Import Automotive OEM

CONTEXT/CHALLENGE

In the automotive world, the problem isn’t a lack of data, but making sense of the universe of information already out there. One import automotive OEM wanted to integrate its multiple data collections into one easy-to-use system. This would allow invaluable internal and external information to be accessed by their teams to develop growth strategies for individual dealers.

Vital to this initiative was the ability to collect and store all relevant data—invoices, repair orders, parts master, Vehicles in Operation (VIO) data—into one data warehouse. Access to this information would be through a web-based system, enabling corporate and field personnel anytime, anywhere access to dealer parts, service metrics and sales trends.

The timetable for this project was half that of an implementation typical for this size analytics management program, just six months.
