Big data is not a new phenomenon in the automotive industry. The increasing presence of connectivity, with the short- to mid-terms promising high-speed/high-bandwidth connectivity like LTE in the car, is a key reason for pursing big data in the industry. The shift is taking place due to the need to cut down on spiraling warranty costs and the need to create a data sharing network between the dealer, customer, and the OEM and others.

Whilst car sharing has existed for several years, the uptake rates and emergence of new players has proliferated in the last five years; the number of members increased by more than 90 percent between 2008 and 2012, for example. With that in mind, Frost & Sullivan wanted to learn more about the members currently using car sharing services, including their preferences and aspirations for the car sharing concept in the future, but also to understand from non-members what would encourage them to join such services, as well as their idea of a “winning concept.” In doing so, a targeted survey of more than 2,300 people was conducted in the UK, France, and Germany, with 12 cities in total.
Attendees should attend to:
· Understand the current and future usage of car sharing services from a customer/member perspective
· Discuss the winning concept and willingness to pay that was highlighted across our sample
· Look at existing car sharing member profiles
· Understand familiarity, interest and adoption amongst non-members
Frost & Sullivan's new study on the future of car retailing suggests that car companies will increasingly apply an omni-channel strategy to market and sell their cars. The study finds that about 4 percent of all new cars sold in the future, about 4.5 million cars, could be sold completely online by 2020. As a consequence, dealerships will need to change their traditional approach to sales. OEMs will choose either an evolutionary approach or a completely revolutionary, omni-channel approach.
Why You Should Attend:
- Hear a comprehensive analysis of a new omni-channel retail strategy
- Focus on the futuristic scenario of automotive retail influenced by social media, fashion, and the consumer electronics industry
- Listen to success stories of automotive OEMs in online retailing
- Find out about digital retailing and how it impacts hard and soft KPIs
- Participate in an interactive Q&A session
