Ridgeland, MS – June 2, 2010 – UCMLink is launching the first and only website – UCMLink.com – that allows Used Car Managers and dealers to find, list, trade, request, and communicate about inventory, all in one place.
“UCMLink.com combines aspects of Facebook, Craigslist, and Autotrader in a unique dealer-to-dealer wholesale environment.” says Robert Benoit, founder of UCMLink, “Managers are able to broadcast their needs, requests, and inventory, instantly through a comprehensive network”.
The goal of UCMLink is to enhance the everyday activities of Used Car Managers by using the network to vastly increase audience size. “With a few clicks of a mouse, UCMLink.com can almost instantly give managers the exposure that would otherwise take weeks to establish by phone”, says Benoit.
How UCMLink.com Works
When a member registers with UCMLink.com, they first set “preferences” for what they want to be informed about (i.e. make & distance), then, how they want to be informed (email, text, or both). After that, members can broadcast vehicles that they already have in inventory and want to sell, request vehicles they need, request bids on vehicles they are trying to trade for, and view vehicles being offered by other dealers. A host of tools are also provided to keep track of bids, appraisals, and contacts.
UCMLink.com Site Features
UCMLink.com is not a retail site. Access is only available to automobile dealers and wholesalers throughout the United States. Dealers have to register in order to view or post vehicles. An added feature, however, is a retail “view” that dealers can switch to if they have a customer in front of them and want to show the vehicle, but not details like wholesale pricing, location, or competitor contact information.
UCMLink.com is not a third party, or bidding site. Members are simply sent an email and/or text message with the vehicle description and contact information. That vehicle is then posted to the website for review. When a manager or dealer joins, they are given the privilege of using the database for themselves.
Trust is also taken into account during the development of the network, so, features like an advanced VIN decoder and integration with a dealer’s external accounts such as Carfax, Autocheck, and OVE provide peace of mind when doing business with other members.
As part of the rollout process and to promote maximum membership, UCM Link is being offered free of charge for a limited time. Managers and Dealers can simply click on the register button, provide some simple information and they are ready to go. “Several of our members have sold cars on their very first day.” Says Jeff Richardson, Operations Manager for UCMLink.com.
UCMLink.com is the ultimate networking site exclusively built for Used Car Managers. All the tools you need to communicate, list, locate, and search for inventory critical to your dealership can be found within the UCMLink.com community. To learn more, please visit www.UCMLink.com.
