Automotive retail is changing

There is no question that customer expectations of automotive retail are changing in the third decade of the 21st century.

Our latest white paper takes a look at how new thinking can help you create the best customer experience online and in the showroom.

The change comes, in part, thanks to the continuing shift towards digital that's happening to retail in general, and in part thanks to new well-funded players in the automotive world who've worked hard to change customer expectations and gain an advantage.

This paper contains:

  • A search strategy checklist
  • Key points on the customer journey
  • A dealer view on search
