But, while the third and fourth waves of mobile adoption are thundering ahead across U.S. retail markets, most dealerships are still riding the first one,” said Mike Martinez, CMO of DMEautomotive.  “And with the rapid evolution of mobile, this is of particular concern given that not only are more and more consumers using mobile apps on their smartphones during their vehicle/ownership journey, but those who do are more likely to buy a vehicle, increase their service visits – and spend more money![2] Our new eBook delivers the latest information and best practices to take the mystery out of today’s mobile innovations, and offers simple tips and practices to help ensure that more and more dealers leverage today’s pocket innovations.”

  • 48% of customers are still researching their purchase while they’re physically on the lot.
  • Mobile app usage is set to grow by 29.8 percent each year, reaching 4.4 billion app users by the end of 2017.
