Fyusion, which enables the creation of high resolution, optimized 3D images with deep AI understanding, today announced it has surpassed one million 3D car images created for Manheim Express, a digital app for auto dealers to buy and sell wholesale inventory on demand. Sales through Manheim Express have grown significantly over the last year, increasing approximately 230% from 2020 – 2021.
Launched in 2018, Manheim Express helps dealers remarket trade-ins and aged inventory without the car having to leave the dealer lot. The dealer can choose to capture the vehicle themselves using the app, or have the vehicle imaging and condition report created by a trained Manheim Express Concierge specialist using the same Fyusion-powered technology.
Buyers on Manheim Express enjoy an interactive, lifelike 3D image of each vehicle, with rich detail provided by audio and visual tags. These images are created in a matter of minutes through a simple vehicle walk around using common smartphones.
With over 150 patents, Fyusion is a global leader in AI-driven 3D imaging. The company’s technology enables 3D images to be captured from common smartphones without any special Fyusion’s AI engine, ALIS, which can do everything from smoothing out shaky camera work to creating seamless moveable images and 360s.
“Surpassing one million 3D car images created by Manheim Express customers is a huge achievement both for Fyusion and for the entire team at Manheim Digital,” said Radu Rusu, CEO and cofounder of Fyusion. “It is a testament not only to the engineering behind Fyusion’s products, but also to their scalability for the world’s largest automotive applications.” Fyusion has worked with Manheim, a Cox Automotive subsidiary, and other Cox Automotive companies for over four years. In January 2021, Fyusion announced its acquisition by Cox Automotive.
