MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Canada--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Leveraging the best of its data driven inventory management offerings, Dealertrack Canada, part of Dealertrack Technologies (Nasdaq: TRAK), today introduced Inventory+, an advanced inventory management tool with powerful 3600 market insight, new mobile capability and workflow accelerating innovations.

Dealertrack Inventory+, which combines the power of its Tradetracker, AAX and eCarList offerings, transforms vehicle and market information into increased trades, optimized turn rates and increased profits-per-day. Delivering robust tools and analytics, Inventory+ covers dealers across the entire lifecycle of the vehicle inventory process, including:

  • Appraising
  • Stocking and Sourcing
  • Pricing
  • Marketing and Merchandising
  • Reporting
  • Mobile Application
  • Group Solutions
  • Dealer Results Management

"For years, Dealertrack has delivered proven inventory solutions that help dealerships increase the efficiency and profitability of used car operations,” said Michael McCarthy, general manager, Dealertrack Canada. “Inventory+ is going to be a game-changer for Canadian dealers. This new inventory management solution brings all the powerful capabilities of our previous offerings together, along with new innovations, to help drive optimal and measureable results for our dealer and dealer group clients.”

Inventory+: The Combination of Innovative Workflow and Powerful Analytics

Dealertrack delivers new, improved and powerful workflows and analytics with Inventory+. For example, the cornerstone of the Inventory+ solution is the new Appraisal Workflow functionality. The Appraisal Workflow tool expedites the appraisal process by creating a uniformed and totally integrated workflow process for dealers.

Using a simplified, user-friendly seven-step process, Appraisal Workflow allows dealers to easily capture, input and manage all key information, including legal disclosures, photographs, reconditioning information, ACV Tracker, book-out data and values of vehicles in their inventory. Typically, when it comes to inventory management and reporting, dealers focus on either profits or turns. Inventory+ allows dealers to focus on both profits and turns for positive results. With Dealertrack Inventory+, dealers can create a simple and powerful metric - Profits-Per-DayTM (PPD) - that can help them better manage both turn and gross profits.

Dealertrack will be showcasing Inventory+ at NADA 2015 at Booth 2219S.
