Tractable, Black Widow Collaborating on Enhanced Imaging Solution

Black Widow will harness the power of Tractable's AI to offer accurate and consistent vehicle assessments as part of its proprietary imaging system.

Black Widow Imaging and Tractable, the company developing artificial intelligence (AI) for visual assessment and disaster recovery, will collaborate to transform automotive sales with deeper and more transparent insights into a vehicle’s condition. By combining their industry leading technologies, Black Widow and Tractable can offer auto resellers a comprehensive assessment of vehicles during the sales process.

Through the collaboration, Tractable’s AI will use the images captured by Black Widow’s proprietary system to detect external damage and generate a vehicle condition report, which outlines estimated repair costs. By using Tractable’s AI to inspect vehicles during the remarketing and merchandizing process, auctions, dealerships and repair facilities receive an accurate and consistent assessment of vehicles, allowing them to make faster and better-informed sales decisions.

Black Widow uses an eight camera, drive through system that captures high definition vehicle images within seconds and can be automatically edited and published online. Tractable’s technology will be seamlessly integrated into existing Black Widow imaging systems.

Jason Hauk, CEO of Black Widow said, “In today’s white-hot car market, anyone selling a vehicle is required to make decisions with extreme speed and precision. By working with Tractable, we’re able to offer sellers an all in one tool that not only gives their customers accurate and detailed insights into potential purchases, but also provides a competitive edge with no extra effort required by the seller.”

Jimmy Spears, head of automotive at Tractable said, “Purchasing a car is one of the biggest investments a consumer makes, and today’s digital world demands this experience is informative and frictionless. Layering Tractable’s AI into Black Widow’s imaging system will slice the time it takes to bring a used car to market, while offering consumers a more transparent picture of their purchase.”

Autosled Announces Multiple Product Upgrades

Improved shipment visibility and transporter payment system among updates affecting retail automotive dealers looking to ship cars and trucks.

Autosled announced that it has released multiple product improvements for its nationwide vehicle transport and logistics platform. As a disruptor in the mobility and digital logistics space with a proven track record of excellence, Autosled is constantly improving upon its existing products and infrastructure.

The most recent product rollouts improve functionality for transporter teams within the Autosled network. Providing additional visibility into the available loads along each driver’s individual route saves time while also providing improved service to dealerships needing to move vehicles faster. In addition, Autosled’s new one-click reassignment function saves both dispatchers and drivers significant time, especially when a change needs to be made while a vehicle is en route. Large transport companies with multiple drivers will greatly benefit from these process improvements. Autosled’s mobile application, iOS version 3.1.1, now includes a popup alert informing the driver if the load requires an enclosed trailer, contains any inoperable vehicles, or necessitates special instructions required by the shipper. This has been especially helpful as Autosled increases its coverage at ports and railyards nationwide. These considerations provide that only drivers who can meet the specifications drive to pick up these vehicles- cutting down on pickup cancellations and wasted time.
