USVINData.com Data Suggests an Upturn in Used Vehicle Sales

MAR VISTA, Calif. -- Since the pandemic began, a year ago, searches on leading vehicle records site, USVINData.com have fallen as the used car sales market has fallen away but the latest figures show a rise in searches which is good news for used vehicle sellers.

When the pandemic and associated restrictions hit in March 2020, searches on USVINData.com fell by over 70%, and although they began to rise again throughout the year, they didn't get back to 2019 levels. This has broadly reflected trends seen across the used vehicles sales industry.

Since the start of 2021, USVINData.com has seen vehicle searches on the site rise month by month and returning to almost pre-pandemic levels in the last report. This rise is forecasted to continue and rise to around 20% above pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2021. This trend is expected to be followed by used vehicle sales as the industry usually follows the trends seen on the site.

Overall, US car sales rose by 8.7% in Q1 of 2021 and March 2021 sales are expected to be 50% higher than they were in March 2020 (*NOTE 1).

A spokesperson for USVINData.com comments, "We find that our search figures are usually in line with used vehicle sales trends so when our figures drop, this usually means that overall sales go down and vice versa. The fact that we have seen three months of continued increases in searches means that more people are looking to purchase a new vehicle and this will hopefully see an increase in used vehicle sales.

"2020 was a hard year for everyone in the automotive industry but this positive trend is great news and hopefully bodes well for the rest of 2021"

Using a vehicle checking site is vital when purchasing a used car or truck as you can't normally see any real problems just by looking at it. In addition to this, you should always ask the seller why they are selling it, their answer should make sense. You should also ask to see the VIN number on the driver's side door and the dashboard, if they don't match up there is a serious problem. If possible, take the car for a 30-minute test drive, this will give it time to warm up and also show up any problems. Finally, you should always ask a mechanic to check the vehicle over if you can.

USVINData.com was created to ensure that Americans could access all available information on a used car before they made the decision to buy, making sure that they don't get ripped off.

The company started off by offering VIN checks which only provide basic data, but over time have developed their data search systems to be able to now offer a full report into the history of a vehicle. With this report, you can find out whether the has been in any major accidents or totaled. It also provides information on fire and flood damage and even lets you know if the vehicle has been reported stolen. Best of all you even get an estimate of how much you should be paying for the vehicle.

All of this information is vital for anyone purchasing a used car or truck. Even if you are not buying a top-of-the-range car you want to get good value for money and not something that will break down shortly after you buy it. With this report, you will know exactly what you are buying and end up with a car or truck you can be proud of.

Fanplayr Issued U.S. Patent on Segmentation as a Service

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Fanplayr, a leader in online behavioral personalization and artificial intelligence for the past decade, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 10,958,743 which is related to the use of true first party observed data to offer behavior personalization focused on growing revenues for Fanplayr customers.

U.S. Patent No. 10,958,743 was issued on March 23, 2021 and covers the use of "Method and System for Segmentation as a Service" by Fanplayr.

"Segmentation as a Service" enables Fanplayr's powerful segmentation engine to be deployed for real-time segmentation with multiple apps, 3rd party systems, and combining first-party data with CRM and CDP historic data. The patent recognizes that Fanplayr is the only technology company offering segmentation as a broadly available service in the global ecommerce industry.

The technology disclosed in the patent modularizes the real-time evaluation of first-party data that reflects individual experiences and then defines an interface wherein the actions of remote, third-party services can be invoked. This enables such remote services to become increasingly fit for purpose without having to deal with the complexity and meaning of each individual visit. Such visits have context, such as purchase and visit history, site pattens and market trends, individual and collective behavioral indicators that remote services have limited awareness of.

Through the use of Segmentation As A Service, Fanplayr dramatically reduces the technical challenge of integrating state-of-art AI and IOT technologies and optimizes their relevance to each visit as it happens.

The patent includes various use cases that illustrate its claims, such as creating better visitor awareness in chatbots, survey widgets, credit calculation algorithms, cart margin evaluations and intelligent recommendations of products and articles.

The patent will remain in effect until 2038. Corresponding international patent filings in Europe, UK, China, HK, and Australia are pending grant.

At the heart of the Fanplayr method is true, first-party data which refers to information gathered in real-time, that is actionable as it happens, and originates from its primary source.

"In the current AdTech ecosystem, historical tracking data from cookies is not only less reliable but those third-party cookies are in the process of being phased out by pending privacy changes," says Derek Adelman, Co-founder and Vice President of APAC for Fanplayr. "Fanplayr's Seg-As-A-Service technology allows the customer to have confidence in services that have a more complete awareness of visitor experiences. Because they operate from data that is pure and actionable and see it as it happens, they not only deliver a consistently better result, but they can enjoy continuous improvement as these services become more visitor aware and more fit to their purpose."

Simon Yencken, Fanplayr CEO & Co-founder, says the technology required significant foresight and development. "Ten years ago, we saw that the future of the digital world would be understanding visitors in a responsive but non-intrusive way, as a digital replication of the interaction between a salesperson and a customer," says Yencken. "This patent recognizes the originality and uniqueness of our approach, thus protecting the intellectual property (IP) and establishing a strong defense from would-be competitors. We are extremely pleased with the patent issuance as a critical step in our product development, differentiation, and global expansion for Fanplayr."

With an enormous surge in e-commerce in the last year, Fanplayr's expansion has been driven by its ability to convert online users into buyers for companies of all sizes. Customers range from notable high-end fashion retailers and hotels to banking and major software brands. The company has expanded with operations in top global markets, including the U.S., United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and the Middle East among others.

In addition to steadily increasing its global footprint, Fanplayr has announced several new services, or "products," in the past year, including Product Recommendations and SMS Messaging for brands. "Our goal is to offer a full range of products, to preserve the integrity of the data we capture and also to provide the most comprehensive system of artificial intelligence and behavior analysis available, thereby ensuring positive results for our customers," says Rajiv Sunkara, Co-founder and CTO of Fanplayr.

From its global headquarters in Palo Alto, California, Fanplayr has been leading fully integrated online personalization and AI for a decade. The company has achieved consistent growth of more than 60% annually over the last several years.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- "The Leafwing" (ISBN: 978-0981660233), by author Deborah Copeland, is a new YA fantasy novel that is making waves on the YA Fantasy charts. With a book trailer that lives up to the high-intensity drama and mythological thrill as the novel, it certainly is a great fantasy book to immerse yourself in.

Fourteen-year-old Amelia Ricci goes to school every day thinking that everything is normal. Same faces. Same friends. Same boring city. Soon she discovers that something is a bit off; that a pack of recluse Tony Hawk wannabes aren't really human. But the scary part is only she can see them. She's the only one who knows their secret. Things start to get really complicated because while she's watching them, they're watching her ... at midnight, at dusk, even in her dreams.

"A delightful mixture of mythological creatures with a fresh twist set in an ordinary city with lots of funny and cool characters. If Twilight and The Lightning Thief had a baby, it would be The Leafwing," says F. Dominguez, Amazon's Top Reviewer.
