ATDS has procured over 3000 vehicles in the last 5 years
ATDS has the experience, tools and personnel to conduct your In-Use Procurement project in an expeditious and cost-effective manner. Whether for Engineering data collection or for Mandated compliance testing, ATDS can locate and procure the vehicles, and/or components, you require. Let our experienced and friendly staff assist you in your vehicle and component procurement efforts.
ATDS has procured over 3000 vehicles in the last 5 years for both government agencies and manufacturers. These procurement activities have been conducted in California, Michigan, Colorado and Texas and have included both 49 and 50 state vehicles from virtually all manufacturers. The procurement projects have supported government agency research projects and manufacturer in-use compliance (CAP2000 and IUMPR) testing. We have also procured vehicles for use in ADP data collection projects; some of these data collection projects have involved an ATDS developed data logging system. Project sizes have ranged from just a few vehicles to over 750. Our experiences in these projects have led ATDS to refine our tools and procedures to improve owner response and vehicle capture rates. These can be critical factors in projects with tight time-lines or small vehicle families.
ATDS can provide assistance in any phase of the procurement process, from telephone interviews to vehicle pick-up and from testing to component harvesting, vehicle restoration and return. If necessary ATDS can arrange for common carrier transportation to or from out of state locations. ATDS maintains a full capability test laboratory in Ontario California where your vehicles can be tested. A four bay garage with lifts and skilled mechanics is available for parts removal or vehicle inspections. For your on-road data collection needs, ATDS can recommend and provide data logging systems with analog and digital inputs and variable sampling rates.
ATDS has the latest computer hardware and software to facilitate the procurement process. We can work from either manufacturer provided owner lists, or, where legal, from lists purchased from state agencies or commercial sources. From these lists, ATDS develops the databases necessary to automate the printing and mailing process and manage the procurement activities. Our personalized letters enhance the likelihood of owner participation in the project.
The ATDS procurement team is the heart of the operation. Our procurement personnel are experienced in explaining the programs to prospective participants in a friendly and informative manner. This approach has yielded consistently high capture rates, particularly when dealing with owners of expensive or high-end vehicles.
