What is the “Auto Mall Application”?
Mall Application is the “back end” that holds, administers, and
presents all of the data in the client’s inventory. The client's web site uses
this application to present the data over the Internet. This allows the website
to change dynamically with the client’s inventory.
Will this application work with other dealerships besides just automotive?
Yes! We have developed this application to work equally well with RVs,
boats, motorcycles, or anything with a VIN. number to identify the vehicle.

Why should I put my inventory on the Internet when my clients are local?
Many people start their search for a car at home by newspaper. If they
find the car they want, that’s where they’ll stop their search. Make it just as
easy to view your inventory as it is to look in the paper.
Pull in potential clients from neighboring towns. Put ads in nearby
newspapers for one of your cars and add your website address for them
to view the car. When they come to your site they will not only see
one car they are looking for, but your entire inventory. One ad can
advertise all your cars. If they find the car they want, people
will drive to nearby towns that they may have never considered going to
before to look for a car.
People will travel from other states if you have the precise car they're
