Partner Through Positive Disruption

Susan Moritz, VP, Business Development, NextGear Capital       
Today, the car business is going strong, and the time to act is now. Despite double-digit automotive growth during this economic recovery, overall profit margins have tightened, and decades of historical data show us that the market is cyclical. As we approach the crest of a 10-year cycle, dealers must respond now to consumer demands for change in the automotive retail experience while creating operational efficiencies on the wholesale and retail sides of their business in order to protect profitability and remain viable in the future. This presentation will illuminate thought leadership around an innovative automotive experience for both consumers and dealers that will enhance the customer buying experience while creating operational efficiencies that empower dealers and improve profitability.
