OAK BROOK, Ill. — vAuto’s Provision inventory management system is now fully functional on mobile platforms, including Android- and Apple-powered smartphones and mobile devices.
“Provision’s mobile integration means dealers and their buyers have all the market data and information they need to efficiently acquire and merchandise the ‘right’ vehicles at their fingertips,” said Keith Jezek, vAuto president. “In today’s marketplace, 24/7-anywhere-access to inventory management data, technology and tools is absolutely essential for success.”
As part of the mobile integration, Provision features geolocation technology to boost dealer efficiency at physical auctions, according to vAuto. The technology recognizes auction locations and automatically provides vehicle buy lists and bidding recommendations.
“Our goal is to make sure dealers and their buyers hit the ground running, working faster and smarter as they evaluate and bid on vehicles,” Jezek says.
Dealers can now use Provision on their hand-held devices to access and manage vehicle buy lists, condition reports and bidding recommendations created in the Provision system. Users can also monitor the performance of used-vehicle inventories and make pricing and merchandising adjustments to maximize turn and gross profits. Functionality also includes expediting the transport and merchandising of acquired vehicles.
