Customized service offers, based on predictive vehicle data
Retaining 75 percent of customers in the OEM's dealer network is the ambitious target the OEM has set for itself. Currently, only 50 percent of customers in after-sales are loyal – especially owners of older vehicles choose to visit independent repair shops.
Today, in most cases there is no proactive customer contact regarding service or repair needs. Moreover, customers often only visit the dealer when they are experiencing problems.
Also the OEM only exploits 20 percent of the market potential of starter batteries. Based on a newly developed predictive data model, the pilot project has shown significant conversion potential and is the starting point for achieving a higher market share for starter batteries, as well as for other vehicle components.
Approach in detail
Data model development
Development of a predictive model, using vehicle-specific battery and vehicle usage data. With the help of the model the state of health and replacement need of starter batteries of the vehicle fleet can be determined remotely.
After-sales and service dealer processes
Integration of pilot project processes with existing service processes. Alignment of process setup with participating dealers and requirements collection for future system integration.
After-sales marketing campaigns
Setup of a marketing campaign, focussing on exploiting the potential and possibilitiesenabled through the data-based and vehicle-specific service information.
Pilot rollout management
Steering of campaign execution and monitoring of results in terms of conversion, loyalty andcustomer satisfaction (NPS).
