How will CarDealster help me as a salesperson or broker?
The CarDealster app will help car salepeople, brokers and small dealerships stay in contact with past iPhone contacts, drive post-sale Google reviews, and gain quick vehicle information from a VIN scan.
Staying in touch with past customers builds long-term relationships, and makes these buyers more likely to return to purchase another vehicle, or event to refer their friends and family. Regular contact with past customers also allows salespeople to inform them about new models, special promotions, and financing options.
How does CarDealster help dealerships?
The app helps dealers drive more one-on-one Google reviews, and helps create and attract more powerful salespeople, who are more productive through staying in touch with their phone contacts.
Positive Google reviews help a dealership's local search engine optimization (SEO). This means their website will rank higher in search engine results, making it more visible to potential customers. A high Google review ranking will help establish a dealership's reputation as a trustworthy and reliable business, which attracts more customers.
How can CarDealster help me drive Google reviews?
While viewing the details on a contact record, simply click the button for Copy Review Request. Once the user copies this review text to the clipboard, they can pasted into a text message or email.

Google reviews can help a dealership's website appear higher in search engine results, making it more visible to potential customers. Positive reviews can help establish a dealership's reputation as a trustworthy and reliable business, which can attract more customers. Google reviews that mention a salesperson's name can provide valuable feedback on a dealership's sales process, customer service, and overall customer experience.

When will CarDealster be offered on Android?
There are no current timetable for this offering. Like many smartphone apps, we decided to launch CarDealster first on iOS as the development process is generally considered to be more streamlined than for Android, which means that it's easier to ensure that the app will work correctly on all devices.

Can I export or backup my data?

What are vehicle recalls?
A vehicle recall is a notice issued by a car manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when a particular vehicle or item of vehicle equipment is found to have a safety-related defect or does not comply with federal safety standards.
Recalls can be issued for a wide range of issues, including problems with the engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, airbags, fuel system, electrical system, and more. Some recalls may also be issued for non-mechanical issues, such as problems with the seat belts or child safety seats.
When a recall is issued, the car manufacturer is required to notify all registered owners of the affected vehicles and provide instructions for getting the defect or non-compliance corrected free of charge.
Why are vehicle recalls important?
Recalls are issued to address safety issues that have the potential to cause harm to the vehicle's occupants or other individuals. By having these issues fixed, consumers can help to ensure their own safety and the safety of their passengers.
Also, if a recall has been issued for a vehicle, the repair will typically be performed at no cost to the consumer. This means that by having the recall repair performed, consumers can save money on potential repairs for the issue.
Finally, if a consumer's vehicle has an outstanding recall, it may affect the vehicle's resale value or ability to pass a safety inspection. By ensuring that all recalls have been addressed, consumers can help to maintain the value of their vehicle.
How is the CarDealster app better than other tracking methods?
The CarDealster app provides a centralized database for all customer information, making it easy for salespeople to access and update customer details on the go. The app also provides updated NHTSA recall data on every vehicle, as well as the ability to send pre-programmed Google review requests. Overall the app offers a more efficient and streamlined way for car salespeople to track their customers, making it a preferable option over spreadsheets, iPhone contacts, or other methods.
