vAuto Webinar: The New Way to Stock, How Much to Pay, and Where to Find the Greatest Used Cars
On Tuesday, vAuto presented a webinar covering:
The single largest challenge in today’s used car market is, unequivocally, sourcing inventory. More than ever, dealers need increasingly powerful and efficient ways to know what cars are best to stock and what to pay for them. Soon, the old methods for sourcing used inventory won’t just be inefficient — they’ll be ineffective. The current market conditions are not a passing phase. We are in a NEW NORMAL that begs for a new answer. Dale Pollak, vAuto’s founder, will demonstrate new approaches and techniques for stocking and sales of used vehicles using newly created tools and technologies.
