SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Experian Automotive announced that it has enhanced its vehicle data service offerings with Manheim.

In addition to providing auction data to Experian's AutoCheck reporting service, a free vehicle history snapshot will now be offered to give dealers immediate access to potential vehicle condition issues on www.manheim.com, OVE.com and Manheim Simulcast.  

The AutoCheck snapshot features "a quick and easy view" of the potential issues in a vehicle's history, directly from online presale listings and also offers dealers the option to purchase full AutoCheck reports.

"The combination of Manheim's data and AutoCheck's industry-recognized vehicle history reports will give dealers a new level of buying intelligence with quick, easy access to the information they need," explained Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive.

"Working with Manheim allows us to bring a consistent repository of reliable auction-announced information to used-vehicle dealers," he added.

As part of the strengthened relationship with Manheim, Experian's AutoCheck will continue to incorporate Manheim's auction-announced information, such as frame or unibody damage, into its vehicle history reports. According to Experian, this information tends to be among the most important aspects of a vehicle's history that used-car buyers want to know before making a purchase.

"Manheim is dedicated to providing its customers with the information they need to make smart vehicle purchases," pointed out Nick Peluso, senior vice president of customer management at Manheim.

"Building on our existing relationship with Experian Automotive helps ensure that dealers have access to the best information to determine the right vehicles for their inventories," he added.
