Auto service provider GrooveCar has launched an iPhone/iPad app that helps connect members looking to purchase and finance a vehicle with credit unions.
The app features six sections. A home screen allows user to see GrooveCar videos and offers as well as current specials offered by the member's credit union. The pre-owned vehicle and new vehicle sections allow users to scan GrooveCar inventory by make, model, price range and location. The credit union section showcases the services offered by the member's credit union as well as ways to contact the credit union and to apply directly for a loan. The dealer section offers a network of dealers by make and location. The garage section allows the user to save cars they've viewed.
"Providing a mobile tool for our credit union partners and their members was very important for us. We had two goals when developing this app," said David Jacobson, GrooveCar's founder and president. "The first was to create an app that would live up to the reputation of our website and buying service. Secondly was to help credit unions capture more auto loans through both the direct and indirect channels".. "In addition, our call center will provide support to iPhone App users-a very rare offering. And, for those without an iPhone or iPad, they can easily visit our website," he added.
