G3 Remarketing launches advanced vehicle, audio video inspection tool
has launched a new mobile inspection and asset management application - AVID -
to satisfy the changing demands of the market.
Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) technology, the vehicle appraisal
system has been purposefully created following 18 months of in-house technical
development and £150,000 of investment.
Claimed to be
the first of its kind to include video, audio descriptions and HD images, AVID
has also been designed so that it is fully configurable. What’s more G3’s joint
director Matt Dale claims the application will now set the “auction industry
reason for the bespoke build, he said: “For many years, we’ve been utilising a
regimented inspection tool. However, as clients’ requirements have continued to
change, we’ve increasingly struggled to find anything that truly serviced the
needs of the industry and therefore our business. So, after six months of
market research we decided to expand our mobile development team and create a
unique application ourselves.”
The new G3 app
allows inspectors to capture a more accurate assessment of a car’s true
condition, using more than 20 vehicle-specific ‘splats’. Instead of providing a
‘one size fits all’ solution, the system’s grading and pricing criteria can be

buyers still remains of paramount importance to our business. This new
inspection tool will substantially enhance that experience for both vendors and
The launch of
AVID marks the first in a series of mobile technology releases from the G3
brand. The company is in the process of rolling out a full suite of asset
management apps - for both internal and third party use - with the next product
due to be unveiled later this month.
Mr Dale said:
“Our new field valuation tool has recently been launched allowing licensed
users to request instant valuations, obtain fixed underwrites and schedule
collections for disposal. Our site stock management app with Near Field
Communication (NFC) will also follow this summer. Together, these feature-rich
tools will provide a comprehensive alternative to less accommodating systems
within the remarketing arena.”
All of G3’s
mobile applications will be fully stage-integrated into the company’s new-look
website, which is due to go live in April. AVID will also be rolled out to
field-based collection agents over the coming six months.
concluded: “We’ve developed the apps so that, with the help of web APIs and third
party licensing agreements, they can be used as entirely standalone services.
It’s all part of our commitment to driving up standards in this sector.”
