REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 7, 2015 — SHIFTMobility has teamed with Carfax to improve its ShopLite™ mobile solution by becoming part of myCarfax®. The ShopLite mobile app now includes Carfax® QuickVIN™ so independent repair centers can check-in customers and retrieve vehicle information by keying in the license plate number and state. ShopLite Premium users get the added benefit of simply snapping a photo of the license plate to initiate the check-in process.
‘We are pleased to partner with Carfax to incorporate real-time integration for license plate information lookup,’ said Arvind Jain, SHIFTMobility President. ‘Using the industry’s first license plate scan and decode feature through ShopLite Premium, shop owners will have sophisticated vehicle knowledge, quicker estimates and faster diagnoses of vehicle issues.’
ShopLite is a fully mobile shop management solution that helps shop owners and technicians handle everything from customer and supplier relationships to getting parts inventory and price lists. The addition of Carfax QuickVIN quickly displays the vehicle identification number (VIN), vehicle engine information and year/make/model details within ShopLite. Vehicle processing time is reduced, helping users increase car count, avoid parts-ordering errors, and make the best service and repair recommendations to their customers.
The Carfax enhancements within ShopLite are available to myCarfax Service Shops. Enrollment in myCarfax is free. With this partnership, SHIFTMobility joins over 33,000 software providers and service and repair locations that are myCarfax Service Shops.
