DreamWare Inc. has officially become a CDK Global vendor, which will allow its Auto.Live service platform to be offered to CDK Global 8500+ U.S. franchise vehicle dealerships once its national pilot is completed. Auto.Live being integrated into the dealership DMS system will allow it to provide the communication needed to both a dealership and their customers throughout a vehicle’s service process. Auto.Live will launch its dealership service shop pilot program late October / early November in Colorado. It’s expected to be in the pilot stage for 3-5 weeks before then being offered on a national scale. DreamWare Inc. is still not saying much about its Auto.Live platform until pilot is complete.
In June, 2016 DreamWare Inc. had a very hard decision to make; CarLister.co was starting to pick up a lot of traction, however the name did not say all that it had become. The platform grew to incorporate franchise dealerships, and wanted to offer a richer engagement between a vehicle owner and the dealership from which they purchased and serviced their vehicle. DreamWare Inc. decided that now was the best time for a name change to better express that we offer more than just listing cars. And soon CarLister.co will transition into Auto.Live, keeping all of the rich features that consumers came to love about CarLister.co, without the branding restrictions. It will also offer an unparalleled level of communication and engagement between a vehicle owner and their dealership.

In June 2015, DreamWare, Inc. opened the gates to unleash its automotive web application to the masses. Since then, Car Lister has gained national business recognition in the auto industry. Bloomberg Television, Wall Street Journal, and Dow Jones are just a few of the top media outlets taking notice.
Car Lister’s online reach through prime sites such as Mashable, Time, People, and Facebook just to name a few, hit in the millions within a 3 day period, and the numbers keep growing. Additionally, sources like The Daily Mail out of the U.K., and Rocket News from Japan have put Car Lister in the forefront for international news along with dozens of other countries.
As a result of numerous dealerships in Colorado joining our new automobile platform, Car Lister saturated the localized area with traditional advertising. Billboards, television, and radio created more than paradigm results with an estimated 2,800 aired commercials between the three mediums just in the month of June.
“We’ve achieved great results with our targeted campaigns and plan on duplicating them in the next metro areas where the most dealerships come on board,” reported Bryan Harmon, CEO.

With all this publicity generated from the viral campaign, this has created huge momentum for Car Lister. The rigged taxi cab stunt has had nearly 500k YouTube views and has reached close to 10 million in TV viewership, domestically. Not only has the video spread throughout the United States, it has been viewed all over the world! Countries all over Europe and South America in addition to India and Australia were exposed to the video through several news outlets.
