ADESA Touts Inspection Tech

By Staff Writer January 26, 2021

ADESA has announced advanced inspection capabilities, delivering consistency and confidence throughout the wholesale buyer and seller experience. ADESA’s new software platform powers high quality, industry-leading inspections that make significant leaps in transparency, relevance, accuracy and speed.

“The most important element for the digital transformation of our industry is the condition report—the ability to emulate that in-lane tire kicking through a virtual format,” said Srisu Subrahmanyam, chief operating officer of ADESA. “So, we’re investing heavily in enhanced digital inspection tools to support a more consistent experience and give dealers the confidence and peace of mind they need when purchasing vehicles through digital channels. Everyone benefits—sellers can access information faster to make smarter reconditioning choices, and buyers will have high resolution images and inspection details to make the most informed bidding decision.”

ADESA’s new inspection platform enables on-site vehicle inspectors with an advanced, hand-held, phone-based technology and a fine-tuned software application to capture more precise and complete vehicle information. Inspections will include higher-quality and higher-resolution photos to enhance vehicle condition reports. With a more intuitive design, inspectors can complete each inspection more accurately and consistently, presenting the vehicle for sale with the most relevant and meaningful information to potential buyers. ADESA has rolled out its new inspection capabilities across all U.S. locations, and anticipates completing onboarding of its Canada locations in the first quarter of 2021.

“By aligning resources, including personnel, technology and data from across KAR, we’re optimizing and streamlining the entire inspections process for our customers. Buyers and sellers alike will have more data, faster, to make intelligent decisions and drive greater success,” said Richard Carpentier, head of inspection solutions at KAR Global and COO and SVP of operations for AutoVIN.
