The NADAguides Powersports Connect is an online application that provides dealers not only 24/7 access to NADAguides pricing and detailed vehicle information, but also a platform to manage and market inventory. The app includes pricing and data for powersports model years 1997 through 2011 and provides rough trade-in, clean trade-in and used retail values for motorcycles, sidecars, trailers, sport and utility ATVs, snowmobiles and PWC. Connect helps dealers value, manage and market their inventory online using any PC, laptop or smartphone. The pricing data and vehicle details are automatically updated on a regular basis. For inventory management, dealers can input and save reference data for inventory, loans, applications and stock. For vehicle valuations, Connect automatically calculates values based on the vehicle, options and details selected, as well as any custom dealer add-on details entered. The calculations are organized on an itemized value report form that can be used and modified to print custom hang tags. The custom hang tag feature allows the dealer to insert its own logo, address, dealer specials and custom messaging. As an introductory offer for Connect, NADAguides is offering a one-year subscription for $140, which includes a print guidebook subscription.
