This panel took place on 27 April 2022. 

This panel of industry experts will discuss MOBI’s Dealer Floorplan Automation Pilot using Citopia vinTRAK and MOBI Trusted Trip.

Auditing and collateral verification of vehicles financed by dealers is a pain point for OEMs, bankers, and dealers alike.  Automating the trust and middleman services is a multi-hundred-million-dollar opportunity for the industry.

Our expert panel will show off the current pilot and vision for the future, including collateral and fleet management, more efficient securitization, and, ultimately, a healthier vehicle sales ecosystem.
