Better Check the Return Policy, Gannett -- CarLister.co Launches to Deliver the Mobile Car Buying and Selling Experience That Cars.com Doesn't

NAPLES, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- Today, DreamWare launches CarLister.co, the first and only automated listing Web application that lets users list and shop for cars from any smartphone, tablet or desktop browser. The launch comes during the same week Gannett announced that it will buy the remaining 73 percent of Cars.com, which was developed in 1998, for $1.8 Billion. Unlike Cars.com, Car Lister offers the ability to list a car from a mobile phone, generate a window sticker in PDF format, even the opportunity to have direct connection of the parties via FaceTime, all in its standard package.

Car Lister is DreamWare's first stand-alone application. DreamWare's first Web app, World Lister, runs on eBay's platform. DreamWare is advancing into the eCommerce mobile world, featuring accelerated technologies, and over 150 lister.co domains to compete with Alibaba, eBay and Amazon.

Listing and selling a car, or large inventories of cars, using Car Lister is as easy as entering the vehicle's VIN number manually or taking a photo of the VIN and answering a few questions tailored to that vehicle's make, model and included features. Car Lister shortens the listing process keeping it simple, efficient and comprehensive.

A few taps and the listing is almost complete. Users can enhance their listing by capturing and uploading up to 30 images. Up to five personalized or existing YouTube videos can be added to a mobile listing offering visually descriptive depth.

Car Lister will also allow sellers to market their cars directly to dealers to solicit a buyout offer or a trade-in value.

Car Lister, using advanced patent pending technology, automatically generates a title, full description, and includes all vehicle information and options. The user still has the capability to edit all auto-generated text before posting the listing.

The first 8,888 listings on Car Lister will be free to post. As an added benefit for early users, it will also include an accident report -- an additional savings of up to $35. After the first 8,888 listings, Car Lister's "premium package" will be only $14.44. Car Lister includes more features at a lower price than any other premium car listing package, such as 30 images, videos, FaceTime, accident report, and a printable window sticker.

"We think Gannett may regret their investment in cars.com because it is built on 1998 technology that does not incorporate mobile rich features desired by users today," said Bryan Harmon, co-founder and CEO of DreamWare, the developer of Car Lister. "We are very proud of Car Lister and how effective, fast, intuitive and easy it is to use. Even first-time sellers can have a professional listing with little effort. Car Lister delivers mobile functionality and the 'make it easy' world to car sales."

Car Lister includes FaceTime capability to provide an option for the buyer and seller to connect real time. Buyers don't have to travel for hours to simply hear the engine run, and get a feel for the seller's trustworthiness. FaceTime will be beneficial to dealers when buyers call about a vehicle and the dealer can offer alternative cars on the same call.

  • Responsive design for full-featured mobile accessibility
  • Fully automated, patent-pending listing process with unparalleled degree of accuracy
  • No typing required
  • Accident report and fuel efficiency are automatically injected into each listing
  • "My Garage" page shows the user's personal Car Lister activity

  • Ability to save in-progress or future listings in "drafts"

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
