WESTCHESTER, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions on Tuesday rolled out a tailored Web site that executives insist can offer access to key tools and features via any Web-capable phone.

The company listed several new capacities of IAA Mobile CSAToday that are intended to help customers manage their salvage units more efficiently. The features include:

—Perform vehicle searches and inquiries for a unit located at any of IAA's more than 150 branch locations throughout North America using a stock, claim, or policy number, as well as VIN or owner's name.

—Provide real-time information amongst all parties by offering visibility to vehicle status, notes, storage and inventory location, photos, and more.

—Search a vehicle's average salvage value from IAA's comprehensive warehouse of salvage auction data.

—Set or update minimum bids.

—Manage I-Buy Fast vehicles enabling IAA's buyers to purchase vehicles between auction dates.

Executives pointed out that access to Mobile CSAToday is available at no extra cost. For more information, they instructed clients to contact their IAA sales representative or send a message to info@iaai.com.

"We have been excited about Mobile CSAToday from the very start. It was a collaborative effort with our customers who wanted mobile access at their fingertips — literally," explained Tom O'Brien, chief executive officer of IAA.

"There is no slowing them down now since there is nothing to download. They simply log into the site and get the information they need quickly," O'Brien continued.

"We are pleased that this first phase offers our customers, the unique ability to be mobile, on-the-go, and on the road," he concluded.
