    What companies in our industry either offer or are working towards a full Digital Retail / Online Vehicle Purchase solution or service for dealerships (and their website) that can handle the full transaction from beginning to end?

    This thread will list and link to all the companies in our industry that offer either a COMPLETE Buy Online solution or have most of the functionality and are working towards a complete Buy Online solution.

    List of current companies providing a Digital Retail solution for car dealerships so far:

    Know of Digital Retailing service provider that's not listed here? Please add to the list in the comments and I'll have it added to the full list above.


    Update 8/7/2016 - Removed GM's Shop-Click-Drive as I clean up this list a bit to include only 3rd Party Platforms that are working towards true BUY ONLINE from beginning to end.

    Update 7/31/2018 - Added Roadster to the list.

    Update 9/21/2018 DriveItNow is now truPayments

    Jasen,
    Do you mean a broker that'll buy on behalf of the buyer, or, a software solution?

    Software solution, something they can do on their site, have a buy it now button that will link them to do everything they need to do to purchase

    Make My Deal: No different than a "Make us an offer" CTA
    DDC Digital Retailing: A bunch of traditional forms combined into one big widget that doesn't really do a whole lot. Ever watch Power Rangers where the 5 things would combine into a mega something that moved around all clunky-like?

    If you find something that works well please let us know.
