Skupe Net Solution Used

The Ad-Centric™ Classified Search platform was deployed to act as a central data hub for all members. From the hub, dealers are able to manage their car listings either via the hub directly or via their existing Showroom/CRM management systems. A new 'approved cars' website, www.beepbeep.ie is available to the public to search these high quality listings. In addition the system will also provide a car search function for the Car Dealers' own website, the Manufacturers' website and also send the cars to other publishers (online and printed).
