CARMUDI, the country’s number one dedicated online vehicle platform, participated in the just concluded 11th Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. This is the second time that the online car portal showcased its brand in the event that is dubbed as the largest gathering of car enthusiasts in the country.
The online site offer buyers, sellers and car dealers the ideal platform to find cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles in the fastest possible way. The company was founded in January 2013 and expanded rapidly in 20 countries across Asia, Africa, Middle East, and Latin America.
In the Philippines, the platform officially started in January 2014. When it joined the 10th MIAS, fewer people knew the start-up company. Today, however, it is considered as the most-used vehicle marketplace for Filipinos with close to 25,000 cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicle listings, both brand new and used.
“This year’s MIAS serves as a barometer on how well Filipinos have received the website in terms of helping them buy or sell their cars,” said Subir Lohani, managing director of Carmudi Philippines.
The Carmudi executive explained that in today’s growing e-commerce industry, engaging customers through industry-related events is necessary to retain them and get their feedback. “You need to go out there and interact with users as much as possible, even if your services or products are online. Our guiding principles are ease, trust and dedication. Nowhere else can you upload a car for sale in less than two minutes. We focus on making every part of the car buying and selling experience as hassle-free as possible.”
“Trust is key at Carmudi. We work with a committed team of local experts that ensure regular quality checks on the cars on our platform and update our inventory regularly to avoid fraudulent listings,” Lohani said.
