IAA Launches Comprehensive Fast Search Tool

WESTCHESTER, Ill., April 12, 2017 – Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA) today announced the launch of IAA Fast Search™, the salvage vehicle industry’s most comprehensive search tool. With over 30 vehicle search and filter options, IAA Fast Search™ provides vehicle buyers with a smart, mobile-friendly tool that delivers more efficient and more accurate search results. The innovative Fast Search functionality complements the recently announced enhancements to IAA’s Vehicle Details™ feature on Together, these launches help advance IAA’s strategy to deliver increased customer value through technology and innovation.

“IAA is committed to continuously improving and simplifying the buyer experience,” said John Kett, CEO and president of IAA. “Fast Search reduces the time-intensive task of sourcing specific vehicles by enabling buyers to search with both speed and precision. This ultimately helps them bid and buy with greater knowledge, confidence and convenience.”

Additional functionality of the Fast Search technology, which is available on desktop and mobile devices, allows buyers to recall previous searches and quickly pick up where they left off. Buyers can also easily add or remove filters, such as odometer reading, vehicle type or loss type, to refine or expand results at any point during a search. 

“We know time and efficiency are highly valued commodities for our buyers,” said Jeanene O’Brien, senior vice president of global marketing. “So we built them a comprehensive and intuitive search tool to help them make better informed decisions more quickly. Fast Search and our growing suite of customer tools, resources and technology help IAA deliver an unmatched buying experience.”

As an industry leader in technology and innovation, IAA has announced 27 new tools and enhancements since January 2010 that anticipate and address the needs of salvage buyers and sellers. The company was the first to invest beyond the physical auction and provide sellers with technology solutions that decrease cycle time, increase customer satisfaction and help manage costs. In 2010, IAA introduced CSAToday®, the salvage industry’s first mobile seller vehicle inventory management tool, followed by the 2011 release of the first live bidding app for Apple and Android. In 2013, IAA’s Market Value™ tool became the first salvage vehicle value tool app released for iPhones. In 2015, IAA released the IAA Total Loss Solutions® suite of products, which has since been supplemented with seven additional customer tools and enhancements. Last month, the company launched its enhanced IAA Vehicle Details™ page, which provides buyers instant access to an industry-leading 320 VIN attributes on any vehicle.
