Tom Madonna and Bill Veltri discuss how Automotive is at a once-in-100-years inflection point, with the industry moving into new methods of transacting and new business models that will enable improved customer engagement and provide access to the power of data. “Digital Vehicle Hub/Vehicle Management System is a new container for supporting those models.” Bill observes, “When thinking about the Automotive industry, the Distributors and Dealers are often overlooked, as most people focus on the manufacturing and supply chain processes. Moving vehicles from the manufacturing locations to the distributors, accessorizing those vehicles, and moving them to the right dealers is an important part of the vehicle supply chain.” OEMs, Dealerships, and Retailers need new ways of communication and passing information back-and-forth to support customers. Tom poses this top-of-mind question, “How much data is needed or wanted, and who owns that data?” Listen on-demand to hear the full conversation with Tom Madonna and Bill Veltri. More info:
