I don't follow your logic.
I am a vendor and we send as many fields as possible because it benefits everyone.
I don't benefit from holding back any data.
Craig - you're not only one of the good guys, you're smart enough to know what data elements benefit dealers. There are players out there who actively hold back on sending data because it would prove their solution does not add much value. And then there are other players who do not understand their clients enough to provide the data that would add more value.

Standards for Technology in Automotive Retail (STAR), the global information technology (IT) standards body for retail automotive and related industries, has released the new major version of its 2018 Business Object Documents repository.

STAR has worked with its membership to develop over 200 XML message formats covering over 35 business areas from customer relationship management to fixed and variable operations.

The STAR XML repository continues to be actively modified and developed by the membership.

STAR’s original charter was to support the retail automotive industry, however in recent years it has expanded its support effectively demonstrating value in related industries including:
  • Marine
  • Medium & Heavy-duty Trucks
  • Powersports
  • Construction Equipment
Enhancements to Business Object Documents (BOD) were made in the areas of Parts Inventory, Parts Order, Vehicle Service History, Repair Order, Dealer Locator and Vehicle Invoice.

STAR and its Members have also continued making improvements to the Dealer Security Guidelines.
