ieDigital Interact for motor finance.
digital motor finance solutions.
Traditional motor finance providers are facing huge challenges. We’re living in a world of evolving ownership models, where cars are connected and financial transactions exist outside of merely purchasing a vehicle.
This can include insurance, servicing, entertainment, accessory hire, concierge, recharging plans, and so much more. Motor finance offerings require greater flexibility than ever before, and these could be based on mileage, vehicle condition, driver behavior, shared ownership, and integration with other mobility packages.
The emphasis has to change, from focusing on customer acquisition to focusing on customer engagement. According to research, many segments prefer buying online (most notably women and millennials), and 16% of cars are bought without ever having been test-driven. These remote purchasing behaviors are increasing the need for customer engagement to improve retention.
Traditional brands such as Peugeot and Hyundai are selling cars online, and new challengers continue to enter the market. Amazon has opened offices in Europe, Carvana is expanding its successful US model into international markets, Zopa is moving into motor finance, and the likes of CarWow and TrueCar are benefiting from transparent pricing models.
Add to this an increased climate of regulatory and media scrutiny, which focus on responsible lending, conflicts of interest around commissions, sales process transparency and pricing risk management, and you can see that the economics of motor finance business models no longer add up.
It’s an intense era of change in the motor finance industry, and the requirement to meet customer demand for online engagement is urgent.
