I am heading home to Detroit for Thanksgiving, and client meetings. Everyone in this business knows about winter in Detroit. On this trip, I will see ODE, Route One and (not confirmed yet) GMAC. I am proposing to continue running my brainchild, the Provider Exchange Network.
I recently attended the F&I Conference in Orlando, where I spoke with leaders of Open Dealer Exchange (ODE), ADP and Reynolds’ joint venture for credit aggregation. ODE will use the Provider Exchange Network (PEN), which I originally developed for MenuVantage. They are still running the network in good earnest. Route One is also a PEN user, so maybe there is room for “co-opetition” between the two aggregators.
