September 4, 2007

ALPHARETTA, Ga. — DataScan Field Services, a floorplan audit and vehicle inspection company in the automotive industry, has contracted with Chrysler Financial to provide off-lease inspections in Ontario and Western Canada, including British Columbia. This new venture is a major expansion for DataScan Field Services in the Canadian market.

After inspections are complete, DataScan Field Services sends its findings to ATC-Onlane — an automotive industry remarketing company, which operates a variety of wholesale online auction sites for Chrysler Financial.

DataScan Field Services initially expanded its U.S.-based operations into Canada in July 2006. It employs more than 100 field specialists and works with 2,000 Canadian dealerships, serving clients in every province. Through its network of more than 550 North American field specialists, the company provides services at 26,000 dealerships in the United States and Canada with a mission to deliver best-of-class audit and vehicle inspection solutions on a greater scale.
