Optimized search on all devices

In 2012 the new mobile website was launched offering a perfect mobile experience by giving the right balance between functionality and user experience. An always accessible search section divided in two layers provides a quick and easy search capability to find the correct occasion (250.000+ occasions).

A bright clear result list gives a perfect overview of all wanted occasions and/or new cars from which the user has direct access to the extensive detail pages where all the relevant information is displayed in a smart way.

 
 

Features

Favorites:
The favorites option will allow the user to favorite a specific car which will than be placed within the favorite section. All cars that are favorite are synced cross platform.

Save Search Service:
The save search service allows users to save a specific search criteria (i.e. Audi A5, 2.0 TDI, Blue etc.) making it more easy to start a search when returning to the app. Next to that users will be informed via a push notification once a new car is added to the app that correspond with the saved search criteria.

In an easy 5 step process users can place their own car on the AutoTrack platform by filling their personal details, car details, and taking/uploading pictures of the specific car. To guarantee AutoTrack’s reliability, quality, transparency and accuracy standards all cars (before a user can create and advertisement) are validated via the license plate and kilometer check that is built in the app, ensuring all cars that are submitted aren’t stolen or have other illegal facts to it.

Car Comparison
The smartphone app is specifically targeted as a full service platform on the go, the tablet app is specifically targeted for more in-depth car research and orientation, providing more visual information and videos, and the option to compare multiple cars with each other, giving users the possibility to make an even better decision once buying a car.

With an montly average of more than 200.000 unique visitors and 1.5 million page views AutoTrack now changed their desktop oriented strategy to a mobile first strategy making the mobile platforms as the number one interaction channel for the customers.
