Dealer Website Inventory Listings

Carsina now provides inventory listing services for dealerships with the release of v1.7. This is a very important feature because it directly relates to increased revenue for the dealers. When it comes right down to it, the biggest benefit of a dealer software company is when a customer comes through a service they provide. Website inventory listings are crucial to the car dealerships at this day and age. Everybody searches for their next car online - not only in car sales sites like autotrader.com and cars.com but also in search engines like Google and Yahoo and social media sites like Facebook and My Space. Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Optimization are incredible arsenals that are free or low cost and frequently they are not utilized by many dealerships enough. Carsinia inventory listings simplifies these strategies and provides a more professional look in the online world.

The inventory listings are essentially two screens: listing and detail pages. From the backend, users can upload images and update the marketing price for vehicles as well as comments, address, email and whether it's certified or not. When a vehicle is set as ready to market (and not sold yet), it will be displayed in the website. The front-end website code needs to be added in the dealer website. This is a thin layer of programs that retrieve the data in the backend from Carsinia through a technology called web services. It is provided as open source and you can modify it in a lot of different ways. The default library comes pretty much search engine optimized but you can change and add your own keywords and phrases. The detail screen includes a very aesthetic slide show that can be zoomed in. You can also add any of these contact us options to be used by your website visitors: confirm availability, value my trade, get quote, make offer and schedule test drive. A little estimated payment calculator is available as well. If you do a VIN analysis for a vehicle (or enter the specifications manually with copy and paste), window sticker information (technical specifications and equipment information) can be displayed in your website as well. One key distinction in Carsinia inventory service is that it does not use frames. This is an extremely important feature as it allows the vehicle information to be associated with your website when indexed by search engines. Please contact us for more information.
