Essentially there are different levels of extraction and analysis of the NAAMSA retail sales databases stored in association with Lightstone Auto. Broadly
defined, these are laid out below:
Method 1. Flash Telex. Public Release of last month's sales figures by model class. This occurs
within the first two working days of the new month. Commonly referred to as the "Flash Telex". NAAMSA undertakes to email
this release to 'Flash Telex' subscribers, one day prior to the embargo date, to aid speedy analysis. To subscribe, please contact
email@example.com. Following the embargo time, these figures are published on the NAAMSA web
site at www.naamsa.co.za/latest/
as well as in the media.
Method 2. The NAAMSAONLINE presentation system. This is specifically designed to afford internet access to Autopulse
data, summarised in report, graphic and tabular form. Additional facilities are available in this online internet system. For more information,
please visit www.naamsa.co.za/newmember/.
Method 3. The AUTOSTATS inquiry database. An internet database inquiry system offering varying access paths using
the Lightstone Auto NAAMSA statistical sales data. Five year's sales are online with the facility to enquire by specifications. For more
information on this user-friendly product, visit www.autostats.co.za.
Method 4. Ever mindful of the numerous requests that we get for data in increasingly-varied formats, we have established a qualified
CAR PARC by model by town. Using the Lightstone Auto Naamsa databases going back to 1980 coupled with scrappage factors and total registration
figures and sales performance patterns over the years we have created a valuable database for component and other suppliers who need to assess their
market properly in each area. See www.carparc.co.za.
