Interesting: TrueCar said to consider IPO for next year

Have y'all seen this article in Automotive News?

The $1.5 BILLION valuation just astounds me. Would TrueCar going public bring more transparency to their business model and/or validate their "change of heart"?

TRUECar Partnership With Allstate Enhances Lead Generation Network

It looks like everyone wants to be in the automotive lead generation business. Over the last year I have been writing about Google Cars; a program (in beta testing) to present new car inventory to consumers shopping for a car directly in Google search results.  Dealers are charged by Google on a per lead basis.

Auto Dealer Data Leakage - Data Reports, Lock'm Down - DTG Digital Efficiency

The Data War is raging.

Added after initial post:

My suggestion of Locking Down Critical Dealership Data Fields has generated interesting feedback on other thread(s). The jury is out here on why others are not jumping on board with the suggestion of starving the beast by restricting which data is accessible to a VERY limited number of intermediary data polling services. Don't mind me for trying to keep this simple... That is what I do... I look at things (mostly digital) and…

Why is Dealer Data so Valuable? (A discussion on DLP)

It's very simple.  The Dealer is the collection point of most data used in the automotive industry.  Think about it.  We collect and store personal data, price and invoice data, mileage data, inventory trend data, margin data, marketing results data, and so much more.  Our data is real time, cyclical and recurring, annually.  Our data is the best source of local trends and history.  Dealers have it all.  No wonder every other vendor in the world wants to Mine our Data.…

Thank You for Protecting Our Data, Car Research!

Car Research, a notable CRM company, today takes an EXTREMELY strong dealer-protective and data-protective stance--essentially, they're first to take a strong public stand that they do NOT share your data with anyone and only use the data as a dealer directs. No selling of data! No remarketing to your customers!  No condescension!  ON A DEALER'S SIDE RIGHT OUTTA' THE GATE FOR YEARS NOW AND STILL GOING FORWARD!  WONDERFUL!!!!  Here's their email announcement:

Scott Painter (CEO of TrueCar) speaks to Stan Sher (President of Dealer eTraining)

It was Monday December 12, 2011 and I had decided to take a nap at 4:00 PM as I had just spent an average of 14 hours per day working from my home office.  I actually spent all weekend working on projects and creating more curriculums.

My nap was rather long and I slept until 8:00 PM.  I woke up and looked at my cell phone only to find a voice message from a random phone number in California.  I listened to the message and saw that it was one of Scott Painter's…
