Dealerslink is delivering solutions to reduce independent dealers’ pain points and help them thrive in any environment.

With Dealerslink Competition View and True Market Analytics, it’s easy to see how competing cars in your market are priced and how quickly they’ll turn.
Competition View compares real-time prices of exact trim and equipment vehicles currently available in your retail market. By scanning every dealership website daily and heat maps instantly display used-car retail pricing data. See how other dealers are pricing similar vehicles regionally or nationwide.
The ability to learn about cars, look through photos, watch videos, and read reviews from your computer or mobile device isn’t exactly new. Many car buyers, even if they make their final decision and purchase in person on a car lot, will use digital tools at some point during the process to gather information, compare vehicles, or take a virtual tour or test drive.
Top independent dealers leverage advanced merchandising tools from Dealerslink to drive more traffic and advertising ROI from their website and third-party sites.

We were using vAuto, getting frustrated with the same things being said over and over – it seemed like it was a race to the bottom. On top of that, fees were continuously rising.
If you are considering Dealerslink vs. what you’re currently using, or what else is on the market – take a look at the product, the layout, the similarities – and then look at the price of the product. It’s a no-brainer after you do that. Dealerslink is the way to go.
It’s very easy to use, works just as well as vAuto, and there are newer features – and it saved us money overall. It’s a seamless transition from vAuto to Dealerslink.
