LAS VEGAS — Manheim announced at last week's National Automobile Dealers Association 2016 convention plans to grow its network and inventory services — which span 113 physical, digital and mobiles sales in North America — in order to make it easier for dealers to access its auction network and services.

“Our growth plan is intentional, providing choices that meet the evolving needs of our national and local clients who require anytime and anywhere access,” said Janet Barnard, president of Manheim North America. “We believe offering a variety of traditional and new sales opportunities best positions us to support dealers’ growth, as well as serve clients in previously underserved markets.”

The company also has plans to open a new Manheim Cleveland site and to transition Go Auto Exchange sites to Manheim locations. Manheim also plans to invest in digital technology, noting that transactions were up more than 20% and that Manheim Simulcast experienced record growth. The latter allows buyers and sellers to participate in an auction online.

“No matter where or how clients choose to do business with us, we are committed to their success and developing new approaches in anticipation of their future needs,” Barnard said. “We pioneered this industry, and today continue to develop new and better ways to meet dealers’ business needs and help them succeed.”
