Homenet customers get access to free inventory listings and referrals on Driverbase throughout 2019.
Driverbase is a vehicle marketplace that provides drivers with personalized vehicle recommendations and connects them to local dealership inventory. Dealers using Homenet are invited to join the Driverbase Dealership Beta and automate the car search experience for car buyers.
“Homenet integration was one of the features most commonly requested by our beta dealer partners. It has been a pleasure working with the Homenet team to build support for inventory syndication. As part of this integration, Homenet includes dealer website vehicle details page urls which allows us to deep link from Driverbase listings directly to the dealer website vehicle details. This improves the car search experience by allowing shoppers to discover vehicles of interest on the marketplace and then transact directly through the dealership website.” – Dan Jackson CEO, Driverbase Inc.
Driverbase has developed a patent pending personalized vehicle recommendation system for drivers and today’s announcement accelerates the integration of dealership vehicle listings with Driverbase vehicle class recommendations.
The car search experience is getting more difficult
Car-buying journeys now include “900 digital touch-points in a 3 month period with 71% on mobile” according to a recent Google study. Drivers are owning vehicles for longer and prices are increasing so choosing the optimal vehicle is even more important. The vehicle market has become more complex and fragmented with model lineup changes, new propulsion types, and autonomous driving technologies.
