Bank of America, DataScan Launch Used-Car Buying Website

December 08, 2011

ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Bank of America and DataScan Field Services have launched a new Website that will provide used-car buyers with everything they’ll need to complete a vehicle purchase online.  

The site’s URL, PRNDL.com, was inspired by the gears symbols on an automatic transmission. And once there, shoppers can gain access to a variety of auto loan and financing options from reputable sources. The site also can link shoppers to InspectRide.com, which maintains a network of professional inspectors who can perform 150-point vehicle inspections.

“Our goal is to provide consumers with one tool to streamline what can be a cumbersome process when purchasing a used car,” said Brent Sergot, vice president of DataScan. “At PRNDL.com, we bring the most respected vehicle services in the market straight to the buyers, saving them from having to search the Internet for all of the services they would need to complete a purchase online.”

The Website also offers a vehicle protection plan from Century Warranty Services. It provides a selection of automotive service contracts backed by Courtesy Insurance Company, Century Warranty's affiliated insurance company. PRNDL.com can also be used as a tool for anyone buying a new or used car, according to the company.  

“PRNDL.com fills a critical niche in the online car-buying market, featuring services that are among the best in the industry,” said John Hyatt, president of Bank of America’s Dealer Financial Services. “In addition to providing convenience, PRNDL.com offers customers a sense of security with trusted providers. Bank of America is pleased to be a part of such a quality venture in the growing online automotive marketplace.”

PRNDL.com plans to add more functionality and additional services early in 2012, including transportation options for the delivery of newly purchased cars, vehicle insurance and services for vehicle sellers, according to the company.

“We have already identified some new providers that soon will add to the site’s already robust features and services,” explained Sergot. “In very short order, we’ll have everything the consumer will need to ‘get their deal in gear’ …except, of course, the car.”
