The Buying Platform funnel

Use One Trade-in Process, Not Two, and

Keep Website Conversions High

Previously dealers had to choose between high converting trade-in tools or lengthy, rigid, and cumbersome online and in-store forms to let consumers value their trade-in. The Buying Platform’s unique flow combines both approaches into a single solution, creating both high quantity and high quality leads. Interested to learn how we do it?

Tailored to Your Market and Strategy

Adaptable and Flexible

Other trade-in processes subject your customers to 30 to 100 questions, only to still require a final inspection. Those questions are locked in place, and don’t match your buying strategy, local competition, or market reality. The Buying Platform puts you in the driver’s seat. Choose the questions to ask consumers about their vehicle, while adjusting the additions/deductions based upon their answers to match your strategy.

A Unified Online & In-Store Process Will

Increase Efficiency and Deal Flow

There’s still a disconnect between online and in-store tools to help a customer trade-in their vehicle. Customers who completed an online trade-in form must start all over again when they walk through the door, frustrating them and your sales team. The Buying Platform’s unified approach lets dealers synchronize their online and in-store process, delighting your customers and increasing your transaction speed.

TBP Market Report

A Two-Way Exchange of Information

Earns Trust and Builds Credibility

All other solutions require information from consumers, but share nothing back until they get the price. The shopper has no idea what factors influence that price, nor how it compares to the other vehicles for sale in the market. The Buying Platform shows consumers data points like average days on the market, local supply, popular attributes of their vehicle, and more. This added transparency provides consumers with much needed context for the vehicle’s final valuation, building credibility and trust with the dealer.
