Arlington, TX – Auto inspection and reconditioning software provider AutoMobile Technologies, Inc., has come on board with the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association as a new National Member Benefit partner, making AMT’s digital inspection software available to association members and enabling them to designate select vehicles with certified pre-owned status.
AMT’s cutting-edge technology delivers best-in-class mobile vehicle inspection and auto reconditioning management services to independent auto dealers and brings a powerful, mobile-enabled, innovative, easy to implement, efficient and customer-centric vehicle inspection reporting resource to NIADA Certified dealers, enhancing inventory listing differentiation and customer trust through the digital or physical lot.
AMT’s InspectionNotes software enables the association’s members to complete the comprehensive 125-point NIADA Certified vehicle inspection electronically and generate digital and paper condition reports for the certification.
That allows dealers to integrate CPO inspections into their existing intake and reconditioning operations, and provide the value and security of CPO designation to their customers while increasing margins and decreasing turn time.
“We are proud to join with NIADA in providing its members the ability to offer NIADA Certified vehicles to their customers,” AMT executive vice president of operations Eric Meahan said. “We have seen the competitive advantage CPO vehicles have given our franchise clients, benefiting them in both revenue and customer satisfaction. The NIADA Certified program allows independent dealers to level the playing field with a similar solution.
“We applaud NIADA for adding this valuable program to its member services offerings.”
The InspectionNotes software allows technicians to scan a VIN on their mobile phone or tablet to begin the process, which takes them through a series of questions, ensuring each required item is inspected and verified. The resulting report is delivered in PDF format that can be loaded to website listings, emailed or printed to share with buyers.
InspectionNotes is a component of AMT’s ReconMonitor software, which gives dealerships visibility, command and control of the entire reconditioning process from acquisition to front line and every step in between.
“AMT brings an innovative commitment to the best in market technology, ease of use and corresponding profitability for our dealer members on the front and back end of their stores,” NIADA senior vice president of member services Scott Lilja said. “For our CPO dealers in particular, the mobile inspection solution is a huge enhancement over the current manual process, enhancing productivity, quality and ability to display both on the physical and digital lot.”
