RAA chooses Experian’s AutoCheck
Nottingham. UK, 30 March 2009 - The Retail Automotive Alliance Limited (RAA) has awarded a new three-year contract to Experian® for access to its Autocheck vehicle checking service. The RAA represents 22 independent motor dealer groups in the UK with a combined annual turnover of £2.5 billion and an expected 2009 stock turn of 103,000 vehicles
Experian was first appointed as the RAA’s supplier of provenance services in 2007.
When the contract came up for tender this year, the RAA, as part of its policy, reviewed products from other provenance service providers in the UK. On completing the review, the RAA’s shareholders unanimously chose to extend the contract with Experian for a further three years.
Marc Matthew, the RAA Chairman and also Chairman of Lifestyle Europe Limited, said: “We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Experian over the last two years, and our review of other provenance services showed that Experian’s continues to be the best choice in the marketplace. So much so, all of our members were unanimous in the decision to continue our relationship with Experian.”
Kirk Fletcher, Managing Director of Experian’s Automotive division, said: “We are delighted that Experian has once again received the RAA’s seal of approval. Provenance is an essential component for any used car business, and finding the most accurate and intuitive service in the industry is important. Being chosen by an alliance of 22 shareholders is further testament to the quality of our data and analytics products and services.”
