Insurance Auto Auctions Continues to Improve Industry Leading Online and Mobile Online Capabilities
Buyers and Providers Find Vehicles Faster and More Efficiently Online and On Their Mobile Device
Westchester, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA), the leading live and live‐online salvage auto auction company and wholly owned subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), today announced several improvements to its online offerings. The mobile version of www.iaai.com has been redesigned to offer an even easier way to search, bid, and buy vehicles. Additionally, the online vehicle search function has been dramatically improved by offering keyword search and refining options. Now it is even faster and easier for buyers to find hundreds of thousands of vehicles in inventory ready to be auctioned online and at one of the company’s 159 auction facilities throughout North America. As a result of these investments, IAA has seen a significant increase in the web traffic accessing their data through mobile devices as well as a rapid adoption of the new, enhanced search technology.
“Our investments into technology that positively impacts our customers’ experience will always be a top priority at IAA,” said Tom O’Brien, CEO. “As auctions continue to be the hub of the remarketing industry, we take great pride in providing buyers and providers the ability to find vehicles quickly and efficiently. Now with the latest technology, we have improved the capabilities for mobile devices and a more powerful vehicle search tool. Vehicles are up for auction every day and inventory is constantly changing. This smart technology empowers buyers to be as specific or as broad as they need in their vehicle search and they can access this technology however they choose. Today, we can connect the right buyer with the right vehicle even faster.”
Users search for and review vehicle inventory differently. The latest search technology allows both IAA’s mobile device site as well as the standard browser based site to provide immediate access to vehicle information that can make the difference in a buyer’s ability to understand the level of damage, location, or any other detail that is important to them. This information is critical to buyers who need remote access to information in order to make smart purchasing decisions. Searching for vehicles quickly is just as important to providers in order to get their information quickly.
To begin your vehicle search, simply go to www.iaai.com.
