Fast-Growing AutoMap Expands to Europe with Inaugural Office in London

Tracking a vehicle instantly decreases the amount of time each audit takes, ensuring a smoother, faster process.

AutoMap recently announced it has expanded to Europe, opening its first office in the United Kingdom.

The AutoMap vehicle tracking system enables dealers to take total control over their inventory across large and multiple lots. A Bluetooth-enabled onboard diagnostics device (OBD) chip is attached to each vehicle, a set up process that takes less than 30 seconds per vehicle and requires zero manual entry. Once the device is enabled, each vehicle’s location is broadcast to the main software site, or AutoMap app on mobile, for tracking. The chips are engineered for varying climates and have almost no effect on vehicle batteries because of their low power need.

“Our AutoMap solution has been wildly successful in the U.S., and we’re pleased to now offer the same solution to our European colleagues,” said Mark Sargeant, vice president of logistics and business development for AutoMap. “Establishing an office in London was the next meaningful step in making our award-winning locator technology available to other markets.”

With AutoMap, staff can search inventory by VIN, stock number or model with a desktop computer or smartphone, reducing the time it takes to connect customers to their preferred vehicle. Additionally, sales managers can discover which vehicles need a jump, have too little (or too much) fuel and are throwing error codes.

“Saving time is just as important to car buyers in Europe as it is in this country. With AutoMap, anyone at a dealership can find the exact vehicle a customer seeks in seconds, helping to increase customer satisfaction while streamlining the sales process,” said Sargeant.

Lenders also benefit from AutoMap through faster and more accurate audits. Tracking a vehicle instantly decreases the amount of time each audit takes, ensuring a smoother, faster process.
