2015 Episode 2:
Leverage Usage Data to Develop More Customer-Centric Connected Car Programs
- Presenter: Andrew Hart, Director, SBD
- Panelists: Karl Greenberg, Scott Frank, Mike Chadsey
- Date: June 30th, 2015 at 6am PST
Automakers strive to identify which new features and services should be offered on different makes and models, and opportunities to de-spec legacy technologies such as CDs. A lack of detailed usage data from the vehicles themselves makes this job even harder. In this webinar SBD presents survey results jointly prepared with Nielsen analyzing how consumers are actually interacting with their connected cars, and the opportunities automakers have to translate that usage into brand loyalty leading to the next vehicle purchase.
