Manheim Expands LotVision Nationwide

By Staff Writer July 13, 2021

In the past year, Manheim has expanded LotVision to include over half of all locations nationwide, enabling more clients to find their cars faster, while saving time and enjoying greater efficiencies. The technology is on track to be fully deployed by Sept. 30 to all remaining sites, minus a handful of sites that don’t compel the need for this tool.   

LotVision is a wireless tracking device placed in a vehicle that helps dealers and transporters accurately locate their vehicles on auction lots to within 10 feet. In addition to location tracking, Manheim recently partnered with Cox2M, the commercial IoT business line within Cox Communications, to launch a pilot program at Manheim Atlanta and Manheim Dallas that offers enhanced capabilities, such as accessing certain types of vehicle data via diagnostic trouble codes and battery health information. The pilot is expected to run through early September, with this added information available to clients before year’s end.   

“From the beginning, we envisioned expanding this technology beyond simply vehicle tracking to include accessing valuable data such as battery health and select vehicle diagnostics,” said Bob Grounds, Manheim AVP of operational excellence.

LotVision offers tracking capabilities for roughly 90% of Manheim’s vehicle inventory. During this past year’s record winter storms, the technology played a significant role, as snow-piled vehicles that were equipped with the technology no longer required VIN scanning.
