Where VIN data ends, build data begins. We consider it the birth certificate for the vehicle because it is the manufacturing codes that an OEM assigns for a specific VIN at the time the vehicle is manufactured, and these codes identify actually installed features as well as trim and package information.

Why should insurers care? Build data identifies the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and safety features on a car – not just what is possible, but what has actually been installed on that specific vehicle. This information can help insurers evaluate risk and the severity of potential claims which can result in more accurately priced premiums.
