Vehicle retailers are faced with changing consumer behaviour, evolution in  vehicle drive-trains  and a constantly shifting legislative framework. However, businesses make the future work for them  by examining the trends and adapting accordingly.

Despite the challenges ahead,  the aftersales arena remains a significant area of opportunity.

The continuing upswing in new car sales in 2013 and 2014 means the number of vehicles needing servicing and repair work is only going to increase across the next few years. This means it is more important than ever for franchised dealers to offer the best possible aftersales offering to encourage their customers to keep vehicles in the network, while also identifying additional income streams.  

Looking at ongoing trends and how they intersect with current business practices will enable dealers see where their strengths lie, as well as identify where there is room for improvement and innovation.

The key for dealers will be to provide a complete offering to their customers, so 2015's AM Aftersales Conference will look at how businesses can prepare for the future.

Opportunities ripe for development will be explored extensively and are set to provide dealers with the means to recognise and exploit additional income channels. It will include tips from the conference’s main sponsors. CitNOW will show how to meaningfully enhance your online offering via video content and other channels. Meanwhile, EMaC will demonstrate how offering service plans can mean  increased customer retention.
