ALPHARETTA, Ga. — DataScan Field Services, a floorplan verification and vehicle inspection company, will provide Subaru of America Inc. with compliance inspections for its Subaru Certified Pre-Owned (SCPO) program.
Beginning in January 2010, DataScan field representatives will work with participating Subaru dealers throughout the United States on SCPO program standards relating to vehicle eligibility, 152-point inspections (and associated reconditioning), vehicle history report availability and other best practices.
“What sets us apart is our approach — we consult and work one-on-one with the dealerships to help them remain compliant,” said Richard Carpentier, DataScan’s managing director. “After each inspection, our representatives sit down with the dealer’s management team and offer constructive feedback, resources and recommendations.”
DataScan has provided compliance and certified pre-owned vehicle inspections for Subaru in Canada since 2007. The company currently works with Subaru of America in many inspection capacities including end-of-lease, company demos, employee lease, promotional and consumer guaranteed trade-ins. Additionally, DataScan supplies Subaru of America with wholesale floorplan systems and floorplan verification.
Subaru of America has 600 dealers in the U.S. and 80 percent participate in SCPO. Year-to-date, the program has increased 60 percent in an overall declining market.
