London, ON, September 10, 2021 – AutoVerify is pleased to announce the acquisition of AIM Experts Inc. The merger of these two automotive technology leaders will allow AutoVerify to better achieve the goal of taking the stress out of buying and owning a vehicle for consumers. This acquisition will help solve dealer pain end-to-end by integrating AIM’s impressive inventory management and automated content solutions into the AutoVerify product offering.
Founded in 2012, AIM brings a depth of industry experience that perfectly complements the AutoVerify team. AIM has operated with a mission to simplify the marketing of new and used vehicles through automation and innovation, building a dealership inventory merchandising platform that is used by approximately 400 automotive dealers.
This acquisition comes at a time when AutoVerify is focused on helping auto dealers adjust to the post-Covid environment of remote vehicle research and sales. This acquisition will allow dealers to better display, market and merchandise vehicles right from their vehicle details pages. By integrating the products provided by AIM into the AutoVerify Digital Retailing Suite, auto dealers will be better equipped to highlight the features that differentiate their vehicles from the vehicles sitting on competitor lots, while providing an opportunity for dealers to introduce and explain finance and insurance offerings at a time when Covid-initiated changes are creating inventory challenges and limiting showroom traffic and opportunities for face-to-face sales.
“We are very excited to welcome AIM to the AutoVerify family. We have been watching this company for quite some time, and have been steadily impressed by their development and marketing of solutions that will help our dealer customers succeed at this time of great industry transition,” say AutoVerify founders Marty Meadows, James Hayes, David Brebner and Brad Hanebury. “Combining the product offerings, talent and experience at AIM experts with our already best-in-class products and team at AutoVerify will amplify our ability to solve pain felt by automotive dealers and enter the US market with a more vertically-integrated solution.”
“I couldn’t be more pleased to see the products and talents we have developed at AIM combine with those at AutoVerify,” says Rick Balkan, CEO at AIM. “I am confident that the work we have done to create a top quality digital platform will be nurtured and developed by this exceptional team, and integrate beautifully to provide a best-in-class, end-to-end solution that will help our dealer customers adapt and thrive in the new, highly-digital way that dealers will be operating moving forward.”
