ATLANTA – Manheim has launched AutoGrade, a new software enhancement that will improve the accuracy and consistency of electronic vehicle condition reports for its customers.

AutoGrade uses a point-based category formula to grade vehicles according to Manheim and National Auto Auction Association standards. AutoGrade assigns points to various mechanical, structural, body repair, and cosmetic defects.

One of many features included in InSight ECR, a vehicle condition report available online via Manheim pre-sale listings, Manheim Simulcast, and InSight ECRs include comprehensive data on a vehicle’s condition, including all equipment options, missing and damaged items, and recommended repairs.

AutoGrade will initially be offered on all dealer consignment vehicles that are inspected using InSight ECR, at no additional cost to customers. Over the next three months, AutoGrade will be available for Manheim’s commercial consignors on a client-by-client basis.
