Loyalty Logistix - Customer Retention & the Power of Data

Challenge: Customer retention and re-sale are the foundation for growth for any Automotive business – OEM / Dealer networks. Many OEMs are unable to get visibility from the dealer network of customer behaviour / loyalty and of the key performance indicators to drive strategy and performance. Solution: Platform delivering insight, measurable increases in customer retention and renewals by making the current customer database their most valuable asset.

Getac – Removing Inefficiencies in the Aftersales process with the use of Digital strategies

Russell will focus on your dealer network and what he is regularly hearing from the Aftersales management teams he speaks with. Due to the transformation in the Industry and the decline in New and Used Vehicle Sales, Aftersales is now more than ever expected to underpin and increase revenue streams but in so many cases their manual processes and paper-based workflows often are set up to fail. At Getac we believe there is a new approach that provides the right conditions to maximise the opportunity and minimize waste.Focusing on the use of digital strategies to maximize throughput of vehicles, provide excellence in customer experience, in turn driving revenue and profitability for the dealer operations. Morevoer, it’s important to keep cost under control and eliminate waste, such as technician idle time.

Worx Automotive – Steering the Change and Gains

This speech will be to introduce the methodolgy of doing the right thing at the right moment based on the Lean philosophy. The topic I would like to address is that although Lean theory has been developed many years ago, it still applies and is now further enabled with predicable AI, Big Data and Connected Vehicle technology. In the past the technology wasn’t available or had to be done “door to door” whilst now the technology becomes available for everyone and can be the perfect solution to the Automotive industry.

In order to meet emission reduction commitments. The UK will ban the sale of Petrol and Diesel powered vehicles from 2030. Other countries will follow a similar approach.
