Customer

Problem

The client turned to Softeq to create a cross-platform mobile application providing a convenient vehicle selection tool for the buyer side, and integrate it with a number of 3rd-party services on the back-end level.

Solution

The Xamarin-driven app targets potential vehicle buyers and is designed to provide end-to-end purchasing experience — from car selection to finalizing the purchase.

The app allows the buyer to:

  • Choose a new or a used car
  • Assess trade-in options for an existing car
  • Check for rebates and calculate the final price
  • Check the available payment options
  • Scan the VIN code or driver license
  • Check the insurance options
  • Submit a purchase request
  • Communicate with Sales Managers
  • Generate a worksheet with all the deal pertinent details
  • Finalize the purchase order

The app communicates with the web back end, which has been functionally upgraded to work as a CRM tool enabling sales managers to process buyer requests more efficiently. The web system is integrated with a number of 3rd-party solutions, including AIS Rebates, DealerSocket dealer management system, among others.

Since many of the 3rd party systems did not meet the customer’s expectations to the required extent, the team had to do major solution customization.

Results

The final solution is set to significantly facilitate the car selection process for buyers while eliminating the stress associated with negotiating the deals and handling the necessary paperwork. At the same time the solution will also help dealers close the deals faster thanks to the automated workflows and immediate availability of all the relevant critical information.
