Philadelphia-Based Startup, MyDealerOnline®, Raised $1.6 Million to Allow Car Dealers to Sell Cars Before They Buy Them
Trevose, PA (August 24, 2015) – MyDealerOnline® is a wholesale to retail digital product that allows car dealerships to broker wholesale auto auction inventory straight from their own websites. MyDealerOnline® partners with auction houses, takes their available inventory feed and places it directly onto the car dealer’s website. Developed by Alteso®, a company that prides itself on accelerating the auto remarketing industry, MyDealerOnline® removes the guessing game from the wholesale car buying experience and enables dealers to “Sell Before You Buy.”
After three rounds of funding, MyDealerOnline® has received 1.6 million investment dollars; 1.1M in October of 2013, 200K in December of 2014 and 300K in August of 2015. These investments have allowed MyDealerOnline® to develop the technology, submit a patent, pursue and establish auction inventory partners and begin marketing to auto dealers around the globe. “It starts with the inventory.”, stated Cheryl Munce, Chief Executive Consultant at Alteso®. According to Munce, the beauty of such a product is that, “It essentially puts the retail transaction ahead of the wholesale transaction.” She went on to say that, “Consumers can now shop a dealer’s website and browse ‘virtual’ inventory to look for the car of their dreams. Of course the wholesale price is NOT displayed to the consumer so the dealer can protect their profit margins and handle the acquisition and sale directly to their customer.”
MyDealerOnline® is an invisible technology that seamlessly integrates off-site auction inventory within a dealership website, thereby keeping shopping consumers engaged on the dealer’s website. The dealer can sell more cars, maximize their digital marketing expense by attracting and retaining more customers and minimize inventory acquisition risk. With plans to obtain a greater amount of inventory vehicles and cater to a broader client base of car dealers, MyDealerOnline® aims for a promising and prosperous future. MyDealerOnline’s® vision is to revolutionize the way auto remarketers and car dealers do business by giving every dealer a “virtual” showroom of FREE inventory.
