Our History

The backbone of vehicle transactions

In 1989 David Henley Systems was formed with the purpose of supplying Automotive Data and Systems to the UK Vehicle Leasing and Dealership industries. This was the birth of a range of products which has been forming the backbone of vehicle transactions and decisions across the UK ever since.  

DataDirect, the complete source for vehicle data, is one of these products; now sitting alongside our SMR forecasting tool SMR3.

The DataDirect Business Unit has been one of most important suppliers to its markets for around 30 years. In 2000 the company joined Global IDS, with an over 30-year track record. Our services grew and our reputation in the industry was truly consolidated.

International Decision Systems supports asset finance solution requirements around the world. IDS is the market-leading software and service solution provider for the equipment finance industry.  

In the UK, this global perspective enables us to ensure that our solutions remain competitive and effective- relevant at all times to the increasingly complex requirements of our customers’ operations.

Into the future, we are committed to helping our customers to build competitive advantage, increase ROA, and manage regulatory requirements.
