Company

TruDecision was founded by industry veterans with decades of experience in automotive lending, analytics and technology to address major inefficiencies in the marketplace.

Online buying, a crowded marketplace and changing consumer habits have resulted in auto dealers and lenders spending increasing amounts of money on customer acquisition and retention.  TruDecision provides sophisticated technology designed to reverse this trend and bring valuable efficiencies to our dealer and lender partners, improving deal closure rates and reducing costs.
With offices and career opportunities in Dallas and Toronto, TruDecision’s innovative digital solutions provide dealers with unique customer insights, resulting in significant cost and time savings, while offering lenders enhanced underwriting capabilities to maximize decision accuracy.
