At WalkTheLot.com we've been doing what we do for over 20 years... longer than most others in the business. In that time we've developed, proven & refined the private infrastructure that has both successfully driven our products and services as well as provided reliable and quality services for our clients.
Although we've been around longer than most, our name historically hasn't been much in the forefront of the automotive industry. This is due to the fact that we don't persue direct dealer business but rather quietly provide the underlying technology that many dealer services providers use to run their businesses. Additionally, due to our niche market, we do not advertise in industry publications.
For 2022 we are expanding to also provide services and infrastructure for 3rd parties in need of vehicle data hosting, data warehousing and aggregation services. These services are typically used for dealership web hosting providers and classified sites who do not want to or cannot maintain the appropriate infrastructure for FTP inventory uploads, vehicle data distribution, hosting vehicle data, images & other media, data processing robotics, dealer login backends, etc.
Unlike many others, we do not host data on expensive transactional based cloud services such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, etc. This allows us to offer better pricing by keeping costs down and also offer and maintain more control. All of our data, sites and robotics are hosted on our own private physical servers on one of the top and most reliable service providers on the planet.
All of our coding is done in-house in the United States. We do not offload programing work offshore. This allows quicker implimentation, better oversight in regard to quality, and also helps to support the financial best interest of our own Country.
If you have a need to have dealers login to our backend to manage their inventory, private label branding (sub domain e.g. https://dealers.yourdomain.com, logo, color scheming) is available at no additional charge. Depending on your use-case and volume, we may also be able to offer branded FTP and email services.
Although in most cases the systems and robotics that we have in place work for most clients, for clients with unique needs, custom data processing programming and data access methods (such as secure web accessible JSON, XML, etc.) is also available.
Since no company in need of these types of services is alike, please contact us to discuss your unique needs and let's see how we can serve you with a solution specific to your needs. We look forward to serving you.
