Analytics, like you’ve never seen them

A good customer experience isn’t restrictive.

Don't funnel prospective customers down buying journeys that lock them out of the majority of your stock. 


Engage is a sophisticated search engine that allows consumers to find vehicles using real-world language and context-rich searches like ‘big boot’ or ‘large family car’, returning a broader set of results, showcasing more of your stock, without accidentally ruling out prospective vehicles.

The smart search capabilities of Engage revolutionises the way your customers can search for vehicles, making the discovery experience faster and more accurate, with additional filters built-in to allow more targeted searches including budget and more.

Why choose Engage?

How many people know what car they want?

Consumers don’t come to market with a clear picture of what they’re looking for. Research shows that six out of ten car shoppers enter the market unsure of which vehicle to buy.

Are people happy with the vehicle they choose?

Broadening the search results with an innovative and clever platform helps increase buyer satisfaction. According to Autotrader research, up to 85% of car buyers don’t think the car they purchased was the right vehicle for them. Make sure your customers find the vehicle they want easily and effectively.

Why should I care about the online shopping experience?

Consumers are expecting increasing digital engagement, and car retailers are up against the likes of Amazon, John Lewis or eBay, which are rated as the best online shopping experience by around two-thirds of shoppers.

Engage provides a similar retail experience to those giants for your business, incorporating targeted results and lifestyle or feature-based searches into the vehicle retail sector.

How far will customers travel to buy a vehicle?

Technology has opened consumers’ eyes to a wider pool of potential purchases across a much larger area, with the average distance a customer is willing to travel for their next vehicle growing significantly in recent years.

Engage allows visitors to control the radius and location of vehicles they are searching for, putting them in control without the retailer needing to do anything.
