Run better than the competition with vAuto, the industry leader in inventory management solutions and live market data. With vAuto’s automotive software, support and vision, you can achieve record success in any market.
vAuto’s Live Market View separates us from the competition. Our technology, coupled with an extensive list of data partners, ensures you have the most accurate view of available vehicles and pricing to guide your new and used inventory management decisions. In short, you can see every car, every second, everywhere. We offer the industry’s first and only solution that drills deeper than the VIN- and trim-level comparisons offered by the competition.
Every day, dealers across America ask themselves three questions: Is this a car I want to stock? If so, how much do I want to pay for it? If I own it, how much should I ask for it?
In the past, dealers based decisions on intuition and vehicle age — supply and demand was anybody’s guess. But today, vAuto’s market-based metrics, the first and only in the industry, provide clear-cut guidance that goes wider and deeper than the competition to give you actionable market intelligence:
Market Days Supply: Now, the hidden market for any new or used vehicle is revealed in one powerful number — vAuto’s true market days supply. We scour the market to collect information no other provider can offer. We identify and compare every identical vehicle according to every factor that matters — far beyond just year, make, model and trim level. And we’re the only company that gets to this level of specificity. With accurate, real-time true market days supply, you can maximize your turn rates and your profits.
Cost to Market: This metric blends retail and wholesale valuations to tell you how much to pay for a used vehicle as you appraise and acquire inventory. The cost-to-market intelligence ensures you make your margin when you buy a car, maximizing your return on investment (ROI) and profitability on every retail unit.
Price to Market: This metric identifies each new or used vehicle’s retail “sweet spot” — the precise price point that maximizes buyer appeal and profitability. Coupled with vAuto’s Live Market View technology, the price-to-market metric ensures you price each car to meet or beat the competition — while still maximizing inventory turn rates and profitability.
vAuto’s used car inventory management tools and applications are fully optimized for mobile devices. Whether you’re behind your desk or on the go, you can manage each stage of a used vehicle’s lifecycle — from an initial VIN scan to a vehicle comparison report to close a customer — on your smartphone or tablet.
Set your inventory strategy to ensure you’re buying the most desirable and profitable used vehicles for your lot based on your market. With more than just a list of the “right” cars to acquire, you know where to acquire them quickly — and ensure the auction cars you need will fit your acquisition and retailing criteria.
Wholesale book values do not suggest what consumers are likely to pay for a used vehicle. Provision was the first to reveal a used vehicle’s appeal and competitive position in the current retail market. That’s because we take a retail-back approach, focusing on your exit strategy before you get into a car. In other words, our entire approach revolves around the pricing and profitability parameters that play best in your market.
And thanks to Provision, you can make used car appraisals based on up-to-the-minute data about all vehicles moving in and out of your market. Plus, you see a profile of your vehicle in a familiar format and refine your competitive set according to the most relevant attributes — at a level of detail no one else can offer.
The perfect cars for your inventory could be anywhere, and today’s dealers don’t have the time to waste searching auction after auction to find them. That’s why we developed Stockwave, the industry’s first wholesale solution deeply integrated with multiple leading auction houses across the country. It only takes a few seconds to sort through thousands of cars available at auctions nationwide — and with the power of vAuto’s real-time market data, we’ll even tell you which ones are the best buys for you.
