Glass’s has launched an app for its spot pricing tool GlassNet Radar.
The app is available on any iOS device (iPad, iPhone and iTouch) and access is free for those with a Glass's subscription.
The tool helps dealers understand what is going on in the market in any given day, what vehicles are selling for and get asking prices right first time.
It allows dealers to compare their own vehicle’s asking prices against their competitors, both locally and nationally, even down to the detail of how long the car has been on the market and how many price changes it’s had
Vik Barodia, director of product management and marketing at Glass’s, said: “Radar offers an accurate real-time view of what’s going on in the market in seconds - meaning traders can spend less time trawling classified websites and more time making intelligent business decisions.”
Since Glass’s launched Radar in January 2012, more than 2,000 dealers have signed up.
Spot pricing has now been well accepted within the trade, and many businesses around the country are pricing and purchasing stock using GlassNet Radar spot prices.
Barodia continued: “Alongside dramatic growth in iOS sales and a ten-fold increase in Glass’s customers going digital, the launch of the Radar App is the next logical step.
“Feedback from customers has suggested that a mobile version of Radar would be beneficial to them - and this App means they no longer have to go through GlassNet first - they can access spot pricing at the touch of a button.”
