PAVE by Discovery Loft Selected by TradeBid, Ireland’s First Digital Dealer-to-Dealer Automotive Marketplace | News

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. October 2022–

PAVE, the world’s first automated vehicle inspection platform, today announced its successful expansion into new markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Central and South America. One of Discovery Loft’s first clients in Ireland is TradeBid, the country’s first dealer-to-dealer marketplace to use PAVE to enable car dealers to buy and sell used cars.

PAVE enables TradeBid to build trust with platform users and keep inventory – and traders’ sales – flowing while trade vehicle purchases are invisible. “In Ireland and abroad, there is a trust gap in the trade-in process,” says Conor O’Boyle, co-founder of TradeBid. “PAVE allows our buyers to bid with confidence and our sellers to understand the real value of their vehicle without subjective forces at play.”

When TradeBid customers upload a vehicle to the platform for sale, PAVE uses artificial intelligence to provide full vehicle details, including images highlighting damage and estimated repair costs. Within two minutes, it generates a vehicle quality and condition report, which TradeBid in turn shares with buyers and sellers – greatly speeding up the trading process. Compared to a traditional auction where delivery and inspection requirements can take vehicles off the market for up to two weeks, PAVE allows TradeBid customers to complete the entire process in just a few days. Since launching PAVE in December 2021, TradeBid has generated more than 5,000 PAVE reports.

“The pace at which PAVE has been accepted and introduced in international markets shows us that our solution is urgently needed to simplify and streamline vehicle inspection,” said Brian Steinhauser, co-founder and co-CEO of PAVE. “We expect to continue our global expansion at a rapid pace.”
