As the new owners of GoodCarBadCar, I wanted to drop a note to first thank you all for your patience with GoodCarBadCar over the last year. We want you to know that at A07 we take our readers feedback VERY seriously. Without you, there is no GoodCarBadCar and I want to thank you all for sticking with us.
We’ve been hard at work over the last year working to improve the overall experience at GCBC.
We know that there has been frustration from some of you with inconsistent data in some of our posts so the top priority for us was to improve on this process.
Previously – all posts, charts and reports were manually updated by hand. We quickly learned that this left a ton of room for error and inconsistency which we know aggravated our readers to no end.
We want you to know that your feedback has been received loud and clear which is why over the last 6 months we’ve put a plan together to improve the overall experience and quality of GCBC.
We took a step back to resolve some of the fundamental issues with delivering high quality and consistent data and have just completed phase 1 of our automation and data drive platform.
What does this mean?
In a nutshell, the manual process has been 95% cut out and moving forward we can deliver a consistent data experience for our readers. This means that the margin for error will be minimal speed to reports will be quicker and data consistency will be improved.
Going forward, this also means we can begin creating custom reports, data extracts, visualizations, add additional markets and much more. We will also be releasing an API that will allow our more advanced users to generate their own custom reports, segment breakdowns and advanced charts.
We want to hear from our readers on what YOU want. We are here to build a platform that our readers will find useful and will keep you happy. We want you to contact us at any time with ideas, feedback, requests, discrepancies, errors or just questions.
Want more commentary and articles? Let us know. Interested in charts or a new segment? Tell us!
We fully encourage user feedback and will strive to make this site the best on the web. Our end goal is to make our readers happy, deliver a consistent experience and constantly improve.
I want to add – we’re still in the infancy stages of this so if you do notice anything requiring a correction please contact us and we will jump on it as quick as possible.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to building a great user experience for you all.
