MSX International


The Challenge

Green Fields Complex Financial Analysis and Benchmarking Suite

For more than 25 years, MSX International has worked closely with vehicle manufacturers around the world, helping their customers maximize value and achieve measurable success through an innovative portfolio of automotive business solutions and services. Driving their success is the MSX MRA ® Performance Model that provides insights into the key factors that contribute to automotive retail performance. Used to evaluate a firm‘s financial position by assessing operating efficiency and asset utilization, the model serves as an invaluable decision-making framework.

MSX International is also an industry leader in automotive retail benchmarks. Essential to OEM’s and dealers, benchmark data facilitates the comparison of dealer performance against similared sized dealers in their local network. At the core of their product suite is a sophisticated software data model running the MRA algorhytm converting dealers accounting and statistical data into metrics and benchmarks used to drive and track performance. Implementing and scaling the MSX MRA ® Performance Model called for a strong team of senior engineers. That’s why they reached out to Vulcan Labs to help design, develop and maintain their software suite.
