ATLANTA, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Auto Data Inc., one of the leading software and data providers for the quick lube industry, 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.
"The Carfax QuickVIN feature is a handy tool for our customers without a VIN scanner or for the older vehicles that do not have a VIN barcode," said Craig Harris, national sales manager at Auto Data. "Carfax QuickVIN has made capturing VINs easy and accurate so our shops can help customers more efficiently."
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.
