Cincinnatti, OH – Dealer Specialties, a division of Dominion Enterprises and the nation’s leading provider of data and photo collection, inventory management and data distribution services, today announced it has expanded its partnership agreement with ListedLocal.com to provide the nationwide consumer lead generation site with automobile dealer vehicle listings. Under the exclusive agreement, ListedLocal.com will display inventory for all Dealer Specialties’ customers and the site will process multiple daily inventory updates to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information possible. Dealer Specialties’ customers are automatically included in this new distribution channel at no incremental fee to the dealer.
“Our exclusive partnership with ListedLocal.com reflects Dealer Specialties ongoing commitment to ensure our clients’ inventory is viewed by the broadest possible audience of in-market consumers,” said Glen Garvin, general manager of Dealer Specialties. “By continuing to increase our distribution network, we’re giving dealers more opportunities to generate free leads and get their vehicles sold.”
Dealer Specialties has the largest online vehicle distribution channel in the industry, with more than 1,600 partners including GetAuto.com, Cars.com, eBay Motors, Overstock.com, Google Base, AutoTrader.com, The Cobalt Group, and Manheim.
“We have been working with Dealer Specialties for three years now, and when we decided it was time to expand our vehicle section nationwide we called on the leader. Dealer Specialties offers a great solution for dealerships and ListedLocal.com,” says Jeff Hazuga, partner at ListedLocal.com.
Detailed vehicle listings will include an unlimited number of photos, VeVos (vehicle videos), and more. Updates to the ListedLocal.com site will be automated through Dealer Specialties’ Inventory Manager (IVM) inventory marketing and management solution.
IVM is an Internet-based application that provides dealers with a comprehensive assortment of tools to effectively manage, market and distribute their vehicle inventory online. It allows dealers to add, update and remove inventory at any time, and vehicle listing sites such as ListedLocal.com are automatically updated when any inventory changes are made from this one stop inventory update location.
