Manheim Wins Award

manheimManheim won the Product Launch of the Year award from the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) Product Management Society for the launch of its new product Simulcast on Mobile.

The traditional Simulcast product allows car dealers to virtually bid on and buy cars at Manheim's auction-house locations from desktop or laptop computers. The new mobile Simulcast product puts all of the power of the Manheim marketplace in the palm of the customer's hand, allowing dealers to bid on and buy used vehicle inventory anytime and anywhere using their mobile device.

Beta testing for Simulcast on Mobile began in December, and the new product launched officially at the 2013 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) convention earlier this month where dealers and media received live demonstrations from Manheim's product managers at the company's booth. Simulcast on Mobile is available on Apple devices and will launch in the Android marketplace this spring.

"We're honored to receive this award from TAG, and I'm so proud of the team who helped to bring Simulcast on Mobile to the market," said Bonnie Hensler, vice president of product operations for Manheim. "The successful launch of Simulcast on Mobile was a collaborative effort between many departments across Manheim, and it's all part of our mission to put game-changing information in our customers' hands. Our product development strategy boils down to one thing - provide visionary solutions to help our customers win."
