the move.
“Our new app allows buyers to purchase a vehicle wherever and whenever they want.”
Brown said that the app’s launch marked the start of an “accelerated digital development programme” that will make CD Auction the easiest company to do business with in the UK.
Users of the app can search by location and can choose to receive alerts on cars they've bid on, before the end of the sale.
A buying and bid history can be viewed at any time to provide valuable management information.
Just last week CD Auction Group said that it expects its off-site remarketing services to handle half of all the vehicles it sells in 2020, reducing the need for vehicle movements.
The company said at the time that it was able to auction vehicles from a collection hub or de-fleet facility, removing the need to move the vehicles to an auction centre.
