As a Car Dealership with 20 years of experience, the company was keen to demonstrate their passion for the automotive sector and their customer base. The dealership mission statement maintains, ‘That as leaders and role models within the industry, we stand strongly and firmly on a foundation of experience and knowledge, strengthened by partnerships and proud to represent the world’s largest vehicle brands’.
Though well established, it was recognised that there was a need for a technology solution to manage the sales process from beginning to end, through a centralised data repository. There was a clear need for improved reporting with a particular requirement for greater visibility into sales activities.
Further, there was considered need to be able to access customer data with an overview of discussions held, agreed actions, orders placed, and specific offers for each interaction by sales individual and or partner.
The need for a centralised CRM (Customer Resource Management) was identified allowing instant access to updated information for both the sales teams, partners, and managers.
All sales and partners sales activities are monitored at each stage by individual sales and as groups.
A management sales employee dashboard offers performance management and identified training development by individual.
