IAA Auction Data for Bidmate

We are happy to announce that all Bidmate users now have the ability to download and automatically import auctions from any of the 171 IAA auction sites!
Bidmate is's salvage buying tool that calculates a vehicle's worth to your business and how well it will return your investment, so you know how much to bid at the auction. With this enhancement, IAA auction information will automatically become automatically available in Bidmate once you've set up your subscription.
Taking advantage of this within Bidmate just requires some quick initial setup. Complete the easy steps below to download pool data and set up a subscription to automatically download and import vehicles from IAA auction sites:
  1. From Bidmate's main screen, click File>Import>Pool Data (Automatic)>Download and Import. On the popup window that appears, click Yes to download auction pool data. This will retrieve the roster of IAA auction sites.
  2. After the download has finished and you've been returned to Bidmate's main screen, click File>Import>Pool Data (Automatic)>Subscription Setup. In the Auction Group Name column, click the IAA Auction Group option that is now available and the Auction Group Sites column will display the IAA auction sites.
  3. In the Auction Group Sites column, select the IAA auction site that you would like to subscribe to automatic auction imports for, then click the > button to add the site to Your Auction Sites. Repeat this for each auction site you would like to subscribe to.
  4. Click OK.
After you complete these steps, current auction information from the sites you have subscribed to will be automatically processed into Bidmate whenever you download and import pool data.
