LONDON, ON, July 2, 2014 /CNW/ - CarProof, Canada's most trusted vehicle
history report provider, today announced the launch of CarProof RECON,
a groundbreaking new reconditioning tool, free to CarProof Dealer
CarProof RECON is an easy-to-use mobile, tablet and desktop tool for
dealers that uses the VIN to determine an accurate estimate of the
costs involved with reconditioning a vehicle. The reconditioning costs
are powered by the same database used by insurance companies and body
shops around North America for estimating damage repairs. CarProof
RECON delivers true and consistent reconditioning costs each and every
time while allowing dealers to customize things like labour rates to
CarProof RECON is an invaluable resource offered free to all CarProof
Dealer Members via the company's Dealer Benefits Program. The tool is
available in the Dealer Member's account and as a download on the app
store for Android and Apple devices.
"We know that when a customer brings a trade-in to a dealer, they often
have a misconception as to what their car is worth and why," says Shawn
Vording, Director of Product Management at CarProof. "RECON empowers
the dealer and will change the conversation around trade-ins. It's the
perfect tool to bridge the gap in understanding. The dealer will
calculate an accurate cost of the reconditioning needed to make the car
ready for resale and they can clearly communicate this to the customer
via RECON, a third-party, neutral tool."
RECON can also help the dealer educate the customer on damage that's
occurred to a vehicle. Using this tool, dealers can reverse-engineer
the damage to show the customer how the costs can add up, especially
given the difference in parts and repair costs between car brands.
As part of CarProof's commitment to be bilingual in everything the
company does, CarProof will be launching CarProof RECOND, the French
version of CarProof RECON, for French customers in the coming weeks.
