Vancouver’s justcar celebrates launch event for new car appraisal app

Join Vancouver’s tech and auto industry insiders on June 4 at the city’s newest car experience and delivery centre for the launch of Carpraze. This fully automated vehicle valuation and appraisal system has arrived to solve one of the biggest problems facing every car dealership: How to appraise and value a pre-owned car accurately and quickly to get it back into the market?

“Carpraze is the solution our industry has been waiting for,” says Robert Wissenz, co-developer of Carpraze and Dealer Principal of justcar. “It tears down the old geographic confines of an auction house and moves car appraisals online through a centralized cloud-based hub. Carpraze also breaks down knowledge silos through information sharing.”

As a shared service accessed via a smartphone app, Carpraze shifts auto appraisal and trading into the 21st century. It becomes a more and more powerful tool for car dealers as more vehicle information is uploaded to the system over time. The result: quick, accurate appraisals specific to the local dealer’s market.

June 4 also marks the one-year anniversary of justcar - a living lab for the second buyer market. Justcar is disrupting the traditional bricks and mortar model of car dealerships by bringing Amazon-style online shopping to the car industry in Canada. It is an example of how the market is changing.

“People already buy books, shoes and movie tickets online. Today the technology is at our fingertips to chart a course to online car dealerships of the future. Our vision is, by 2024 this will be the dominant model in Canada - not the exception to the rule,” says Wissenz. Already, many of justcar’s customers are outside the Lower Mainland.

Attendees will have rare access to a demo of the Rplate, the world’s first digital license plate, by Reviver. This emerging technology is licensed for use in two states with four more coming on board soon.

If approved by ICBC, British Columbia would be the first province in Canada to make use of this more functional technology that is available now.
