Wholesale Hub Added to VAuto Provision 

By Staff Writer October 11, 2021

The company vAuto announces the addition of Wholesale Hub, a new feature within vAuto Provision. Wholesale Hub synchronizes and streamlines the vAuto Provision wholesale workflow to several Manheim channels including Manheim.com and OVE, Manheim in-lane sales and Manheim Express. The solution will be launching first for vehicles to be sent to the Manheim Express Concierge team, followed by Manheim’s other channels later in the year.

 Capitalizing on the rising interest and profitability of used cars, vAuto offers Wholesale Hub to support dealerships during a predicted unseasonable slowing sales period. Wholesale efficiency is critical as dealers move into Q4 facing continued inventory challenges and sales roadblocks.

 “Wholesale Hub creates efficiencies in the wholesale vehicle disposal process,” says Derek Hansen, a vice president of wholesale operations for vAuto. “It helps Provision dealers save time, reduce time-to-sell and maximize profits by streamlining processes that find inventory marked for wholesale, send inventory to auction, and track wholesale inventory from within Provision. These gains in efficiency equate to real advantages given current industry challenges.”

With Wholesale Hub improving their workflow, dealerships can now list cars through Manheim in ‘bulk’ in the same time that it used to take to process one vehicle. This makes it faster and easier to get their vehicles into Manheim’s wholesale marketplace—whether those vehicles will be sold from the dealers’ lots or on site at a Manheim location. For vehicles sent to a Manheim location, dealers can move their vehicles effortlessly through every step of the wholesale process with Manheim’s connected, intuitive marketplace.

 For offsite vehicles, dealers can designate a car as wholesale and choose Manheim Express for their wholesale option. A trained Manheim specialist will then go to the dealer’s lot, inspect the vehicle, cover it with an Inspection Guarantee and enable the vehicle to be listed on Manheim Express, Manheim.com and OVE simultaneously. They can then track the vehicle’s status in Wholesale Hub. vAuto plans to make Wholesale Hub available to other auction marketplaces later this year.
