The techies behind Click Click Car think they have built a better software platform to make leasing a new car as simple as a few taps on a computer and delivery to the customer’s home.
The East English Village-based startup, formerly uNetworked, is in the final stages of developing an online marketing platform for automotive dealers. The idea is to streamline the automotive leasing process so online consumers can pick the vehicle they want and get the best price as quickly as possible.
"It allows a potential car lease to shop for a car, find the car they like and get the lease price accurate to the penny," says Terry Bean
, chief networking officer at Click Click Car
. "It gives them all the forms then need. We will bring the car to them for a test drive or deliver it if they intend to lease it."
Click Click Car and its team of five people, and the occasional intern, are putting the finishing touches on the platform and expect to launch it before the end of the month. They are currently working with an automotive dealership that carries the Buick, GMC, Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep brands. Bean declined to name the dealership beyond saying its based on the east side until after the software launches.
Click Click Car is also the software firm behind the 313DLove
event earlier this month at Charles H. Wright Museum for African-American History
. The event focused on the positive buzz the Motor City generates online, highlighting it with the #313DLove hashtag.
"We're trying to bring that lovefest from online to the real world," Bean says
