The Great Recession caught most of the used-car industry by surprise, says Chris Brady, CIO at Dealer Services Corp. A lot of dealers assumed the downturn would be short and mild, so they went on adding inventory at a fairly steady rate. As a result, many used-car inventory-financing firms didn’t see the writing on the wall until the recession was already in full swing.

Dealer Services, in contrast, got a heads up early in the year from its newly deployed business intelligence (BI) platform, Information Builders’ WebFocus, Brady says.

Dealer Services is far from alone. According to a recent Aberdeen Group report, 67% of “best in class” companies and 21% of all businesses have adopted some form of self-service BI.
