With approximately 100 million vehicles being recalled in the USA alone since 2014, why are 63 million unrepaired cars still on the roads?
 
Answer: Information about recalled vehicles is decentralized, unorganized, and difficult to find. In many cases, people aren't even aware that their car has been recalled.
 
Using "digital forensics"—the process of culling, processing, and organizing enormous quantities of unstructured recall data — Silicon Valley tech startup Recall Masters identifies hundreds of thousands of problem vehicles per month, revolutionizing a traditional industry that's notoriously slow to innovate.
 
Since inception, Recall Masters has identified 63 million vehicles in open recall since 2000, gotten hundreds of thousands of recalled vehicles into dealerships for repairs (reducing the danger on America's roads), and is first software company to digitize "Don't Drive" and "Stop Sale" recall tracking into its SaaS API and batch processing platforms.
 
For anyone who has ever owned a vehicle in open recall — especially those who have lost a loved one to an easily avoidable accident — Recall Masters' sophisticated real-time information platform is nothing short of a miracle.
 
Chris Miller, founder and CEO of Recall Masters, a successful programmer who specialized in building software to automate marketing communications, realized there was a huge data problem plaguing the automotive recall industry, and he wanted to use his experience in the automotive industry to build an easy-to-use solution dealerships.
 
This is how Recall Masters was born. This platform harnesses big data to help automakers and dealers expedite the repair of recalled vehicles and make the roads safer for everyone. In addition, Chris wanted to help drivers easily find their car's recall status, so he set up a nonprofit, MotorSafety.org.
 
Chris' startup has thus far tracked millions of vehicle recalls, and is proving that technology can both keep drivers safe and increase profits for dealerships.
