DataScan is a provider of wholesale floorplan accounting and risk management systems, automotive floorplan inventory verification services, and off-lease vehicle inspections.

In Europe, EXCON will market DataScan's state-of-the-art wholesale floorplan accounting and risk management software systems, such as its newly upgraded Wholesale Management Suite software, to its growing client list of auto manufacturers, financial institutions and insurance companies. The upgraded version will offer further support for multi-national organizations, including expanded support for multiple currencies, taxation, and languages with double-byte character sets.

In addition, EXCON and DataScan will jointly market floorplan inspection and verification services in North America and Europe.

"We are pleased to have DataScan as our partner to market EXCON’s risk management solutions in North America," said EXCON's CEO Dr. Johannes Clauss.

"By bringing EXCON's service success to the U.S. and Canada, we are enhancing our current products and services – and are better able to serve our clients’ needs. Through our alliance we can also position ourselves strategically for future global growth opportunities."
