    Nice one @craigh@craigh - The DealerCue marketeers think they are slick. They're not getting anything over on this community.

    Not trying to be slick at all, the post was asking about innovators/innovations...I quite simply was replying with my opinion. I never mentioned my company at all but I very much apologize if I offended you or this forum

    Oh the fun DealerRefresh has had with people in Kansas City skating on the edge of our rules over the years. Anyone remember the old VinSolutions gang? Matt Watson anyone :poke:

    In hindsight I kinda miss that kid. I hear his name pop-up from some of my product/engineering friends at Cox from time to time. His name pops up the same way every time: they're still trying to unwind some of his original code to fix something :rofl:

    Although he was, apparently, a little sloppy on the coding keyboard I must admit he was quick to get new features out to dealers. And that is sorely missed these days.

    Anything new here? It got a lot of hype at the last NADA, but I haven't heard much since.

    Looks like https://marketplace.fortellis.io is, but I've not seen it executed. Regardless, I like where their heads are, if they can pull this off.

    I heard of this and it sounded cool... It uses the Fortellis platform mentioned above to quote insurance payments. It's built right into CDK desking and F&I... enabling managers to make more gross on the front end of a car deal or simply sell more.
