ADESA has improved its digital inspection platform, enabling on-site vehicle inspectors with an advanced, hand-held, phone-based technology and software application to capture more precise and complete vehicle information.
ADESA’s new technology solution and software platform powers high quality inspections that improve transparency, relevance and accuracy, according to the company.
“The most important element for the digital transformation of our industry is the condition report —the ability to emulate that in-lane tire kicking through a virtual format,” said Srisu Subrahmanyam, chief operating officer of ADESA. “So we’re investing heavily in enhanced digital inspection tools to support a more consistent experience and give dealers the confidence and peace of mind they need when purchasing vehicles through digital channels.”
Inspections will include higher-quality and higher-resolution photos to enhance vehicle condition reports, the company said. With a more intuitive design, inspectors can complete each inspection more accurately and consistently, presenting the vehicle for sale with the most relevant and meaningful information to potential buyers.
ADESA has rolled out its new inspection capabilities across all U.S. locations, and anticipates completing onboarding of its Canada locations in the first quarter of 2021.
“As dealers turn to digital marketplaces to source and buy inventory, having a complete view of each vehicle’s condition has become essential,” said Richard Carpentier, head of inspection solutions at KAR Global and COO and SVP of Operations for AutoVIN.
