Dealership online inventory software

Dealership online inventory

Now days, it’s imperative to have a presence online. Your company’s online presence is viewed by customers as the company itself, in other words, your company will be judged based on how your website looks.
At first, it seems impractical to think that your company is “judged” by appearance but, consider this: the market industry exists exactly for this very purpose, to make your company look good and reliable.

So, why it is important to have your dealership inventory online? Because…

  • …extends your company’s reach to customers which, otherwise, would not know that your company exists.
  • …enhance profit
  • …allows your customers to interact with your company
  • …allows your company to run 24hrs per day (online)
  • …keeps your company competitive and up to date (technology wise)
  • …allows your customers and potential buyers to visualize the vehicle before hand

I could mention a couple of dozens more reasons but, I guess you got the idea, right?

If you are a dealership you know how competitive and expensive the market is. Most of the car dealers in North America rely heavily on systems such as V12 or AutoTrader which imposes a monthly cost for managing the dealership‘s inventory.
They also provide you with a website which, regrettably, is not attractive nor reliable. In sum, you depend on a 3rd party system to run your business, in a lot of cases, entirely.
Now, any good business manager or CEO would agree when I state that, relying your business on 3rd party solution has (at least), a high risk.

It’s understandable why one would comply with such conditions. Budget is one of the most common issues. Also, affordable reliable solution for online inventory is hard to find.

Building jT CarFramework 2 Series

The jT CarFramework project started as a small concept based in a car dealership located in United States. The entire project was placed as open-source, which means, free to download. That was a very important phase because, all tools developed at the time was a result of direct feedback from car dealerships.
The first version was released (0.0.9) as a free open-source project. The current free version (1.6) has 1 million+ downloads and references on websites like CNET (downloads.com) and Softpedia (editor’s selection).

jT CarFramework 2 Series development started a couple of months after version 1.2 was released. Initially, it was meant to also be free. By that time, Intersofts.com was been driven by donations and good will. Unfortunately, donations stopped but, the project survived by the developer’s own financing.
The 2 Series was entirely re-built from ground-up to fit trading and automation tools. 1.x Series was primarily designed to serve small and dealership which owned their own vehicles and had no need to hold other dealership’s inventory.

The entire project took one and half year to complete (beta version) and, another 7 months of testing. Today, 2 Series has achieved it’s prime state. It is a stable and reliable car dealer online inventory used by thousands of companies in 5 continents.
Because there wasn’t competitors on the market by the time 1.x Series was released, it became a hit instantly with more than 1000 downloads on the first month alone.
Another fact which many of our customers point out, we are the ONLY ones which provides a complete online demo which gives you access to the administration account without having to apply for it. Why? – because we are confident that our software is good enough to stand copy-cats by it’s stability.
Also (but not least), we are not sitting back and relaxing. We continue to support our products and, further developing new concepts while holding 100% satisfaction!
