Edmunds.com, Inc. Key Developments

Edmunds.com, Inc. Launches New Tool for Used Car Trade-Ins and Lead Generations

Edmunds.com rolled out a new product that will give dealers an inside track to connect with the hundreds of thousands of Edmunds users who rely on the site every month to appraise their vehicles. The tool, called Edmunds MyAppraise, gives dealers a convenient new channel to build used car inventory and convert users into new leads. Edmunds MyAppraise works by engaging Edmunds' desktop and mobile users who are already logging on to appraise the True Market Value® price of their vehicles. These users who want to sell their vehicles are given the opportunity to solicit offers from local dealers that are partnered with Edmunds. The tool guides them to enter the vehicle's VIN and to answer a few simple questions about its condition. Users also are prompted to take pictures of their vehicles at specified angles to give dealers the ability to verify the vehicle's condition and provide a more accurate estimate. The responses, photos and customer contact information are delivered to dealers, who can then respond with a specific quote via mobile text messaging. Edmunds MyAppraise combines many of Edmunds' most popular car shopping innovations to deliver a concise product that makes it easier for shoppers to trade their vehicles and for dealers to engage these highly-coveted customers.

CUneXus and Edmunds.com Partner to Transform Car Buying

CUneXus Solutions announced a partnership with Edmunds.com, Inc. The two companies will collaborate to develop a new generation of car shopping and purchasing solutions, to be unveiled this spring. CUneXus' Comprehensive Prescreened Lending (CPL) technology allows banks and credit unions to offer "click to accept" consumer loans to customers where and when they need them-no application necessary. The company's cplXpress lending automation platform delivers personalized offers to customers' phones, computers and tablets, using a combination of the institution's customer information and lending criteria, as well as customer credit history, behavior and location. A shopper entering an auto dealership, for example, might receive a message with a preapproved loan offer for $40,000 that can be accepted on the spot, increasing the buyer's purchasing and negotiating power. When combined with Edmunds Price Promise dealer inventory, the resulting solution will elevate the car buying experience to an entirely new standard, empowering consumers with unmatched tools and transparency.
