The EDGE ASI team is here to announce a change to the way Frame Damage disclosure works (and how that displays online in EDGE Pipeline / EDGE Lookout).
This change applies to both EDGE Mobile ASI & CR Input and is LIVE at your EDGE ASI auction now.
The Reason for the Change
Previously, EDGE ASI supported an On/Off checkbox for Frame Damage. "On" meant there was indeed Frame Damage, and "Off" meant the Frame was good. There was no way easy & dependable way to say that the frame was not checked at all. This means that auctions that never checked the frame were advertising them as "Frame: Good" on EDGE Pipeline / Lookout... which is obviously problematic.
How To Use It
As of this week, the "Body & Structural" checkbox will imply a frame check has indeed been performed. Conversely, if you only perform a visual check of the vehicle on no frame check, then only check the "Visual" checkbox.
The logic will then work as follows
- Anytime "Visual Frame Damage" is checked, EDGE Pipeline says "Frame : Damage"
- IF "Visual Frame Damage" is not checked, and "CR Completed for:" has Body & Structural set to TRUE, EDGE Pipeline says "Frame : Good"
- IF "Visual Frame Damage" not checked, and "CR Completed for:" has Body & Structural set to FALSE, EDGE Pipeline says "Frame : - - " (in other words, "not applicable, we didn't check the frame")
Here's a visual representation of that same logic:
Written out that way, it may seem a bit daunting. However, when you think through the common scenarios, it actually is a lot more intuitive now.
Let's say I didn't do a frame check on a car at all. I'd not check the top "Visual Frame Damage" box, and say "CR Completed for: Visual". On EDGE Pipeline that would say "Frame: - -".
On the next car, let's stay you checked the frame and it was good. I'd not check the top "Visual Frame Damage" box, and say "CR Completed for: Body & Structural". On EDGE Pipeline that would say "Frame: Good".
Any time you check the top "Visual Frame Damage" box, EDGE Pipeline will say "Frame: Damaged".
