Aaron,
Like what I see so far, looking for examples of your inventory platfom in use. All I saw was dc motors. May I suggest that you post a client list, because right now it looks as if you have just one client and your last update was ove 1 year ago.

I am looking at how your platform handles vin/option decoding (which is an industry wide SNAFU).

thnx,
Joe

ahh... very nice Aaron.
I'll dig into your client list and see what you've got going on. While you're building out your new site, I HIGHLY reccomend that you add Video or Camtasia presentations to help explain your features and benefits.

You've caught my eye when I saw the "ken burns" effects (Photo Pan/Zoom Video) . I am manually building Still Photo Pan/Zoom Videos and doing voice overs, see www.breseechevrolet.com/ I've been hunting for an inventory host that could automatically build these on the fly. The digital voice reader is good, but May I suggest that you offer an option where a subscriber could add a voice over to the video.

Thnx, looking foward to digging into your platform.
Joe

I've been hosting my site with Idealer Network since August 2007. Our site is awesome. What sold me on Idealer was the overall appearance of the inventory detail pages. The photo slideshow is top notch. The supposed new car configurator and vin decoder were also major selling points. HOWEVER, shortly after I signed up I found out there was some lawsuit and Idealer was no longer able to pull the graphics and information for their cofigurator or 07-08 decoder info. So, I got over it and waited patiently....then I was told it was almost done for several weeks and promised we would be the first to have it up...it's still not up! Now, when i call support i get voicemail. When I email Aaron I get no response. I'm starting to wonder if my website provider is still in business? If someone from Idealer Network reads this please give me a call or email me.
Thanks,

Chris,
They are different. The "Ken Burns" Slide Show is annoying. Love the image size.

Speaking of image size...
Your camera flash is on too often on the interior shots.
Love your indoor photo area, very clean and bright.
Your camera may need some work, it's either set wrong, or it could uses an upgrade. It seems to wash out on very bright days and struggles with the bright white walls inside.

On the interior shots, made indoors, experiment with turning that flash off and swing thoses doors open. Indirect light is your friend, find it or make it when ever you can!

Love your work!
Joe
