PORTLAND, OR - January 30, 2008
- Chrome Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of DealerTrack Holdings, Inc. and an industry leader in collecting, enhancing, and distributing best-in-class automotive data, today announced that AutoRevo.com, provider of a complete online vehicle marketing system for automotive dealerships, will use Chrome's ADS (Automotive Description Service) web service to decode VINs for detailed, comprehensive online vehicle advertisements to drive more online traffic and leads.
With Chrome's ADS, dealers using AutoRevo.com can enter a VIN and within seconds receive complete vehicle data and a Chrome StyleID, a proprietary value assigned to a particular vehicle, which makes it easy to map options and create detailed descriptions. AutoRevo.com then pushes a dealer's inventory to eBay Motors and any other automotive shopping sites the dealer chooses. Along with automatic export of vehicle inventory and photos to online shopping websites, the AutoRevo.com complete online vehicle marketing system includes: custom dealer websites, eBay Motors local market and national integration, comprehensive lead management tools, and custom window stickers and buyers guides.
"Chrome ADS is giving us an unmatched competitive advantage in the marketplace," says Chad Polk, President of AutoRevo.com. "Chrome delivers detailed descriptions fast, and their Chrome StyleID gives us the flexibility to easily map options. Using the Chrome system, our dealers can load a VIN, map to options, and quickly get a vehicle into the AutoRevo.com system. We believe the speed, data breadth, and flexibility of use makes Chrome's ADS indispensable to our business."
