PM Attendant Adds Carfax QuickVIN to Shop Management Software

EDMOND, Ok. (October 28, 2010) - PM Attendant has upgraded its shop management system (SMS) with Carfax QuickVIN. Users now can retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers' cars by entering only the license plate information. The new tool is available free with the latest version of PM Attendant's online software.

"PM Attendant with Carfax QuickVIN is a perfect fit for us," said Sara Cooke, business systems specialist at The Lube Center in Maryland. "We're operating much more efficiently than before. Everything we need to capture the customer's information to make sure we're using the correct equipment is built right into the software. Our techs can start working on cars sooner, which gets the customer in and out faster."

Eight out of ten SMS users would prefer to have Carfax QuickVIN available with their current system, according to a recent independent study. PM Attendant is one of the first providers to include Carfax QuickVIN with their software.

"Carfax QuickVIN is one of the most powerful upgrades that PM Attendant has made in its nine year history," said Ricardo Colon, president of PM Attendant, Inc. "It gives the shop an extremely fast and efficient way to enter the VIN into their PM Attendant system and begin working on a vehicle. As the system is used, eventually all the vehicles in the shop's database will be tied to a VIN. All of this at no cost for the QuickVIN feature."

PM Attendant subscribers using Carfax QuickVIN also have their service records turned into free advertising on Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Shop name and contact information appears alongside each service record on the Carfax Report, reaching millions of potential customers that use Carfax.
