Carpe Diem is a web dev agency that delivers digital foundations for human destinations, born from strategic consultation with partners, not clients.

That means applying a common-sense and commercial approach to your every need whilst always putting the user experience at the heart of any solution. With expertise from branding to back-end integrations, we see websites as the beating digital heart of any organisation - be that B2C or B2B, third or public sector.

And with in-house expertise that spans every facet of digital development we are also well placed to assess innovations - be that new platforms, bolt-ons or business opportunities. As a result we have supported entrepreneurs to break into markets, early adoption to disruption, and advised angels and VCs on due diligence for tech investments.

Facebook App with Stock-Search Capability

As the vehicle sales media company, AutoTrader required a way of allowing dealers on its network to install an AutoTrader app into their own Facebook page which would allow potential buyers to carry out searches, view available vehicles and car specs and then to make enquiries via the AutoTrader database.

We created a bespoke, hosted Facebook app which could be used by car retailers across the UK,  integrated with the AutoTrader vehicle search capability.

How we did it

Working with the AutoTrader IT and Social Media teams, we carried out extensive user experience and user interface (UX and UI) testing to ensure the quality associated with the brand was exceeded. The result of our design and development work was a user-friendly app that automatically synced  retailers’ available stock lists live from the AutoTrader stock system using a bespoke API and XML data feeds.

On the back-end, an online control panel was created which allowed AutoTrader staff to manager the dealers given access to the application.
