Global Automotive Customer Relationship Management Market, Forecast to 2025
Cloud CRM will Gain Traction Among Small Dealerships and Increase Penetration to 35.0% by 2025
  • This study analyzes the competitive landscape, business models, pricing, and future focus areas of dealerships, DMS providers, and third-party vendors in the automotive CRM market.

    Automotive retail is shifting from a product-driven to customer-centric approach and accommodating changing customer expectations have become crucial for dealers. However, dealerships are struggling to finely capture customer data through multiple online retail channels, ensure that information is actionable, and achieve a centralized view of customers across all stores. Automotive CRM is trailing behind other industries and dealerships need to utilize the advanced capabilities of CRM to proactively identify business opportunities and build trusted relationships with their customers throughout the ownership lifecycle.

    Automotive CRM’s competitive landscape is evolving, with DMS providers entering the market and intensifying competition. DMS providers are lacking advanced CRM capabilities and, hence, acquiring small CRM vendors to realize profitable business opportunities in the market For example, CDK Global acquired ELEAD1ONE to strengthen CRM capabilities and expand its client base in the United States. Third-party CRM vendors are offering flexible integration interfaces to ensure that dealers connect to DMS systems seamlessly. It is essential for CRM and DMS providers to work hand-in-hand to survive in the industry and for dealers to realize business profits. Dealerships/OEMs who establish a well-defined omni-channel strategy are likely to attract more customers, build trusted relationships, and transform the overall customer experience, thereby enabling higher profit margins in sales and aftersales.
