New Inventory+ from Dealertrack Combines Better Data and Leading Mobile Capabilities to Drive Higher Dealer Profits
NEW ORLEANS --(Business Wire)--
Dealertrack Technologies (Nasdaq:TRAK) today introduced Dealertrack
Inventory+, a new integrated inventory solution that combines the
best of Dealertrack's data driven inventory management offerings with
powerful new mobile and workflow accelerating innovations.
Dealertrack Inventory+ is enriched with advanced 360° data insight and
mobile capabilities. It transforms vehicle and market information into
increased trades, optimized turn rates and increased profit-per-day.
Delivering robust tools and analytics, Inventory+ covers dealers across
the entire lifecycle of the vehicle inventory process, including:
Stocking and Sourcing
"For several years, Dealertrack has delivered the most complete and
comprehensive transactional, listing and market information for used
vehicles, as well as the latest mobile innovations, in the industry,"
said Robert Granados, vice president and general manager, Inventory and
Interactive Solutions, Dealertrack. "Now, Inventory+ brings all of our

Inventory+: The Combination of Innovative
Workflow and Powerful Analytics
Dealertrack delivers new, improved and powerful workflows and analytics
with Inventory+. For example, the cornerstone of the Inventory+ solution
is the new Appraisal Workflow functionality. The Appraisal Workflow tool
expedites the appraisal process by creating a uniformed and totally
integrated workflow process for dealers.
Using a simplified, user-friendly five-step process, Appraisal Workflow
allows dealers to easily capture and input all key information, and
manage information, photographs, condition, book-out data and values of
vehicles in their inventory. Typically, when it comes to inventory
management and reporting, dealers focus on either profits or turns.
Inventory+ allows dealers to focus on both profits and turns for
positive results. With Dealertrack Inventory+, dealers can create a
simple and powerful metric - Profits-PerDayTM (PPD) - that
can help them better manage both turn and gross profits.
"Our profit-per-day metric, which is the single most important
measurement of total profitability, will allow dealers to keep a better
pulse on the health of their businesses, while keeping their dealership
stocked with the right mix of vehicles best suited for their
marketplace," said Granados.
Dealertrack will be showcasing its comprehensive set of automotive
retail solutions for dealers, lenders and OEMs, including Dealertrack
Inventory+, throughout NADA at Booth #2811 in New Orleans.
