VINData is an e-commerce platform that provides NMVTIS-compliant real-time vehicle history reports for individuals and businesses on used cars, light trucks, motorcycles, and any other types of vehicles one would think to buy. VINData partners with the most reliable and trusted data providers in the industry and generates reports that include all critical information a buyer might need to know before making the purchase. Customers get DMV title data plus lots of extras like Black Book and MMR values, open recalls, open liens, active thefts, and more.
Combining old & new ideas and starting from scratch
The founders of VINData had a few successful projects in the automotive industry over the years. One of these projects used to be a web service supplying vehicle history data, a CarFax and Autocheck competitor. When VINData partnered with TulaCo back in 2016 to ramp up the technical implementation, our team helped the company make the service faster and more reliable We moved it to a modern tech stack and implemented a new integration with vehicle data providers. As the project was a great success, the founders contacted us again in early 2020 to work on their new project - VINData, web service and online store that would unite their old know-how, experience, and fresh ideas.
Experienced team with a domain expertise
It was crucial for VINData to have a development team that already knew the project domain from a tech perspective. Such a team would be able to implement integrations with vehicle data providers quickly and most effectively. TulaCo met that requirement perfectly and provided a team of Back-End, Front-End, Quality Assurance, DevOps engineers, and a project manager who was involved in the development of the previous system.
Within a year, the TulaCo Development team managed to build the most important parts of the system, launched it in production, and started providing vehicle data to the customers.
From 0 to 1000+ daily reports
Since 2020, TulaCo has implemented vehicle data integrations of industry-leading providers like AAMVA/NMVTIS, NHTSA, Black Book, Kelley Blue Book (KBB), NVS, Manheim, J.D.Power/Nada Guides, EveryCarListed,, RecallMasters, DecodeThis, FMCSA and established a solid foundation for future extensions. VINData has been gradually growing and has reached 20K+ customers of regular buyers, car dealers, and commercial API consumers. Every day the system generates and delivers 1000+ vehicle history reports. Our team continues to add new vehicle data sources into the system regularly and implements tools for report customization and management. All the efforts allow VINData to be a major player in the market.
The TulaCo team provides unmatched service for building, launching, and scaling complex IT solutions. We've worked together for over a decade on several projects and the team's dedication, commitment, resource breadth, and can-do attitude has been an integral part of our successful development.
