November 13, 2012

Alpharetta, Ga. – DataScan Field Services, one of the largest floorplan inventory verification and vehicle inspection companies in the automotive industry, has been selected as the exclusive provider of pre-termination and post-termination lease inspections for GM Financial. DataScan’s technology-driven inspection services offer the captive finance company greater efficiency and a more streamlined experience for both dealers and consumers alike.

DataScan leverages its highly qualified associates and technology solutions to help clients interact proactively with their lessees throughout the lease termination process. DataScan’s inspection results provide the finance company and GM dealers with the opportunity to improve lessee retention.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to offer the expertise and technology GM Financial is looking for to empower its dealers while keeping customers informed throughout the end-of-lease process,” said Brent Sergot, vice president and general manager, DataScan.

In addition to enhancing the dealer-customer relationship, the DataScan inspection reports are extremely valuable in the remarketing business. These reports, trusted and recognized industry-wide, allow companies to more effectively market off-lease vehicles for sale through selected upstream auction venues.

“DataScan provides state-of-the-art services specifically tailored to our needs and the needs of our dealer partners,” said Dan Heinrich, Vice President Asset Remarketing, GM Financial. “With DataScan’s assistance, GM Financial can now offer an efficient and technology-driven end-of-lease process for our dealer partners.”
