“Cycle Trader is focused on providing maximum value and functionality to its growing network of 2000+ dealers,” said Jim Jensen, Brand Manager at Cycle Trader. “Our Full Throttle Solution, based on technology from eStara, provides dealers unique tracking numbers for online and off line advertising efforts and click to call functionality for online listings. Cycle Trader dealers now have the ability to optimize their online efforts, avoid lost leads and measure the effectiveness of their online and off line advertising all through a single, familiar portal.”
The Full Throttle Solution leverages an array of solutions from eStara including Click to Call which allows motorcycle buyers to navigate seamlessly from the Web to phone from Websites, emails or directory listings. Dealer listings are Click to Call-enabled by embedding a button on their listing and in turn, offer prospects a channel to immediately connect by phone.

eStara Call Tracking quantifies incoming leads for easier acquisition, retention and sourcing. Cycle Trader will consolidate its multi-vendor call tracking with eStara to receive a 360 degree view of every caller, call recording and dynamic call routing, ensuring advertisers receive local leads by geo-targeting where inbound calls are being initiated.
eStara’s full suite will be integrated with Cycle Trader’s inventory management system to provide dealers a single and familiar repository for all caller data and reports. As the final component of its Full Throttle solution, Cycle Trader will be adding Save & Send in the near future; this will allow users to save listings on their preferred devices and forward them to potential buyers, acting as a referral tool.
