NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With so many brands and models for consumers to choose from, automotive dealerships and manufacturers find themselves in a steep competition to target the right customer at the right time with the right offer and message. automotiveMastermind, the leading predictive analytics and marketing automation technology for automotive dealerships, is transforming the sales process by empowering sales teams with key insights and valuable information on its top prospects. Today, the company announced that Toyota dealerships across the country will now be able to partner with automotiveMastermind.
"Toyota is always on the cutting edge of technology and innovation; designing and building vehicles that consistently exceed expectations. The reveal of the redesigned subcompact crossover SUV, the CH-R, is one example; with Toyota's focus on a growing and competitive vehicle class, our technology can help dealers identify the rapidly changing consumer behavior toward crossover SUVs," said Marco Schnabl, co-CEO and founder of automotiveMastermind. "We have experienced tremendous success with Toyota's sister brand, Lexus, just one month after a successful pilot program, we secured about 20 percent of all Lexus dealerships. We are looking forward to providing the Toyota sales teams with relevant insights about their customers, helping transform their existing sales process and ultimately closing more sales."
Toyota becomes the ninth automotive brand to the automotiveMastermind platform. The company is currently working with Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Honda, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and MINI.
