International Auto Trader is an app and website developed by Techlantic to help facilitate how we can more efficiently work together with dealers in Canada, USA and Mexico and importers in Asia, Europe and Middle East.   This post highlights a few key steps to get setup with the app and how to get the most out of it.

Logging in for the first time

Anyone has the ability to create a login for the app, however it is important for Techlantic to setup the correct profile for your login.  If you are a long time customer of Techlantic it is possible you have a login already and you just need to reset your password.  To create a new login, visit the domain www.internationalautotrader.com and select “Sign Up”.   Fill in your basic information and you will be sent an email with instructions on setting up your password and logging in for the first time.  The default profile will allow you to fill in a little more information about your company.  Every time you “Submit” the form it will trigger an email to the Techlantic team.  It is important to fill in the form complete as incomplete submissions are unlikely to be approved for a profile change.

The Techlantic team works with dealers in Canada to post vehicles that are available for export.  There is a mix of new and used cars available.  One of the most powerful areas of the app is not the public vehicle listing however.  Where the app has been most useful is to keep track of “Requests”.  Once you have a login setup, you can browse to “My Requests” and hit the + button in the top right to create a new request.  The Techlantic team is automatically informed of your request and will search and recommend a vehicle.  If you put in a link to an existing vehicle available the Techlantic team will check on the availability and will quote on what your cost will be delivered to your destination port.
