GDS teams up with carweb

Garage Data Systems has appointed carweb as its primary supplier of vehicle registration (VRM) lookup data.

Beverley-based Garage Data Systems launched in 2006 to provide low cost, easy to use business software for professionals in the motor trade. Since inception, Garage Data Systems has installed its workshop manager systems in over 1800 workshops across the UK and Ireland.

Garage Data Systems which checks around 40,000 vehicles a month chose carweb for its comprehensive data coverage.

Paul Setterfield, managing director of Garage Data Systems added, ‘One of the main reasons we chose to appoint carweb is the greater access to more vehicle data than other suppliers have been able to deliver. carweb have provided data to us which has not previously been available to us and this makes a big difference. Data accuracy is hugely important to us as a business and is the foundation of the service we provide to our customers across the UK and Ireland.’

carweb, part of Solera, provides continually updated data to the automotive sector ensuring VRM lookup remains accurate and covers all UK registered vehicles.

Commented Bally Bhamra, key account manager at carweb, ‘The carweb team assists over a thousand customers across the UK with VRM lookup and broader data services. We are pleased to welcome GDS as a customer and look forward to working closely with them. The decision to appoint carweb is a testament to our ongoing demonstration of adding value for our customers and underpins carweb’s position as a leading VRM lookup product.’
