The company was formed in 2001 with the realisation that over the last twenty years the car manufacturing process has led to far more reliability within the different car marques. As a result, the quality gap between marques had narrowed and in turn this has changed the consumers decision-making process. Consumers now place a much higher value on the relationship and customer service aspects of the purchase in relation to the dealers. Therefore the long-term success of the dealership/manufacturer is directly related to their ability to develop, nurture and exploit the relationship with the consumer over time.

Glass's was founded in 1933 by William Glass and the first Guide to Car Values was published in July of that year.

We are the market leader - our guides and valuations are widely used throughout the entire automotive industry - from car dealers (where we estimate that more than 90% buy Glass's Guide to Car Values), to insurance assessors, vehicle fleet and finance houses and increasingly by private consumers who wish to ensure that they are getting an accurate part-exchange valuation for their car, or to check that the asking price of a vehicle that they are interested in buying is fair and reflects its market value.

HPI's role in the second-hand car market is crucial. It provides private car buyers, car dealers, finance houses, and the insurance industry with access to information on all UK registered vehicles. Using HPI ensures that vehicles are legal and will really belong to the people who buy them. HPI was formed in 1938. When the fraudulent re-financing of motorcars was becoming a real problem, the six main lenders gathered data on their hire purchase agreements, to ensure that people couldn't repeatedly use their cars as security for multiple loans.

Postcode Anywhere was established in 2001, having recognised the potential of using the internet to provide a much more efficient medium for delivering data. They had started with some experience using Royal Mail's Postcode Address File database and felt that the market was being constrained by the cost and impracticalities of traditional CD solutions, which were both expensive to produce and required the customer to install and manage the updates. They have seen substantial growth, won more than our fair share of awards and also expanded their platform to accommodate lots of new data. Postcode Anywhere is now a leading independent company providing 'information as a service', with over 250 separate web services and 8,000 customers offering a broad range of business efficiency tools for address and data capture, validation and cleansing to geo-coding, mapping and route planning and optimisation.
