CARMEL, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- ADESA, a business unit of KAR Auction Services (NYSE: KAR), today announced the launch of its LiveBlock mobile app, available free for iPhone users.
Registered auto dealers can now participate from virtually anywhere in live vehicle auctions at ADESA locations across the country -- all from their smartphone.
"This app gives dealers easier access to vehicle inventory, even when they can't make it to an auction or their office," said Stéphane St-Hilaire, president and CEO of ADESA. "We will continue to develop new technology applications, expand our services and explore new products that enhance the customer experience both online and at auction."
The LiveBlock mobile app is very similar to LiveBlock on ADESA.com, which simulcasts vehicles worldwide via real-time audio and video feeds. On their iPhones, dealers can now search for specific inventory or browse run lists for upcoming sales. They can access photos and condition reports on those vehicles and even add vehicles to their Watch Lists.
When it's time to bid, LiveBlock mobile app users can participate in live auctions alongside dealers in the auction lanes as well those accessing LiveBlock on ADESA.com. The mobile app also streams live audio so users can hear the auctioneer and the bidding action.
Vehicles purchased and added to a Watch List through the LiveBlock mobile app are synced to that users account so that, no matter where a customer logs in, everything is consistent across devices -- from desktops, to laptops to smartphones.
The LiveBlock mobile app is free to download from ADESA.com/mobileapps or text ADESA to 89800.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
