MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Navex Inc., one of the leading software and technology providers for the tire and automotive aftermarket, has added Carfax® QuickVIN™ to its point of sale software offering. Users can now retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers’ cars more quickly and easily by entering only the license plate information.
According to a recent study by Carfax, eight out of ten shop management system users would prefer to have Carfax QuickVIN available with their current system. Users can eliminate the risk of costly data entry errors and help ensure they order correctly-fitting parts.
“With an ever increasing need to validate the specifics of a vehicle that you are servicing, capturing VIN numbers has become an important step in our vehicle processing,” said Bryan Edwards, franchisee of Big O Tires in Redding, Ca. “The challenge is accurately capturing the VIN quickly. Using Carfax QuickVIN has made this process much easier for our shop. It’s a huge time saver.”
Carfax QuickVIN users participating in the Carfax Service Network program can also have their service records turn into free advertising on Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Shop name and contact information appears alongside each service record on the Carfax Report, reaching millions of potential customers.
“We have always encouraged our dealers to capture VIN numbers. Since adding Carfax QuickVIN to Navex Shop Management system last year, it is easier than ever to do so,” said Clark Brown, President of Navex. “Simply entering a customer’s license plate number finds the corresponding VIN code, make, model and engine information and automatically enters it into the customer’s repair order. Carfax QuickVIN has become one of the favorite tools utilized by our dealers. It’s available in both our POS application and our Tablet application used at the car.”
