vAuto Offers Carfax Data to Dealers

August 11, 2009

OAK BROOK, Ill. — Automotive data provider vAuto is providing its dealer customers with vehicle history information from Carfax through vAuto's used-vehicle software application.

With this current improvement, vAuto dealers get additional VIN specific details — including clean title and Carfax1-Owner indicators — to find out how similar vehicles are being marketed online by other dealers.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our dealers with the most comprehensive, real-time report on their used vehicles,” said Keith Jezek, vAuto’s president and CEO. “Our relationship with Carfax is an integral part of our business strategy to continue to provide our dealers with best-in-class technology and information.”

vAuto’s “Live Market View” of every used vehicle in the marketplace coupled with valuable information from Carfax provides vAuto’s dealer customers with a competitive advantage when pricing, appraising, and stocking vehicles. This data is available without having to navigate outside of the vAuto application.

“Carfax helps thousands of dealers sell cars faster and make more money,” said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. “Dealers using vAuto can better gauge the market supply of vehicles with similar history attributes to those in their inventory and price them aggressively.”

“vAuto and Carfax continue to provide innovative solutions for all dealers. The ability to simultaneously access Live Market Data and Carfax information allows us to streamline processes and be more efficient in our day-to-day operations,” said Bill Krouse of Polar Chevrolet in Minnesota.
