Connected Service

Activate post-purchase, real-time dialogue about automobile performance and condition with your customers: Connected Service leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) to dramatically change the relationship between you and your customers.

New Revenue Models Based on Value-Added Services

Technology has enabled automobile manufacturers to create products with long lifecycles, resulting in greater customer loyalty but fewer opportunities to sell add-on services. And because identifying when replacement parts are needed is difficult to determine, customers often turn to competitors before manufacturers can offer their services. 
To capture these opportunities, manufacturers need to better understand their products’ performance and usage so they can:
  • Design relevant services
  • Deliver tailored marketing campaigns
  • Trigger customer interactions

Activate Real-Time Insights in Auto Performance

Powered by Capgemini’s expertise and Service Cloud, Connected Service uses machine sensors, analytic engines and engagement tools to provide real-time insight into automobile performance and condition, and customer behavior. For example, if a product requires a replacement part, sales personnel are prompted to trigger personalized interactions, such as contacting the customer with an offer. 
  • Real-time product and customer insights
  • Proactive dialogue that inspires customers to buy more and faster, and tell friends 
  • Monitoring for up to 2,000 data points per product, every three seconds
  • Post-purchase engagements
