Dreamware, parent company of Car Lister, a Naples, Florida-based web application that lets sellers list and buyers shop for new and pre-owned cars from any smartphone, tablet or desktop, raised $6.5m in angel funding.
In addition to the funding, Robert Scott, former President and Chief Operating Officer of Morgan Stanley, joined Dreamware as non-executive Chairman of the Board. Scott will help steer the strategic direction of Dreamware from early stage to enterprise stage.
The company intends to use the funds for national expansion, which currently includes more than 200 automotive dealers across 29 states.
Launched in October 2014, Car Lister allows users to instantly list vehicles for sale by providing the VIN number and answering a series of quick questions. The application generates titles and vehicle descriptions, allows for the upload of images and video, and includes a full vehicle history report at no cost.
