There is too much waiting

Don’t you think there is too much waiting going on? I don’t mean the kind of waiting we do for a burger at the local drive thru or waiting for the mail to arrive.

And it’s not the other kind of waiting we do these days “plugged in” as we are.

It's been 60 days.

It’s been 60 days.

You were ready for Success! You had new expectations! You were ready to accomplish new Goals.

You were ready to reap the benefits of attending the NADA…

R this and R that

R this and R that.  Which one is the right R for our Dealership?  If we concentrate on ROI, what do we lose in ROR? Is it possible to have too much focus on ROR?

Wait. I didn’t explain what I am talking about very well.  Ok.  ROI is referring to Return On Investment.  This “Investment” can be anything. Time, Money, Parts, Labor…anything.  And when we…

Dealers, You Do Not Have Control of Your Data!

Exhibiting at the NADA 2012 Convention and Expo in Las Vegas was very interesting. One of the hottest topics was the “third party data access” controversy that has been unfolding over the last few months. From a DMS provider’s point of view, there are certainly ways that we can help dealers maintain control of their data, such as offering a free data protection service. But as I see the state of things right now, I’d be willing…

Response to Another Factually Incorrect TrueCar Discussion Post

(This was a response to a TrueCar Discussion post that I felt worth showing here)

@Jason M...that statement really exemplifies the tremendous misinformation on this entire subject, and a lack of understanding of regulatory issues.  Case in point...

When I was heading up a confidential entrepreneurial project for Ford Motor Company over 10 years ago, there was no state license or regulation that was directly applicable to that business model in all the states we were…

The buzz is back!


After spending the last few days at the NADA Convention in San Francisco it was evident that while consumer spending remains cautious, vendors and exhibitors are positively optimistic about doing business in 2011. And, as always, 'San Fran' didn't disappoint: cool cars, sensational weather and...the opportunity to pick-up on the Superbowl vibe, which as the whole world knows by now was won by the Green Bay Packers who thumped the Pittsburg Steelers 31 to 25. Another highlight…
