– Manheim has launched Electronic Vehicle Purchase (eVP) 2.0, an updated version of its upstream remarketing service for fleet administrators and corporate fleet managers. eVP 2.0 can be customized to accommodate a variety of implementations. The service delivers new features based on feedback from its fleet administrator customers and employees purchasing corporate fleet vehicles.
eVP 2.0 accommodates not only fixed price offers, but also competitive bid auctions. Online administrative tools have been upgraded, providing a Web interface fleet administrators can use to manage the employee purchase program. In addition, vehicle data can be transmitted automatically in an electronic file, or a vehicle’s driver can manually enter vehicle data and upload photos.
Corporate employees can review additional content when looking at the company’s fleet vehicles, with upgraded search tools and the ability to compare multiple vehicles side-by-side. Employees also have access to vehicle history reports, comparison shopping tools, and finance and transportation options.
eVP 2.0 can seamlessly migrate no-sale vehicles to OVE.com, Manheim’s midstream selling service, for sale directly to more than 65,000 dealers nationwide. This allows fleet administrators access to both upstream and midstream remarketing channels.
