AutoScout24.nl partners with auto info app Finnik
01 Aug 2017
The move follows in the footsteps of a competitor site AutoTrack.nl, which partnered with a U.S.-based vehicle-history service Carfax in October 2015 (we reported here).
Amsterdam-based Finnik offers basic vehicle information, such as its technical specifications and history, but also offers premium services, including information on previous owners, previously done reparations, stats based on brand, model, and auto type.
Finnik is a subsidiary of VWE Automotive, a marketing, data and admin services provider to Dutch auto dealers.
The collaboration between AutoScout24 and Finnik is expected to support buyers and sellers in their online searches and transactions. When consumers request a car report via Finnik, they are linked to the AutoScout24 site. Thanks to the cooperation, users can now check the status of cars – and then buy them right there.
The Finnik app (launched by VWE in 2015) also enables auto owners to order stickers of environmental friendliness of their vehicles, valid for several countries of Europe, particularly Germany. Finnik also validates mileage and offers a whole host of other information.
Every month, three million car reports are downloaded via Finnik, of which 95 percent are done via the app.
Finnik has two million app downloads, 850,000 active users and it generates more than 38 million car reports per year.
