The iDirect service has always been one of IBC Japan’s more innovative offerings and feature in their website. Simply put, it’s like a search engine that lets customers search for export-quality used vehicles that are available from more than 100 auction houses located in Japan. For active bidders, it’s especially advantageous for them to be able to have access to more than 150,000 used cars in one sitting.
These same users will be glad to know that IBC Japan is continuing to improve the bidding experience with the introduction earlier this year of iDirect Lite Beta, a new and faster version of the original iDirect.
IBC’s customers will discover that with this version, the iDirect interface has been made even more streamlined. The search filters found in the search page has been simplified further so that searching for auctioned used cars can be faster and easier.
And once you search, you will find that the search results display has also been improved. Information about the vehicles are shown on a grid arrangement that’s easier to read and cross reference. The thumbnail images are also optimized for faster loading which means you can view the vehicles you’ve searched more quickly.
In the previous iDirect version, you had to go through the shopping user interface when you bid. This may be preferred for some but for others who don’t, this is skipped in the new iDirect Lite Beta. That means that the bidding process will be shorter.
Understandably, there will be other users who have gotten used to the old iDirect version and may not be ready to switch to the new version. Not to worry, IBC Japan still allows users to use the old version as an option.
