Driverbase Introduces Dealership Inventory Listings Beta at Digital Dealer

Open a free Dealer Console account, claim your store(s), list your inventory, get ADF lead and dealer website referrals and monitor your audience with full transparency

Dealers attending the Digital Dealer Conference are invited to join the Driverbase Dealership Beta and automate the car search experience for car buyers.

Driverbase has developed a patent pending personalized vehicle recommendation system for drivers and today’s launch begins the integration of dealership vehicle listings with Driverbase vehicle class recommendations.

The first 250 dealerships to signup for the Dealer Console Beta at Digital Dealer are eligible for free inventory listings on Driverbase throughout 2019. Driverbase is looking for innovative dealer partners to help us improve our marketplace product.

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.

Why list inventory on Driverbase?

Driverbase is a free service that connects driver data, driving routes, and current vehicles to provide personalized vehicle recommendations in real time. Driverbase helps drivers discover the car that will maximize their ownership experience based on their unique situation.

  1. Mobile & SEO Optimized Marketplace inventory listings
  2. Mobile & SEO Optimized Dealer Profile listing in Dealer Locator
  3. Provide consumers with personalized vehicle recommendations based on their unique situation to help reduce the current (and expensive) 900+ touchpoints per car search
  4. Focus on optimal vehicle not “lowest price”
  5. Prominent dealer website deep links on VDP to encourage consumers to book direct with your dealership vs. submitting ADF leads on Driverbase
  6. Inventory included in vehicle recommendation engine that matches drivers w/ their optimal vehicle
  7. Full transparency (you can download your raw weblog file including sessions from all Profile / VDP / VLP visits).  One example use case is that you could import this audience data into your Google 360 Marketing Attribution system for independent analysis
  8. We respect dealerships and will never undermine your credibility in our consumer advertising.  Our goal is to be the most customer friendly marketplace available for both drivers and dealerships
  9. Free Dealer Beta Listings. As a member of the dealer beta you can list all your stores inventory for free throughout 2019
  10. Support new ventures working to fill the innovation void in automotive

Year 1 @ Driverbase

This week we are celebrating our one year anniversary at Driverbase. I am excited to report on the progress we have made and share more information about our plans for the future.

Driverbase achieved substantial milestones over the last 12 months. In our first year of operation we:

Team
Established an exceptional team of technical founders and are actively recruiting. Follow our current openings.

Systems & Infrastructure
Setup our infrastructure and a test driven development approach.

Vehicle Graph
Independently compiled a global mapping of all cars, suvs, light duty trucks and motorcycles. Over 500K+ unique vehicles are represented.

Manage your Garage
Built an application that allows drivers to see all their car information in one place and plan for their next purchase. Drivers can create a profile, add driving routes and current vehicles to unlock personalized vehicle recommendations.

Prediction Engine
Launched a personalized AI powered vehicle recommendation system that helps drivers own the right car at the right time. This system calculates the optimal vehicle for each driver based on their unique situation. It provides insights regarding which car to buy, where to buy, how to buy and when to buy.

Intellectual Property
Drafted and filed a utility patent for our Personalized Vehicle Recommendation System.

Driver Beta
Completed a driver beta program to get product feedback and make progress on the cold start challenge. Built an initial community of drivers.

Marketplace
Built an automotive marketplace for buyers and sellers in the United States to buy and sell new, certified, and used cars, trucks, suvs and motorcycles. Drivers can track vehicles of interest, save searches, receive price change and availability alerts, and connect with driver-centric dealerships in their local area. The marketplace leverages a drivers profile to make it easier to compare vehicles from multiple brands and dealerships. It has also been integrated with the Prediction Engine so that vehicle recommendations are matched to specific inventory ranked based on each drivers unique profile.

Dealer Console
Launched Dealer Console so dealers can create a free public profile and list new and used cars for sale on the marketplace. Vehicle inquiries and sales appointments are sent in ADF format to the dealerships CRM or as website referrals deep linked to the appropriate dealer website url.

Dealer Beta
Opened a dealer beta program to allow dealers to list their dealership and inventory on the marketplace.

Integrations
Implemented support for integration with most major automotive technology partners.

Industry Events
Covered the New York Auto Show as a member of the press to conduct new model research. Represented Driverbase at NADA, JD Power Automotive Summit, Digital Dealer, and Driving Sales to establish key partnerships.

Why Driverbase Matters
I have been in the automotive technology field since 2005 and worked with the majority of OEMs, dealerships, automotive marketplaces and web providers.  This means I have been involved with most of the online consumer behavior in auto.  I believe there is an incredible amount of waste and the car shopping process is still time consuming and painful despite massive investments in digital marketing. 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.

Customer Focus
We aspire to be the world’s most customer-centric automotive technology company and are excited about the challenges and opportunities ahead. Thank you to each driver, dealership and oem for the opportunity to work for you.

Thanks to our team for the valiant progress.

Regards,

Dan Jackson
CEO Driverbase Inc.
