Who We Are

Since our founding in 2013, all of us at Driven Data have been committed to providing pioneering, data-enabled solutions to our clients and partners in the retail automotive industry. Our ability to make the monumental amount of data a dealership generates easy to access, understand, and act on is grounded in our team’s unique experience in both the data science and dealership worlds.

What We Do

At Driven Data, our mission is to provide the automotive industry will the most efficient marketing possible. We do this by delivering full visibility into data, and the confidence needed to make important decisions. This is all possible through our platform that provides one single environment that connects all of a business's data software and marketing tools.

We do this through marketing-centric solutions focused on four important areas:

Visibility_Icon_320x280

Visibility
We bring over 100 (and growing) integrations together in an intentionally engineered experience that provides you with transparency across—and into—all aspects of your business. That broad and deep view can inform—and transform—your strategy, tactics, and results in profound ways.

Usability_Icon_320x280

Usability
Until now, accessing—never mind analyzing and using—the tens of millions of data points an average dealership creates every week has been virtually impossible. We’ve built a platform that puts usability first. Driven Data is easy to implement, effortless to navigate, and efficient to use, day in and day out.

Actionability_Icon_320x250

Actionability
Data—especially high quality, high quantity data—can be overwhelming. From insights to recommendations to instant, automated, and customized implementation, we make it possible to confidently act on everything your data is telling you about your business.

Adaptability_Icon_320x240

Adaptability
Driven Data is built to ensure that the needs and opportunities unique to YOUR business are what drives the experience of working OUR business, and not the other way around.

Who We Work For

Plain and simple: the automotive industry. Driven data serves the entire automotive community, to help you effortlessly view, understand, and act on all of your data.
