Across the country, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) locations have been working to catch up with the backlog of title-and-registration work caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and related shutdowns and short staffing. While most DMVs are back to full-time operations, many are having to find unique ways to deal with all the backlogged work – whether through requiring appointments, closing down for a couple days just to focus on delayed work or limiting walk-in service to certain days of the week.
On top of these current challenges DMVs are working through, some automotive players are concerned over whether additional delays could occur as the weather gets colder and people stay indoors, particularly if COVID-19 cases rise and offices are forced to close or limit their hours.
Fleet-management companies (FMCs), upfitters, trucking companies, retailers and other companies with fleets are typically facing more DMV delays than individual car owners , and many are looking for ways to expedite the process and prevent any further delays.
Title-and-registration automation is one way in which companies can do just that – with streamlining of the overall workflow, reduced cycle time on these services and additional business insights and reporting to help with decision-making. If a company with a fleet partner with a title-and-registration provider like ACERTUS that has such data-integration capabilities, not only can that company simplify its role in the process, but it can bypass many of the current backlog-related challenges that many others are facing at this time.
Since ACERTUS has launched data integration on its title-and-registration services earlier this year, these are the biggest benefits its auto partners have noticed:
First and foremost, data integration simplifies and streamlines the title-and-registration work for companies with fleets, establishing Application Programming Interface (API) technology that can seamlessly integrate with both auto partners’ and DMVs’ online systems. This automation technology also allows for straightforward file integration, as well, creating efficient avenues for sharing important documentation back and forth and removing unnecessary manual steps in the traditional title-and-registration process.
With such flat-file connections, the company in question can enjoy both fewer steps and a more user-friendly experience as it works through title-and-registration processing for fleet vehicles. This online data integration also allows companies to receive critical real-time status updates on all active orders as progress is made.
Shorter Cycle Time
Particularly useful right now amid ongoing service delays at DMVs across the United States, reduced cycle time is one of the most notable factors ACERTUS’ auto partners have noticed since utilizing API technology. With fewer and less confusing steps, an easy and efficient way to share information and important paperwork and straightforward prompts that show up when it’s time for a company to on an order, this data integration results in quicker turnaround times, expedites the larger title-and-registration process and helps to offset much of the downtime caused by the COVID-related DMV backlogs.
In addition to a shorter cycle time when it comes to the title-and-registration services, the less-intensive steps associated with automation means companies have more free time to prioritize their own critical day-to-day fleet operations and stay focused on what matters most for their respective businesses.
Data integration on title-and-registration services paves the way for better business insights and reporting. Companies with fleets who choose to outsource their title-and-registration work and partner with a provider like ACERTUS that has such automation will realize these types of benefits, as well – detailed reporting, regular updates and fleet-focused business insights that provide further context on the work being done.
Not only do such reports allow a company to assess the title-and-registration services being conducted and the partnership it has with an outside provider, but they also ensure that same company can take these insights and use them to make well-informed decisions for its specific business and fleet units.
