Vehicle Build Specifications at the 17-digit VIN

EpiAnalytics VINoptions is an automotive AI solution providing automotive OEMs, pricing evaluators, auction houses, and insurance and finance companies immediate access to Build Data (installed features, trim and package information) at the 17-digit VIN. 

The automotive world has always been a data-driven business and every vehicle has hundreds of pieces of information associated to a single Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Yet, even today, automotive businesses cannot determine what trim, features, packages, and options are on a particular vehicle. Until now!

Now OEMs, pricing evaluators, auction houses, and insurance and finance companies can turn to EpiAnalytics to get all the options, trim, and package information on a 17-digit VIN.
