AuctionACCESS and Manheim say that dealers can now scan their AuctionACCESS Mobile Card at all check-in kiosks at Manheim U.S. auction locations, and that means those dealers can securely validate their identity and receive a bidder badge to enter the auction lanes.
AuctionACCESS is a credentialing system for the wholesale automotive industry, and AuctionACCESS senior vice president and chief operating officer Charlie Adams said the card provides greater security for its auction partners to validate their clients.
It also provides “an enhanced check-in experience for dealers doing business with Manheim,” Adams said in a news release.
To access their mobile card, dealers can download AuctionACCESS Mobile and use their AuctionACCESS username and password to log in to the app.
AuctionACCESS Mobile is available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
The companies say that the mobile card includes a feature similar to mobile airline boarding passes: The mobile card includes a unique QR code with enhanced security features, and those features can be scanned quickly to validate a dealer’s credentials.
Adams described the announcement as “a significant evolution in the history of the AuctionACCESS card,” and he said his company is pleased to bring the features to Manheim U.S. auction locations.
Manheim associate vice president of Operational Excellence Bob Grounds added, “AuctionACCESS is a valued partner in our industry, and we’re happy to be the first to bring this more efficient—and secure—check-in process to our clients.”
Grounds continued, “It’s one more way Manheim is improving the digital client experience at our locations.”
