During a panel discussion on multi-platform selling at Used Car Week this fall, GM Financial's Dan Heinrich expressed a concern.
said one of the hurdles to this type of online wholesaling gaining widespread traction in the remarketing business was inconsistency with condition reports.

In mid-January, Auto Auction Services Corp.
announced a new industry standard for vehicle condition data reporting - developed in partnership with Manheim - that is designed to foster consistency throughout the business.

, it would soon be providing AASC member auctions with Manheim's AutoGrade service, which aims to provide a consistent condition grading scale throughout the industry, regardless of platform, provider or location.
This was what the industry needed to help push this consistency, Heinrich
told Auto Remarketing
in a February interview.
"Until there was standardization around condition reports, you would have different condition reports on different platforms," Heinrich

sees it as a "big step" for the industry in that competitors are working together for something that that see as beneficial for all parties in the industry.
And the same thing is happening with multi-platform selling, as well.

"We've seen a tremendous shift in our product line over the past year with more late-model vehicles appearing in our lanes," said Dan Heinrich, vice president of Asset Remarketing.
"Our inventory is continuing to get better and better with more vehicles qualifying for our Gold and Silver Certified and Green Light programs.
However, as a company, I want to reiterate that we will still be running the same vehicles that we have in the past to ensure we have the right vehicles for every dealer.
Off-lease vehicles are also going to have a stronger presence in the auctions this year, Heinrich said.
