With a stable of tech tools for car dealers, giving them more trust and transparency across the buying and selling of vehicles starting with the most comprehensive and accurate inspection and vehicle valuation, ACV Auctions has hit a number of milestones in June, including:

  • 49,999 AMP™ (Audio Motor Profile) recordings recorded – An example of ACV’s commitment to the next-generation inspection and auction experience, AMP™ allows dealers to hear a clear audio clip of the engine in a better way than physically standing next to the vehicle.
  • 32,009 Virtual Lift™ scans – This lightweight, low profile device provides a full bumper-to-bumper image of the vehicle’s undercarriage in less than one minute, creating a never-before-seen look into a typically inaccessible view.
  • 3.42 Terabytes of data – With its comprehensive vehicle condition reports, the company amassed a record amount of data from the 40 – 50 high-res photos, AMP™ clips and Virtual Lift™ scans. Over the course of 30 busy days, inspectors gathered and uploaded 3.42 Terabytes of data so dealers had the most clear view into the vehicle’s condition.
