Overland Park, KS, September 18, 2008 – VinSolutions, a leading provider of Web-based automotive software, announced today it has completed an integration with Kelley Blue Book’s InfoDriver™. As a result, VinSolutions’ clientele now have point-and-click access to data supplied by KBB’s expanded and redesigned data syndication solution. Subscribing dealers can access the data from VinSolutions’ MotoSnap CRM or from their inventory management module.
“The newest iteration of Kelley Blue Book’s data syndication products makes acquiring Kelley Blue Book vehicle information easier than ever before,” said Brad Prickett, Kelley Blue Book’s Director of Syndication Product Management. “The real power of this product is the combination of rich content in a flexible format. By incorporating Kelley Blue Book values in VinSolutions products, their customers now have quick access to accurate and timely vehicle values that are widely recognized by car shoppers.”
Incorporating 82 years’ worth of trusted KBB data into their software application, VinSolutions confidently supplies their clients with reliable used car data, vehicle trade-in, private party, wholesale, and suggested retail values. Whether subscribing users click on the Blue Book Valuation box from their MotoSnap CRM, or on the KBB Lookup box in their inventory management system, accurate vehicle valuation information is ready for immediate use.
“The direct link to reliable data that KBB’s InfoDriver™ provides saves our clients time, and we believe the quick access to trade-in values and suggested retail pricing for customer trade-ins gives our subscribing dealers an added advantage,” said Doug Kinney, VinSolutions’ CEO. “We’re pleased we are able to incorporate this powerful tool into our product lineup.” Dealers who choose to add this service to their existing CRM or inventory management solution will be able to print KBB suggested retail pricing on their used vehicle window stickers, and display comparisons between KBB and dealer-assigned prices on their VinSolutions Inventory Gallery or in their vehicle comment sections.
