Software developer ATD Solutions has added Glass’s recently launched ‘GlassForecast’ valuation data to its multi-market vehicle valuation forecasting system AVS.
AVS provides vehicle finance companies, hire companies, retailers and fleet operators with a quick and easy way of bulk forecasting vehicle residual values and comparing different valuation scenarios.
It can incorporate valuation data from different suppliers, including Glass’s, CAP and Behr & Fess, and gives users the freedom to choose their preferred data supplier or to compare and contrast the views of multiple industry experts and include their own views as well.
ATD Solutions director Ashley Clark said: “We have worked closely with Glass’s for a number of years and right from the beginning AVS has been available for implementation together with Glass’s highly regarded current valuation data.
"Now we are very pleased to be able to offer AVS with even more valuations options since the launch of GlassForecast.
“A core strategy of AVS is ‘data independence’ and we are always keen make more data options available to our customers. If anyone wants to use AVS with data not currently supported we will always look to make the necessary enhancements through our own R&D.”
Dan Parnell, who heads up Glass’s fleet and finance sector said: “Launching GlassForecast has been an exciting step forward for Glass’s.
"GlassForecast has drawn on our wealth of data, detailed analysis and decades of experience to come up with a way of offering customers truly reliable benchmarking - for us it’s about using our expertise and opinion to provide really valuable insight.
“We are delighted ATD is giving its customers the opportunity to use GlassForecast data in AVS. It is more good news for us, coming just days after Auto Trader signed up to use our data across their platforms.”
