LAS VEGAS, NADA CONVENTION BOOTH # 4321, January 31, 2004 - Kelley Blue Book is showcasing the newest version of its flagship dealer software product 'New KARPOWER' at the 2004 NADA Convention. In an ongoing effort to provide dealers with cost-effective used vehicle marketing solutions, Kelley Blue Book has enhanced KARPOWER with several new features, most notably the addition of trade-in values and quick access to CARFAX Vehicle History Reports.
"It's our goal to partner with well-respected companies and integrate services into KARPOWER that dealers are already using in an effort to simplify the used car merchandising process," said Stephen Henson, executive vice president, sales and marketing. "With these new enhancements, dealers can now find the two most valuable pieces of used car information within KARPOWER-- its value and its history."
With CARFAX being included in KARPOWER, dealers have one more way to access and use vehicle history information to build consumer confidence in the cars they sell.
"The convenient new feature in New KARPOWER allows me to quickly run CARFAX Vehicle History Reports on my inventory, saving me time and boosting the confidence of potential buyers," said Jennifer Lees, Used Vehicle Inventory Manager, Polar Chevrolet, White Bear Lake, MN.
