Glass’s identification data helps you keep track of your inventories so you always know which vehicles your products are installed in.

car residual value

Helping you help your customers

To truly help your customers save on fuel costs, reduce downtime, mileage, idling and inefficiencies, and increase driver safety, you need to know precisely what they are driving so you can fit the correct unit and software.

Our VIN look up service tells you exactly what optional extras are fitted to a vehicle, as soon as it leaves the factory. So you can make sure your customers’ fleet users are using cruise control efficiently, always have stop/start technology turned on, and are effectively using all safety features fitted to their vehicle.

vehicle value data

Fast and accurate VIN identification

Unlike other vehicle identification methods, such as VRM, VIN let’s you know a car’s configuration as soon as it rolls of the production line. That means you can be a step ahead when it comes to knowing what tracking units are needed, the correct software to install, and the speediest processes for installation.

Make accurate and competitive bids for telematics contracts by using VIN to be a step or two ahead of your competition.
