“Connected Car ROI: The Road to Holistic Program Value”

When: Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at 9:00am ET / 6:00am PT

What: Automakers are undergoing a transformational change in how they package and price connected car services. An underlying reason for this is a growing understanding of the holistic value of vehicle connectivity beyond simple features like remote door lock/unlock and infotainment to attract new car buyers to a brand. Remote diagnostics, over-the-air-updates, warranty analysis, advanced customer analytics, and usage monitoring are becoming the new connected car priorities for leading automakers. This webinar examines how these new priorities are helping automakers justify a technology transition to standard-fit telematics and features powered by data and analytics to gain a better understanding of how to achieve a more holistic return-on-investment (ROI) for connected car programs.
