WebLot Enterprise Backend

"Ken Rucker has been absolutely phenomenal in assisting our dealership in the transition to WalkTheLot.com. From the very first phone call he was attentive to our needs and specifically what features we were looking for, and suggested the right package for us. Once we signed up with WalkTheLot, he was incredibly helpful in setting up inventory feeds to all of our providers, going over the MobileLot operation, and answering any other questions we managed to come up with. Given the chance, I would highly recommend Ken Rucker and the WalkTheLot.com team to others in the auto industry. "

Our Robotics

Most automated WalkTheLot and webLot functions are handled by our own custom created and self-maintained software robots, rather than a hacked together mass (or better said "mess") of server scripts.This enables us to have superior performance, management, tracking and logging, as well as better organization.

Our Import Robot

Unlike most other services, we realize that clients can't wait until a certain once or twice a day pre-defined time to have their inventory uploads processed. Therefore, our import robot checks every 5 minutes for any client uploaded vehicle inventory files. When files are found, the robot immediately starts processing them in a batch process. When an upload is processed and completed, the client is notified via email (and also optionally to a field tech email address as well) with a status report. The status report lets them know various statistics about the inventory upload and whether it was successful or it failed, so that they may quickly rectify any issues found.

Our Image URL Robot

This robot constantly monitors the vehicle databases for vehicles that have had their image URL's updated. If the image URL has changed, the robot downloads the latest image from the remote web server and updates the various vehicle image files and thumbnails. For parties who support adding a date/time stamp as a parameter to the end of the photo URL's they send us, this saves processing time while importing photo URL's as the system will ignore re-downloading photos where the date/time stamp has not changed.

Our Data Feed Robot

This robot handles all outbound feeds to 3rd party sides such as AutoTrader®, Cars.com®, Dealer.com®, etc.

Each hour the robot checks each outbound vehicle data feed for any feeds that need to be processed. It is capable of sending hundreds of outbound feeds simultaneously.

Feeds can be scheduled to be sent according to a wide variety and combination of scheduling schemes, depending on how often and when the recipient wants, or is able to receive them, such as;. One or more specific times a day, every X number of minutes, daily, weekly, whenever vehicle data changes, etc.  There is however a minimum rest of 4 hours between any particular feed resending so that a feed doesn't continually send in a loop because the dealer is making constant changes throughout the business day.

In the event of an outbound feed failure, our staff is notified. Feeds don't just sit there failing for days, weeks, or months. Someone looks into it.

One of the most helpful features is feed logging. This seems like common sense, but many companies do not keep nor provide logs for their clients. With each feed, both WalkTheLot staff AND you the client may view both the last file sent and a complete and detailed log file for up to 7 days. This might not initially seem like much of a feature, but when a 3rd party starts to play the blame game, or an issue needs to be troubleshot, this simple feature is a real stress and time saver, and can greatly help a window sticker company save face with a dealer client when another party is blaming them for something that is not a failure on their/our end.

We also utilize other automated routines and custom robots, such as those that generate vehicle audio narration for vehicles, move files between servers, process DMS polling and group feed imports, and more. All of which are written by us for us, so that we are not dependent on an external programmer should we need to troubleshoot anything or adjust our internal robotic procedures and processes.
