Black Book will begin offerings it valuation data AutoAlert, a data-mining and communication solution, under a new partnership. Under this agreement, Black Book will populate AutoAlert’s algorithms with its proprietary vehicle values, the company has announced.

The goal of this partnership is to maximize sales opportunities and profit potential in a variety of environments such as trade valuations and during service and repair visits, according to the company.

“Data and equity mining are practices that are not necessarily new to the automotive world, but recently have become even more critical as dealers continue to find ways to maximize profits in light of a sales environment that has begun to plateau,” said Jared Kalfus, senior vice president of Black Book.
