SBD and Gamivation Collaborate on Dealer Incentivization Whitepaper and Panel at Telematics West Coast 2014

The session will be introduced and moderated by SBD, who are about to release a whitepaper study in collaboration with Gamivation that aims to analyze and highlight best practices and innovative solutions to overcome the disconnection between consumers, in-car technologies, and auto dealers on the front line of this ever-changing landscape. At the event they will be joined by dealer representatives from all parts of the sales and customer support value chain to break down and discuss this issue. The panel will take place on Friday October 31.

Whitepaper – ‘Reboot: Developing a New Automotive Dealer Experience for Connecting Drivers to their In-car Technologies’

“The rush to infotainment innovation is placing immense pressure on auto dealerships, which face an expansion of their role from purely selling cars, to helping consumers understand, set-up and troubleshoot their new in-car technologies”, commented Andrew Hart of SBD, “With automakers all implementing different strategies to support their dealer networks, including the much-hyped ‘Genius Bars’, our whitepaper and panel at Telematics West Coast, in association with Gamivation, should provide auto dealers a clear roadmap.”

Telematics Update project director, Annie Reddaway, commented: “I am excited to see what ideas come out of this collaboration. The panel session presents a rare opportunity to hear an open, honest dialogue from a range of dealership representatives about connected car features. Rather than OEM engineers or product managers, the buck ultimately stops with auto dealers, who have the role of presenting infotainment systems and features to the customer. If dealers aren’t convinced, how can they convince customers?”
