General Release Will Launch Next Quarter

Westchester, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., the leading hybrid model salvage auto auction company, today announced a beta release of Mobile CSAToday®, a tailored Web site that offers access to key tools and features via any Web‐capable phone. This new product supports IAA’s vehicle provider customers who demand the freedom of mobility and the power to access their information quickly.

“As a technology leader, IAA has a history of being nimble and moving forward with creative solutions so that our vehicle provider customers can better manage their businesses,” said Tom O’Brien, CEO. “This was a collaborative effort with our provider customers who are naturally on‐the‐go. We believe this is just the beginning for IAA to introduce mobile solutions that connect people, data, and technology in the auto salvage industry.” O’Brien stated.

Next quarter, IAA plans to launch Mobile CSAToday to provider customers and offer the following:

  • Vehicle searches and inquiries at any of IAA’s more than 150 facilities throughout North America
  • Real‐time data that will enhance communication among all parties by offering vehicle notes visibility and access
  • Average salvage value (ASV) queries from IAA’s comprehensive warehouse of salvage auction data
  • VIN decoding capabilities for any type of automobile
  • Ability to locate IAA branch offices and storage locations easily

At the heart of Insurance Auto Auctions is a passion to listen to its customers and offer technology that further streamlines how they run their business. With the general release of Mobile CSA Today set for next quarter, IAA provider customers will ultimately have the freedom to choose a mobile solution and access information that they need to enhance the claims experience for their customers and reduce claims cycle time.
