Rollout Of Parc Data For Agriculture Vehicles: Germany

Around the second quarter of 2015, we began to adapt and prepare our software and make and model database for the inclusion of a whole new segment, namely agriculture vehicles. During the last months we have been in touch with some of the leading data sources in order to acquire up-to-date and fully specified registration figures for this particular segment. Our rollout of parc data will be gradual, but finally we can reveal that Germany will be first out of the gate. In other words, Headline will be primed and ready to deliver agriculture parc data in February 2016 when we release our parc data until the end of 2014 and with the added sales update for the first 6 months of 2015.
