MaddenCo Partners With CARFAX

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (Sept. 18, 2013) -- MaddenCo, one of the leading integrated software providers for the tire industry, has partnered with Carfax to further improve its customer experience. As part of the partnership, MaddenCo's Tire Dealer System now includes Carfax® QuickVIN™. Users can retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers' vehicles quicker and easier by entering only the license plate information.

"I expect that our customers will find Carfax QuickVIN to be a real asset at the point-of-sale counter," says Jay Adams, President of MaddenCo.

MaddenCo joins more than 27,000 service locations and software providers as a member of the Carfax Service Network. MaddenCo and its customers can take advantage of the no-cost Carfax QuickVIN tool to help eliminate the risk of costly data entry errors and ensure they order properly-fitting parts.

Carfax Service Network members also are automatically enrolled in the Carfax Service Loyalty Program. Participating shops are featured in the new myCarfax app and other Carfax products that help increase service business and reach new customers.
