AuctionACCESS Integrates New System With Manheim

Tue Jul 26, 2016

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – AuctionACCESS continues to expand its floor plan platform by successfully integrating with Manheim. This integration will enable participating lenders to centralize and automate the transmission of credit availability to Manheim locations through AuctionACCESS. In addition, Manheim auctions can electronically transmit floor plan loan originations to participating lenders.

“We are thrilled to partner with Manheim on our floor plan platform,” AuctionACCESS Vice President of Business Development Charlie Adams says. “This integration makes it easier for both dealers and wholesale lenders to transact business at Manheim locations.”

"Manheim continues to implement innovative ways to improve the customer experience at our locations,” Manheim Senior Vice President of Client Experience Doug Keim says. “The AuctionACCESS platform will create a more efficient lending and purchasing process for our dealer and finance partners.”

AuctionACCESS works with wholesale lenders throughout the United States to centralize and automate the transmission of data necessary to floor inventory at physical and online auctions. AuctionACCESS continues to grow the number of lenders and auction locations that are integrated with this platform and is committed to creating a standard process for all its subscribing auctions to securely and efficiently communicate floor plan transactions.

AuctionACCESS has been partnered with Manheim for several years. However, the company began its new integration process three or four years ago and Manheim has decided to jump aboard.

“The AuctionACCESS floor plan platform centralizes and automates what was once a very manual process for lenders and auctions," Adams says. "Floor plan availability and loan origination data is automated between the lender and auction through AuctionACCESS, enabling a dealer’s credit availability with participating lenders to be part of his credentialing record. In addition, auctions have a centralized portal to automate the loan originations to the appropriate lender at the click of a button.”
