The Next Gen Car Selling Platform

The collaboration between Inforox and Sell Your Car 2 Jack resulted in the successful development of The Next Gen Car Selling Platform.

Project Overview

Sell Your Car 2 Jack is a family-run, nationwide innovative online marketplace that seeks to enhance its services by developing a Next Gen Car Selling Platform. Inforox, a leading web development company in Birmingham, partnered with SYC2J to revolutionise the management of leads and appointments in car sales, ultimately streamlining the selling process.

Objective

The goal of the SYC2J project was to create a comprehensive platform for efficiently managing leads and appointments in car sales. This involved optimising the entire process from lead generation to finalising car deals, including the creation of purchase invoices for cars sold and sale invoices for trade transactions.

How We Helped

Inforox collaborated closely with Sell Your Car 2 Jack to develop a customised Next Gen Car Selling Platform tailored to their specific requirements. Leveraging cutting-edge technologies and industry best practices, our team created a robust platform that streamlined lead management, appointment scheduling, and invoice generation processes. We delivered a solution that exceeded their expectations by comprehending SYC2J’s unique needs.

Key Features

Full Text Search

The Full Text Search feature enhances the platform’s usability by providing users with comprehensive search functionality. With this feature, users can perform searches across all available text data within the platform, including listings, descriptions, and user-generated content. This capability enables users to quickly locate specific information or listings based on their search criteria, significantly reducing the time and effort required to find relevant content.

Calendar Integration

Calendar integration entails seamlessly connecting the platform with users’ calendars for efficient appointment scheduling and management. This feature allows users, including both buyers and sellers, to schedule appointments directly through the platform. The platform’s integration eliminates the need for users to manually transfer appointment details between systems, thereby reducing the risk of scheduling conflicts and ensuring prompt recording and management of appointments.

Online Appointment Booking

The online appointment booking feature revolutionises the way users schedule meetings between buyers and sellers. By providing a user-friendly interface, the platform allows users to conveniently book appointments at their preferred date and time, eliminating the need for time-consuming phone calls or emails to coordinate schedules. Users can access the platform anytime, anywhere, using their desktop, laptop, or mobile device, making it incredibly convenient for busy individuals.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

SYC2J tracks KPIs for both car buyers and branches. The Car Buyer KPI displays the number of leads assigned, appointments made, status of appointments marked as bought, and other relevant information. For Branches KPI, it tracks the number of leads created per branch, appointments created by staff members, appointments booked by customers, and other related metrics to assess branch performance.

Instant Online Valuation

Instant Online Valuation is an integrated tool within the platform that enables accurate vehicle valuation. This feature allows users to input relevant information about a vehicle, such as its make, model, year, mileage, condition, and any additional features, to generate a comprehensive appraisal report. The Instant Online Valuation tool leverages algorithms and market data to provide users with an estimated value for the vehicle based on current market trends and conditions.

Staff Rota Management

Staff Rota Management is a comprehensive system within the platform that ensures optimal resource allocation and scheduling of staff members involved in car sales operations. This feature allows administrators or managers to create and manage staff rotas, assigning roles and shifts based on employee availability, skill sets, and workload requirements. Staff members can access their schedules through the platform, view upcoming shifts, request time off, and communicate with colleagues regarding schedule changes or substitutions.

Trader Mobile App

The Trader Mobile App is a dedicated mobile application that empowers traders (car dealerships, sales representatives, etc.) with on-the-go access to the platform’s features. We designed this app to give traders convenient access to essential functionalities like inventory management, lead response, appointment scheduling, and car appraisals. By offering a mobile app, traders can efficiently perform their tasks from anywhere, enabling them to stay connected and responsive while out in the field, ultimately enhancing productivity and customer service.

Software & Technologies Used

We used a combination of front-end and back-end technologies to develop the SYC2J system. This included Vue.js for the front-end development, Laravel for the server-side scripting, and MySQL for the database management.

Result

The collaboration between Inforox and Sell Your Car 2 Jack resulted in the successful development The Next Gen Car Selling Platform to streamline their operations and enhance the car selling experience for both customers and traders. With optimised lead management, appointment scheduling, and invoicing processes, SYC2J witnessed increased efficiency and improved customer satisfaction. The intuitive user interface and advanced features of the platform set a new standard for online car sales, positioning SYC2J as a leader in the automotive marketplace.
