Driverbase launches mobile apps to help you decide which car to buy on iPhone and Android

Driverbase Car Search Mobile App Neural Network

Tools offer car buyers ability to leverage machine learning to automatically rank all makes and models and buy a car with fewer dealership visits

Great news for iPhone, iPad and Android users who search for cars and manage their current vehicles with Driverbase. There is now a new way to decide which car to buy on your mobile device. Driverbase already worked with mobile web browsers but the new apps give more control and quicker access to vehicle recommendations and inventory search. Amid the stay-at-home efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus, the importance of online vehicle shopping has continued to increase and in many states is now the only way to purchase a car.

The new apps allow drivers to set their unique preferences, rate a current vehicle and automatically search all vehicles to find their perfect match. Inventory has been aggregated to make it easier for drivers to search multiple dealerships from one place and then transact directly to get a price estimate, schedule a test drive and complete their purchase.

Personalized and automated car search helps drivers save time and make better decisions

Most car shoppers are undecided on which car to buy at the start of their search. It is inefficient and nearly impossible for shoppers to fully research every vehicle on the market with constant model lineup changes and evolving propulsion types. Today’s car search involves 900+ online touch points on traditional marketplaces and dealership websites as drivers struggle to make an informed decision. Driverbase lets customers harness the power of machine learning to automatically rank all makes and models based on their unique situation.

Shop new, certified and used cars from multiple dealerships in one place

Drivers can search vehicle listings that cover all makes and models in most major markets. Driverbase continues to increase listing coverage on a daily basis by partnering with customer focused dealerships. Many dealerships also seek a new marketplace experience due to the recent price gouging from traditional marketplace and dealer website providers. Driverbase is focused on delivering a better car search process for both drivers and dealerships while causing deflation to wasteful advertising spend that is ultimately passed through to the car buyer.

Trust matters

Driverbase protects consumer privacy during the car search process. The apps can be used with or without creating an account. If an account is created more features are available however Driverbase will not share information with dealerships unless the shopper makes a request on a specific vehicle. Some traditional marketplaces have created trust gaps when they automatically share driver information to dealerships without permission.

Here’s how drivers describe the new mobile application:

Quick, easy, helpful! This was actually accurate and it only took 1 minute. I tried it a few times answering the questions differently and I got appropriate recommendations. I am currently looking to test drive vehicles and looking for a car with more space for our growing family so this quiz and car search will come in handy.

Deborah, Naperville Illinois

Helped me zone in on what works best for my situation. This app helped me figure out which car would work best for me.

Mike, Stamford Connecticut

Very accurate for some reason…

Brayden, Nashville Tennessee

They know me almost too well

Nicholas, Santa Monica California

Toyota 86. Funny, i would actually consider owning one…

Lance, Annapolis Maryland

The best app out there; check it out

Peter, Somerville Massachusetts

Pretty accurate. Mine came up S6 and I have always said if I had only 1 car it would be that. Try it. It’s cool.

Martin, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

It nailed me to a T.

Everett, Baltimore Maryland

All the recommendations were pretty much spot on from the app.

Darrell, Washington DC

Driverbase waives 100% of dealer listing fees indefinitely and doubles monthly advertising investment in response to COVID-19

Driverbase Partners:

We have been building our vehicle recommender and marketplace since June 2018. In 2019 we operated a dealership beta offering free listings and referrals in exchange for product feedback. On December 23rd 2019 we extended the free beta program to May 1st 2020 to allow more audience generation before transitioning to commercial release.

This week we reached out to all our customers and based on their feedback regarding business disruptions we have decided to waive 100% of listing fees indefinitely.

No action is needed as we have disabled billing for all customers that was originally planned for May 1st 2020. We will also continue paying third party inventory data fees on behalf of our customers.

We will monitor the disruption to dealership operations due to the Coronavirus and extend our free listings program to support our customers with zero cost advertising and referrals.

In addition, Driverbase will double our monthly advertising investment to accelerate audience growth.

We are excited to put our recommender based campaigns to work and allow dealers to benefit from lower user acquisition costs while offering drivers a more efficient car search experience. We expect month over month traffic increases to continue despite the reduction in overall car search volumes.

We will be in communication with our dealer advisor council in the months ahead and will not resume charges until we see conditions improve.

As an early stage venture thank you for your continued support.
