Westlake, Texas, Nov. 28, 2018 — Today, Solera Holdings, Inc. (“Solera”), the leading provider of risk and asset management software and services to the automotive, fleet, property and digital identity ecosystems, announced eBay Motors’ sponsorship of the International Automotive Technicians Network (iATN)—the world’s largest network and forum for professional automotive technicians and diagnosticians. eBay’s new sponsorship of the technical forum connects iATN’s professional technicians with eBay Motors, giving them direct access to one of the world’s largest marketplaces for buying and selling all things automotive, including access to over 80 million automotive parts and accessories listings.
“As iATN’s membership of expert technicians continues to grow, we want to provide more resources for them by aligning with organizations that value technical expertise and advanced vehicle knowledge. We’re pleased to partner with eBay Motors, a trusted leader in the industry that our 80,000-member network can turn to for parts and equipment solutions,” Cristopher Hollingsworth, General Manager of Global SMR and Enterprise Solutions for Solera.
“At eBay Motors, we’re continuously looking for new opportunities to provide value to automotive professionals,” said Jordan Hettinga, Senior Director of eBay Motors Parts and Accessories. “Through our sponsorship of iATN, technicians are sure to find the exact part they need at the right price. They are also able to leverage eBay Motors as a sales channel for unused tools and excess parts inventory by connecting them to our 175 million active buyers worldwide.”
This is the third successful partnership between Solera and eBay Motors. Previously, the two teamed up to introduce eLINK, which connects automotive recyclers to millions of automotive parts buyers, and Virtual Tech, which provides a hotline to car technicians for automotive DIYers seeking professional help on a repair.
