(NYSE: KAR), today announced the launch of Mobile CSAToday®, a tailored Web site that offers access to key tools and features via any Web-capable phone.

“We have been excited about Mobile CSAToday® from the very start.

The following describes what customers can expect with mobile access and the power of information IAA Mobile CSAToday® features so they can manage their salvage more efficiently.

• Perform vehicle searches and inquiries for a vehicle located at any of IAA’s more than 150 branch locations throughout North America using a stock, claim, or policy number, as well as VIN or owner’s name
• Provide real-time information which enhances communication amongst all parties by offering visibility to vehicle status, notes, storage and inventory location, photos, and more
• Search a vehicle’s Average Salvage Value (ASV) from IAA’s comprehensive warehouse of salvage auction data
• Set or update minimum bids
• Manage I-Buy Fast vehicles enabling IAA’s buyers to purchase vehicles between auction dates
