Auto dealers are now SYNC’d
TransUnion Auto Information Solutions, in partnership with Imarda Technologies SA, has introduced TU SYNC to South African auto dealers.
This self-powered tracking device combines wireless, real-time tracking with stock management and full integration into third-party back-end systems. With up-to-the-minute information on the location of their vehicles, dealers can proactively manage risk.
TransUnion Auto information solutions director, product development, Krisben Reddy, says as dealers stock a myriad of vehicles at a time, challenges of theft and vehicle tracking can arise.
“TU SYNC addresses these challenges by providing real-time tracking with alerts that can be customised and configured to suit the dealer’s needs,” Reddy adds. Furthermore, the device provides up-to-date stock profiles and aids in improving efficiency through its automated stock-control process.
With the use of GPS and its cloud-based solution, TU SYNC allows dealers to customise their tracking system. Test-drive parameters can be set, for example.
As a wireless system, TU SYNC can be installed in just 90 minutes. Since units are not hardwired into vehicles, they can be removed and reused; enabling the dealer to rotate devices when their vehicles are sold or replaced.
Dealers can also sell the units to the buyer who can, in turn, leverage off TransUnion’s cost-effective consumer vehicle tracking service, TU SYNC MyCar.
