  • NAAA Honors Phoenix Auction

    Metro Auto Auction of Phoenix has been named the National Auto Auction Association's 2017 Western Chapter Auto Auction of the Year for its outstanding public service. The Phoenix business was chosen for its commitment to making a difference in the lives of the community's youth, which includes mentoring at-risk high school students and creating a winter wonderland of real snow to host a Christmas party for seriously ill children.
    Both of these local children's nonprofit groups have been "adopted" by the auction as its primary philanthropic activities.
    The auction will be one of four finalists representing NAAA's Eastern, Midwest, Southern and Western chapters competing for the top honor of NAAA's Auto Auction of the Year Award for Excellence in Community Service.

  • Manheim Upgrades MMR

    Manheim introduced a sweeping set of enhancements to its Manheim Market Report (MMR).
    Adjusted MMR is a more specific valuation because it includes a vehicle's specific AutoGrade condition and exterior color, in addition to vehicle mileage and region. With this enhancement, clients can manually input a vehicle's specific condition, color, mileage, and region to get the Adjusted MMR.
    In a September update, the mileage, color, and condition will automatically display and clients can manually select region (based on preference) to get the Adjusted MMR. Adjusted MMR delivers a more accurate vehicle valuation to both buyers and sellers, which drives greater confidence to transact online.
    Available across desktop, tablet and mobile devices, the new MMR experience provides insight into how each vehicle-specific adjustment affects its MMR value, and facilitates more transparent pricing using data visualizations that allow clients to quickly compare their vehicle's Adjusted MMR value to the Base MMR value at-a-glance.
    The all-new API provides on-demand access to the more-accurate Adjusted MMR values, and also takes advantage of OEM Build Data in the VIN-decoding process, providing convenience and strategic insights to clients with high volumes.
