Lot Vision Includes Tracking

By Staff Writer June 30, 2020

Introduced last year by Manheim, Lot Vision is a GPS-based wireless device that is placed in a vehicle’s on-board diagnostic port and reports its whereabouts on a Manheim lot within ten feet. Recently, the technology was enhanced to include vehicle tracking by VIN and work order number.

“Our lots are full right now, and dealers who are previewing vehicles tell us that Lot Vision is helping them find vehicles in minutes versus hours,” said Patrick Brennan, SVP, marketplace. “Our goal is to extend this technology to all locations and continue to make improvements to enhance our client’s experience.”

Dealers and transporters simply input a work order number or VIN and activate “Location Services” on a smart phone or tablet to pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location and path to find it. For vehicles without an on-board diagnostic port, trackers are attached to the steering wheel. In addition to making it easier to find vehicles, Lot Vision also speeds up vehicle processing for transporters.   

Lot Vision is now in place at Manheim Atlanta, Manheim Georgia, Manheim Dallas, Manheim Dallas-Fort Worth, Manheim San Antonio, Manheim Orlando, Manheim Palm Beach, Manheim Tampa, Manheim Central Florida, Manheim St. Pete, Manheim Lakeland, Manheim Ft. Lauderdale, Manheim Ohio and Manheim Chicago, the latest location to be deployed this month.

Dealer clients are now implementing this solution at dealerships, as Lot Vision’s valued technology extends beyond Manheim lots. It is empowering dealers with the ability to track inventory on multiple lots and get vehicle status insights remotely when lot access is limited.  Other clients interested in this solution can work directly with Cox2M.
