Project
Predictive Analytics and Maintenance 

Development and pilot rollout of a predictive analytics data model as enabler for proactive customer campaigns with the objective to increase customer retention in after-sales.  

challenges

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.​
