3. U.S. Patent Office Awards IAA New Patent
As the industry’s technology leader, IAA is continually innovating to provide its buyers and sellers with the best experience possible. The latest evidence of IAA’s technological leadership comes from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which has awarded IAA a patent for its automation of the tower dispatch process. By automating the towing and dispatch cycle IAA has streamlined the entire vehicle recovery process, saving users time and increasing their ease of use. The patent is the latest example of IAA’s efforts to continually improve the customer experience through seamless, user-friendly technology.
