National Powersport Auctions announced the launch of NPA Mobile, NPA’s newest online service that offers powersport dealers a wide variety of auction services, including the ability to preview and bid from any smartphone or tablet.
NPA Mobile allows dealers’ access to over 5,000 pre-owned powersports units monthly. When preparing for live auctions, dealers can utilize NPA Mobile to preview auction units, add items to their watch list and place proxy bids. For NPA’s online platforms, dealers are able to place bids and accept last-chance offers right from their smartphone or tablet. Dealers can also manage their account and access trusted NPA resources such as NPA Value Guide through NPA Mobile.
“We are extremely pleased with NPA Mobile and its quick adoption by powersport dealers,” said Jim Woodruff, NPA’s chief operating officer. “We realize we play a significant role in the growth and profitability of all our customers, and we are committed to providing them with the tools and first-class service they need to be successful.”
NPA reports that over the last three years its online utilization has grown over 300 percent.
“It is a testament to the quality of our condition reports and the trust our dealers and lenders have in our auction process,” Woodruff said. “We have seen the most growth in our 24/7 online auction platform, NPA eSale. It is essentially our fifth auction, located conveniently wherever our dealers happen to be.”
NPA eSale offers over 1,000 powersport units monthly and runs 24 hours a day, 7 days week.
“Dealers often treat NPA eSale like a virtual showroom, and now with NPA Mobile, they will be able to bid anywhere,” he said.
NPA Mobile offers more than just being able to preview or bid on auction items. NPA Mobile launches with a wide variety of the auction services including access to the NPA Value Guide, offering real-time wholesale market values on over 26,000 powersport models. NPA Mobile includes the essential and most used features of NPA’s website in a simple and clean format, making it easier and quicker for dealers to buy and sell through National Powersport Auctions.
