Automotive Trade and Repair Shops

Expanding business through customer experience

The automotive industry relies on dealers selling and servicing new and used cars as well as independent repair shops to generate vehicle and spare part sales while providing excellent customer service. As dealers welcome customers on our premises to view, test-drive and purchase an automobile, aftersales care and repair shops play an important part in efforts aimed at boosting customer satisfaction to encourage customer loyalty and increase brand value.

While new and pre-owned distribution networks rely on traditional sales strategies and methods conducted at well-kept facilities housing large inventories, maintenance departments and independent repair shops provide on-site services requiring state-ofthe-art equipment as well as diagnostic and technical skills. Both face challenges in safeguarding assets, developing efficient management systems, implementing effective marketing strategies, promoting incentives and adding more online services.
Aiming to offset revenue losses and maintain margins in spite of new mobility and digital retailing concepts, dealers must also comply with stringent environmental regulations and efficiently manage the upfront investment needed to keep up with advances in technology. A complete service portfolio must go beyond compliance, providing practical solutions that integrate multiple capabilities. Over-arching services support innovative and digitalized supply and distribution channels to create value and ensure the optimum customer experience.
