Manheim has introduced its mobile app for Google Android smartphones. The app is available for download from the Android marketplace.
Now Android-device users – just like Apple iPhone users – can scan VINs, view the vehicle summary page, view Manheim Market Report (MMR) results, search for vehicles by inventory or location, place bids, buy now, make an offer, proxy bid and use all of Manheim’s mobile tools.
Manheim says its mobile app simplifies the research, buying and selling process for customers.
“It allows them to do all of their auction preparation work and conduct all of the necessary business transactions anytime and anywhere – outside of the auction or even in the lane. Each feature of the app is designed with the customer’s needs in mind,” the company said in a release.
Manheim says VIN scan is changing the way customers do business by making everything easier.
For example, after scanning a VIN (or entering a VIN manually), customers view a vehicle summary page that provides them with instant access to MMR results and information from an array of reports such as AutoCheck, CarFax, seller disclosures and/or condition reports.
The vehicle summary page allows customers quicker access to Manheim inventory because it gives them the ability to start the bidding or buying process right after scanning a VIN.
