New Paradigms in Automotive Retail: Shifting from Traditional Approach to Product as a Service (PaaS)

About this event

The automotive retail industry is undergoing a massive transformation as more and more consumers are opting for the “Product as a Service” (PaaS) model and are abandoning the traditional Purchase / Break-fix model. Recent industry reports indicate that the PaaS business model will become the dominant business model in automotive in the next few years and OEMs and Dealers must re-define their relationship and find innovative solutions to optimise the current business model in preparation for the future. Industry experts believe that the two models will run in parallel for many years and therefore it is imperative to work on both simultaneously.

Join our industry experts at the webinar and learn more about:

  • Effective tools for online collaboration between OEMs and Dealers / Distributors
  • Best practices in Retail Inventory Management
  • The dynamic shift from break-fix model to PaaS
  • The role of IoT, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in automotive retail … and much more
