JCT 600 strikes up new data deal.
Automotive data experts cap hpi have announced a new partnership with JCT 600 to supply vehicle provenance and automotive data.
JCT 600 will now use a broad range of cap hpi data including HPI Check, NMR checks and NMR investigation plus all branded used car programme data.
HPI Check provides more than 80 valuable data points about the history of the car, including stolen car check, outstanding finance, insurance write-offs, mileage discrepancies, logbook check, valuations and scrapped car check.
The deal also includes access to Valuation Anywhere, cap hpi’s flagship web-based valuations tool for automotive sales professionals. Every day thousands of automotive businesses rely on this digital online tool to generate accurate valuations for cars, bikes and commercial vehicles, supporting their business decisions and gaining access to 62,000 car ID’s and mileage-adjusted valuations within seconds.
The move to use provenance and NMR data further consolidates the relationship between JCT 600 and cap hpi. The leading dealer group already uses cap hpi’s expansive automotive data set for vehicle valuations, helping it to effectively manage risk and increase profit across its network of showrooms and forecourts.
As one of the UK’s largest and most highly respected motor retailers, JCT 600 represents 21 of the world’s most iconic auto brands at 51 locations throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and the North East.
