Cloud Telephony for Automobile Industry

The founder of modern management Peter Drucker called the automobile industry as "the industry of industries".
Today the Indian automobile industry is the most attractive industry, it contributes nearly 7% to country’s GDP and growing at a rate of nearly 10% YoY(source: SIAM, TechSci Research). The burgeoning Indian market has even attracted the global players like Porsche, Bentley, and Ferrari all has setup their outlet in India.
Undoubtedly the opportunity is huge, but the competition is also fierce. The increased competition  has forced  the companies to look into the service aspects of the business starting from pre sales to after sales service. According to  Frost & Sullivan,  over 60 per cent of Indian customers give  importance to  after-sales service,  service plays a crucial role in buying decision process.
If we analyze the outbound supply chain and customer service, we will find that there are lots of loopholes, many of them can be easily solved if we streamline the communication process.
Current Scenario& Challenges:
If we look outbound supply chain of the automotive industry, its very complex a distributor has to handle multiple dealers and many times to reach remote location, the dealer have network of sub-dealers and retailers.
The main pain point or areas of improvement at the customer touch-point i.e. dealer are:
  • All the dealers  are independently working, there is no way to track the  quality of service and  monitor the customer calls
  • Complete sales process from lead generation to sales are handled by the dealers, there are no mechanics to track the process, i.e  how dealers are handling leads, which dealer is performing better or have a   better lead conversion ratio.
  • Customer service like alert to customers for vehicle service, renewal of insurance, all these services are dependent on the mercy of dealers.  There is  no uniformity in the service across the dealer network
  • There  is no communication process between the dealers, to optimally use the existing inventory, i.e Cars,bikes or any spare part
  • The promotion campaign run by the company is completely dependent on dealers and their partners.
