New Delhi: India’s pioneering online automobile transactional marketplace, Droom launched its mobile-based auto inspection solution ‘ECO’ in association with Carnation Auto to improve transparency as well as trust factor associated with buying and selling of used automobiles.
Available on the Google Play Store, the app will enable sellers to schedule comprehensive automobile inspections from highly trained and certified professionals, called Ninjas through its platform.
The ECO Ninja will perform an auto inspection using Droom’s proprietary methodology and covers an exhaustive list of all the important points in a vehicle to generate a comprehensive auto inspection report.
This digital report will be made available to the buyers while viewing the vehicle, empowering them with the knowledge to make the most informed decisions.
Droom’s partnership with Carnation will also allow ECO users access to Carnation’s extensive network of workshops and skilled technicians.
Speaking on the launch, CEO and Founder Droom, Sandeep Agarwal said, “Unlike US, Western Europe and Japan, India is low trust market in general and buyers for used automobiles suffer from information asymmetry and moral hazard. In India, buying a used automobile is full of pain points, hassles and pitfall.”
“With Eco launch, Droom has deepened its commitment to increase trust and transparency for used automobile transactions in India. Eco is India’s most scientific, comprehensive objective and unbiased automobile inspection and verification service,” added Sandeep.
In his acknowledgement to the ECO initiative and Carnation’s partnership with Droom, Managing Director Carnation Auto, Jagdish Khattar said, “The used car sales continue to grow exponentially in India. The ECO app has the potential to reduce information asymmetry in pre – owned cars transactions. Carnation being the leader in the Car Inspection space is extremely excited about partnering with Droom to power ECO for its launch across India.”
“Together we will take selling and buying of used cars to the next level. This concept will leverage Technology to empower the automobile technicians and certification engineers- the real heroes of Make in India,” added Jagdish.
Droom’s latest move is being welcomed by the automobile technicians as well, who will leverage the ECO app as a channel to increase their consumer outreach and visibility.
With a simple on-boarding process that requires a basic understanding of English, a smart device, technical skills and the mobility to travel from one place to another, technicians can become ECO certified Ninjas through the tutorials on the app and make earnings of up to Rs. 30,000 per month. (ANI)
