Announcement from DataOne

DataOne Software, a Dominion Enterprises company and a leading provider of automotive data and software solutions, announced a collaboration with Ford Motor Company to offer Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury build data within DataOne’s VIN Decoder API web service. This enhanced data will enable customers to accurately identify and describe all Ford inventory by VIN from model year 2011 to current.

“We are extremely pleased to announce our data collaboration with Ford, which represents a large portion of the U.S. new vehicle market,” said Jacob Maki, president of DataOne Software. “As an Authorized Ford Data Distributor, this exciting relationship expands our OEM build data market coverage allowing us to provide more ways to assist our customers and their wide range of business use cases by identifying not only the vehicles themselves, but all of their valuable installed equipment as well.”

Build data includes precise vehicle details from the time a vehicle was manufactured and links those details to the vehicle’s unique 17-digit VIN. This includes vehicle data that typically can’t be identified using the VIN pattern alone, such as the installed transmission, exterior and interior color, as well as other factory-installed equipment.

“Our customers value our ability to provide accurate and timely VIN decoding in a standard format across all brands. We’re excited to continue enabling our customers’ success through the addition of precise decoding down to exact trim, transmission, color, and installed optional equipment for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury.”
