Even though smartphone app users typically spend less time then office users, the company reports that they will bid at a 1:2 ratio of the vehicles they look up.

Why such a focused buying cycle?

“We think it is because the wholesalers are actually at the bid sale and even right next to the car they are about to bid on.” says Phil Gates CTO and designer of the Auction Simplified app for iPhone and android. “They are focused on what they want and are past the shopping phase”[/x_text][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section][x_section style=”margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” bg_color=”” style=”margin: 0px auto 0px auto; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_column bg_color=”” type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_counter num_start=”0″ num_end=”79″ num_speed=”1500″ num_prefix=”” num_suffix=”%” num_color=”#dd8500″ text_above=”Smart Phone Shoppers” text_below=”Focus on One Car – edmunds.com” text_color=””][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section][x_section style=”margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; padding: 0px 0px 45px 0px; “][x_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” bg_color=”” style=”margin: 0px auto 0px auto; padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_column bg_color=”” type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]Dealer Simplified analysis also discovered that the data holds true no matter which smart phone the user prefers.

Millennials are more likely to bid by Smartphone

Its not surprising that Millennials are more likely to use their phone, but their also is a growing population of older wholesalers using their smartphone as a tool rather than fearing it.

“We see older buyers on smart phones at bid sales all the time, checking the Carfax and using apps like Autoniq and our listings on Auction Simplified. I suppose it makes sense, the iPhone has been out for 8 years now, even the ole timers have em.” – Guy Barbera at Bob Johnson in Rochester.

Conclusion, post your wholesale cars online so the bidders can bid and buy from their phones.[/x_text][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section]
