More minutes are now spent on the mobile market than the traditional internet. Thismeans handheld devices are being utilized more than notebooks and laptops.As we all know, there is an app for everything.

They are turning to their smartphones to search, research and shop.A digital change is occurring in terms of consumerism, and many businesses are now adaptingaccordingly. Websites in the automotive industry, like DealerApp Vantage, have created apps that allowthe consumer to quickly and easily access their information. This also aids in connecting consumers tospecific dealerships because of the ability for dealers to place ads and links with features like, “build yourcar now.”In order to retain customers, dealerships have also started providing free apps that allow the buyer toview their owner’s manual, see their maintenance schedule and schedule appointments. These types offeatures establish a more secure relationship between company and client; this ultimately ends up beingbeneficial for both parties.Flurry found that consumers spend an average of 9% more time using mobile apps than the web.
