S&P Global Mobility, a provider of automotive data, analysis, and insights based in Southfield, has acquired Market Scan Information Systems Inc. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are excited to add Market Scan to the S&P Global Mobility product family. The acquisition adds powerful new datasets and capabilities to S&P Global Mobility that will allow us to create even more value for our clients and power a next generation of digital automotive retail opportunities,” says Joe LaFeir, president of automotive insights at S&P Global Mobility.
“As the digital landscape continues to evolve in support of more robust information informing the vehicle purchase process, the integration of Market Scan products and solutions into the S&P Global Mobility and automotiveMastermind portfolios will provide additional value for joint customers today and new clients into the future as new solutions are built.”
Market Scan is a provider of automotive pricing and inventive intelligence. The addition will enable the integration of detailed transaction intelligence in areas that are complementary to existing services for dealers, OEMs, lenders, and other market participants.
“When my father and I started Market Scan, we never thought capturing the attention of industry-leading giants was a possibility — we were simply focused on selling desking software to car dealers. Now, over three decades later, we have been acquired by one of the greatest and most respected companies in the world,” says Rusty West, president, and CEO of Market Scan, who will remain with S&P Global Mobility to drive successful integration and product innovation.
“Our values and visions are perfectly aligned, positioning us to collectively evolve automotive commerce in ways never before imagined. I’m extremely proud of our Market Scan family members for all they have accomplished. Their talent, dedication, and vision have been and will continue to be, an important element in creating solutions for some of the most difficult problems in the industry.”
