What’s the Issue?

The data that new cars collect and transmit is incredibly valuable for auto repair purposes. But right now, cars automatically send that data back to the automaker. They get to decide how to use this data and can make it available to their dealer service departments that can then solicit owners for maintenance and repairs. Car owners have no control over who gets this information.

93% of auto industry employees think car owners should control their own data.
90% of car owners think they could save more money by visiting an independent repair shop.

What this means for your business

If owners could direct vehicle data to independent repair shops and auto parts stores like yours, you could service their cars more conveniently and efficiently. Repair shops could diagnose car trouble and obtain auto parts before the vehicle even gets there. Without owner access to and control over their own data, your business remains out of the loop.
