Audatex North America Adds GM, Nissan, Infiniti and Jaguar Land Rover to List
of Global Vehicle Brands Supported by AudaVIN™
AudaVIN Vehicle Identification Technology Integrates Vehicle-Specific
Information into Estimating Platform for More Accurate Collision Damage
Estimates and Faster, More Efficient Claims Settlements
SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Audatex North America, Inc. (Audatex),
a wholly owned subsidiary of Solera Holdings, Inc., the leading global claims
solutions provider serving the automotive industry, today announced it has
signed new agreements to add GM, Nissan, Infiniti and Jaguar Land Rover to the
growing list of global vehicle brands supported in the U.S. by its AudaVIN
vehicle identification technology.
The GM makes that are being released for AudaVIN include Cadillac, GMC,
Chevrolet, Saturn, Saab, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Isuzu, giving Audatex
customers access to more than 64 million GM vehicle identification numbers
(VINs) to drive more accurate collision damage estimates and faster, more
efficient claims settlements.
"With the addition of these industry-leading manufacturers, Audatex continues
to build momentum with AudaVIN as we continue to give our insurance and
collision repair partners a stronger competitive edge in the market, and all
the technology tools they need to increase estimating accuracy, expedite
claims settlements, and drive higher levels of customer satisfaction," said
Wolfgang Ahrens, Managing Director of Audatex North America.
AudaVIN utilizes VIN data to give insurance claim representatives, appraisers
and collision repair estimators complete vehicle-specific information, as
recorded by manufacturers on the production line. The AudaVIN software is the
only vehicle identification technology on the market to avail and integrate
this information into the estimating platform. Everything from exterior paint
and interior trim data, to the vehicle's make, model, edition, production
date, standard equipment, factory-installed options, and engine and
transmission details is included.
By identifying the more complex regular production options (RPOs) and packages
on the vehicle, AudaVIN goes beyond existing VIN decode technologies to
provide complete and accurate vehicle-specific information in seconds. The
result is significant reduction in inspection time, more accurate parts
identification, more precise damage estimates and total loss valuations, and
improvements in first call settlement rates.
"AudaVIN addresses consumers' top concerns regarding errors made during the
claims settlement process by uncovering options and packages that, if
overlooked, can reduce a vehicle's perceived actual cash value (ACV) by
hundreds or even thousands of dollars," Ahrens added.
Featuring automatic or one-click VIN decoding, AudaVIN is fully integrated
with Audatex estimating and valuation solutions and services -- including
AudaNet Xpert Estimating™ and AudaNet Xpert Autosource^® – to provide claim
handlers, appraisers and estimators a streamlined vehicle identification
AudaVIN now supports more than 28 brands globally, including Mercedes-Benz,
BMW, Mini, Smart, Volkswagen, Volvo, Audi, Porsche – and now GM, Nissan,
Infiniti and Jaguar Land Rover. For more information, visit
