LOS ANGELES — Dealer management systems provider Nowcom has announced the integration of Experian Automotive's AutoCheck vehicle history reporting service into Nowcom's Dealer Desktop DMS.

"Through our partnership with Experian Automotive and AutoCheck, we have been able to provide our customers with a complete integration of services to help run their business," said Miguel Jurado, Nowcom's director of dealer services. "Our subscribers can now run AutoCheck reports directly from Dealer Desktop and save themselves the hassle of double entry."

The partnership will allow Nowcom's independent dealers to run AutoCheck vehicle history reports on their used-vehicle inventories and display the reports to potential customers on both the vehicle and the dealer's Website. AutoCheck vehicle history reports include potentially undisclosed or unknown problems such as title brand records, prior accident history or odometer issues, all of which can influence an automobile's safety and resale value.

"Being able to quickly access and convey the historic information on a used vehicle is invaluable to any used vehicle dealer looking to maintain a competitive and effective business in today's trying market," said Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive. "We're pleased to partner with Nowcom in integrating AutoCheck into their dealer software to help their independent dealer customers close sales with confidence."
