The Need For Deeper Connections

The Automotive industry is all about experience. The experience of choosing, driving and maintaining a car covers many touchpoints from online to the dealership, the call center, not to mention the overall brand advertising experience. The list goes on, but these experiences are getting more and more disjointed by disparate data sources and systems operating in silos.

And with 60% of buying decisions made before even setting foot in a dealership, the need to bring all these factors together has never been greater and is crucial to helping staff to have better informed, tailored conversations that can increase sales, build brand trust and create loyalty to keep brands and dealers ahead of the competition.

Given the immediate success of Ford’s collaborative assembly line, it’s peculiar that over a century later, our data and marketing technologies (whose fundamental role is to connect every department of an organization) aren’t more harmonious or impactful. Today Consumers want a seamless, informed experience. As Ford did in 1913, Automotive brands now need to connect assets, minimize complexity and innovate to succeed. Read the blog...
