Why Do Tow Operators Need Real-Time Data?
There are few things as frustrating as sitting on a vehicle that you cannot legally dispose of because you are waiting on a response from a state. It can take weeks for an out of state record to be obtained by old-fashioned form-and-fax methods , and by the time you get the information back, it may be outdated.
Outdated motor vehicle data can be expensive business for tow operators- going through the notification and the lien process with "bad" information may lead a tax collector to reject a tow company's paperwork. That means that the tow operator will have to start the process over from the beginning, including paying for record, re-sending the certified notification letters and possibly having to post a newspaper ad all over again.
So what is a "real-time" record and why is this important for your business? A real-time record means accurate, up- to-the-second information pulled from the state jurisdiction, and time stamped for verification. Real-time means that a towing company knows it has the most current and accurate information about a vehicle and its owners to complete its state-mandated business process.
Tow operators in Florida and Texas are responsible for determining the owner, registrant, lien holder and in some cases the insurer of an unclaimed vehicle and notifying these parties that the vehicle has been towed. Finding this information is vital to initiating the notification and lien process.
