The vehicle business is facing profound changes.
New products such as e-cars are changing the after sales business, and service revenues per vehicle are dropping considerably.
Sales of new cars to private customers are declining.
In large metropolitan areas, there is a demand for mobility but not necessarily vehicle ownership. New mobility services and utilization concepts are emerging. Offerings range from vehicle rentals and leasing to car subscriptions and sharing.
Distribution channels are changing. Direct marketing by manufacturers and new sales cooperations pose a threat to dealers’ traditional business models.
Instead of interfaces which enable only selective integration, OEMs increasingly offer applications covering entire subprocesses. Dealers are then required to integrate the processes into their systems.
New market participants such as internet portals for purchase, sales and auctions of used cars, as well as sales cooperations with companies outside the automotive industry are drawing away customers.
Vehicle dealers feel enormous pressure to optimize their traditional businesses and develop new models in the long term. The key parameters here are how dealers shape customer relationships and automate processes.
Modern businesses dealing in multiple brands require solutions based on an open architecture that can flexibly map business processes – both end-to-end and across companies.
proaxia VSS is a complete integrated solution for the comprehensive support of business processes in automotive sales and service.
Streamlined processes and best-practise technologies optimally support your business – both in internal operations and when collaborating with the various market players (vehicle manufacturers and their sales subsidiaries, vehicle dealers, company vehicle fleets, independent repair businesses and workshop chains).
The high degree of process automation and the open and flexible architecture give you the freedom to respond to IT trends based on specific brand manufacturers, and to introduce innovative business models.
The integrated dealer management system based on SAP S/4HANA comprises all features for new and used car sales, replacement part and accessory distribution, and workshop processes, including: appointment scheduling with customers, time-tracking-based workshop order processing, and integrated guarantee management and invoicing.
proaxia VSS helps you actively shape the future of your vehicle business. This complete solution, built on the most advanced SAP technologies, offers you the flexibility you need to grow and respond to changes in your market, to later adapt your processes and IT environments to new requirements, and to take advantage of new business opportunities. Previously installed applications are smoothly transitioned to the world of Intelligent Enterprise solutions, with utmost investment protection ensured.
By intelligently enmeshing and automating sales and service processes, individual and targeted communication with the customer is enabled at all stages of the customer journey – from leads to sales to regular maintenance.
Digital sales enable your salesforce to shape all customer touchpoints across the entire customer journey, professionally and proactively. Independently of your distribution model, proaxia VSS supports every step with self-documenting, automated workflows. This makes communication with your customers consistent across all channels. The customer journey becomes without exception a positive experience ‒ with sustainable and cost-effective benefits.
Digital service ensures access to customer interactions records, allowing you to proactively maintain customer contact even after vehicle purchase. As a result, your service advisors never miss an opportunity to reach out to customers. This includes automatic reminders to service staff when customer service is due or a guarantee expires. Service processes are tightly enmeshed with the workshop management system, so that you can plan workshop visits to be highly convenient and worry-free.
Make it as easy as possible for your customers to use your services. Turn your after-sales leads into revenue and realize your upselling potential.
Best-in-class ERP, special features for vehicle businesses and intuitive, role-based user interfaces are what makes the proaxia VSS Dealer Management System stand out.
