SpinCar Partners with Carfax to Promote Transparency in Vehicle Merchandising

Platform integration provides consumers with one-click access to Carfax vehicle history reports

from 360° WalkArounds®

SYRACUSE, NY – June 18, 2019 – SpinCar, the global leader in digital automotive merchandising software, announced today a partnership with Carfax that enables car shoppers to seamlessly access Vehicle History Reports directly from 360° WalkArounds. Carfax dealers can now showcase Vehicle History Reports from within both exterior and interior vehicle views for any used car. The integration enables auto dealers to provide greater transparency to car shoppers by offering them an easy way to access Carfax Reports while they are exploring vehicles on a dealer’s website. SpinCar is the first and only digital merchandising platform to offer this integration.

SpinCar’s digital merchandising platform enhances online vehicle detail pages (VDPs) by delivering more engaging and personalized experiences for shoppers. In partnership with Carfax, Vehicle History Reports have been added as clickable feature buttons on all exterior and interior 360° vehicle WalkArounds. Shoppers can access the Vehicle History Report by clicking on the Carfax button from within any walkaround. This new capability is available for all active Carfax dealers.

“SpinCar and Carfax both share a commitment to helping people more confidently shop for used vehicles,” said Jim Sharifi, spokesman for Carfax. “Whether it’s by providing valuable vehicle history information or by delivering interactive tools to empower consumers, we share a common goal of helping buyers and sellers build trusted relationships. This partnership is a win for both consumers and dealers, and we look forward to working with SpinCar to find even more ways to create greater levels of transparency in the car buying process.”    

“Carfax is the most trusted source of vehicle history information for used car shoppers, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to make it even easier for consumers to access the information they need to make more informed buying decisions,” said Devin Daly, SpinCar Co-Founder and CEO. “The increased visibility and seamless access to Vehicle History Reports make virtual walkarounds an even more engaging online experience. For dealers, this integration provides a powerful new way to promote Carfax Reports for their vehicles and build even greater levels of trust and confidence for online shoppers.”
