Changing Consumer Behavior Is Stress Testing All Stakeholders’ Business Practices

Changing Consumer Behavior Is Stress Testing All Stakeholders’ Business Practices

AFSA (American Financial Services Association) hosts a variety of webinars throughout the year to educate members on some of the most pressing issues that face the financial services industry. The webinars are designed to provide information that will allow AFSA members to more effectively design, develop and implement strategies to ensure their company’s success.

In this webinar, Jenn Reid, Market Scan’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, discusses the obstacles and uncertainty the automotive industry has faced over the last 12 months, from the pandemic itself, the rush to implement digital retailing solutions and accommodating the consumer through new and redefined dealership best practices.

Jenn highlights how digital retailing is challenging all stake holders involved – manufacturers, retailers and especially lenders – to provide consumers a consistent experience across the journey, including information that can be used to transact online or in the showroom, which will require engagement and strategies executed much earlier in the process.

Market Scan Consumer Survey Emphasizes the Importance of Offering Consistent Payment Quotes Digitally and in the Sales Showroom

Market Scan Consumer Survey Emphasizes the Importance of Offering Consistent Payment Quotes Digitally and in the Sales Showroom

For Immediate Release

Consumer interest drops dramatically when showroom offers are just $50 different from what consumer was quoted online

Camarillo, Calif., March 18, 2021 – Market Scan Information Systems, Inc., an industry-leading automotive SaaS / PaaS solutions and data provider, today announced results from a recent consumer survey it completed focused on consumer behavior associated with automotive digital retailing. The survey highlights frustrations, expectations and provides valuable insight on how sales opportunities are lost when payment offers online differ from payments presented at a dealer’s showroom.

Market Scan commissioned an online survey during January, where it polled roughly 200 automotive shoppers on their pain points associated with the digital retailing process. The survey also took a pulse check on how payments and offers are being presented to consumers today.

Price and payment negotiation remain among the most important aspects of the car shopping experience for consumers. The survey showed that nearly half of all respondents (45%) say price and payments matter to them the most.

The disconnect between shopping online and the experience at a dealer showroom remains a major headache for many. In fact, when it comes to online shopping, 49% said they need to restart the entire process when they arrive at the dealership after doing all their homework online, ahead of time. Furthermore, 43% are frustrated that there are still discrepancies between the online offer, and the one they are presented with at the dealership.

Why does this matter? 21% of shoppers say they begin to lose trust in their dealer when the discrepancy between the online offer and showroom offer is $50 or less per month. In parallel, 21% said they will actually walk away from the deal if the discrepancy is $50 or less per month and 48% said they will walk if the difference is less than $75 per month.

Dealers should recognize that this does not mean technology will force a race to the bottom. In fact, consumers said they may be willing to pay a little extra for the convenience of a true online shopping experience. Just over a third (34%) said they would sacrifice a little negotiating power to offset additional costs required for an ideal online shopping process that transitions seamlessly to the showroom experience.

“Prompted by COVID-19, digital retailing proficiency has become a must and an integral part of automotive retailing”, said Rusty West, President and CEO of Market Scan. “Dealers now must have an omni-channel presence and it is imperative that they provide consumers payment transparency and consistency throughout the entire journey. The survey results emphasize the importance of providing a scientifically perfect solution for any conceivable automotive transaction. When science, technology, data and automotive insight are applied correctly, it enables manufacturers, lenders, and retailers to provide consumers a frictionless, modern retailing experience – both online and in the dealer sales showrooms. And when that happens, everyone wins.”

Market Scan supplying industry data and payment calculation technology to enhance GM’s Shop.Click.Drive digital retailing platform

Camarillo, Calif. Nov. 2, 2020– Market Scan Information Systems, Inc., an industry-leading automotive solutions and data provider, today announced it will integrate with GM’s “Shop.Click.Drive” Digital Retailing platform. Shop.Click.Drive will be powered with Market Scan’s mScanAPI solution – the automotive industry’s leading database and payment calculation technology.

“We are honored General Motors recognized that our data, technology and solutions can help enhance the Shop.Click.Drive shopping experience”, said Market Scan President and co-Founder, Rusty West.” “We are excited to work with such an iconic company as General Motors. We commend GM for having the insight and vision to provide their dealerships and consumers with solutions that usher in a new era in automotive retail.”

Market Scan offers unique and proprietary software, data, analytics and calculation technology. Market Scan is the only company that electronically tracks all the data in the five critical sectors of the market – manufacturer, lender, dealer, municipality and consumer.

Shop.Click.Drive is GM’s tool for providing a simple way to purchase or lease a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle online. Shop.Click.Drive enables consumers to model payments, personalize their vehicles, request a test drive, apply for credit, get a value for their trade, and other services online. And at the end of the simple, online process, buyers can have their vehicle prepped and delivered to their home through participating dealers, where available.

“GM has been continuously improving Shop.Click.Drive to make it the best online shopping experience in the industry and the simplest possible way to purchase or lease a new or used Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle online,” said Ed Vogt, director eCommerce for GM’s Customer Experience organization. “Integrating Market Scan’s mScanAPI solution will help us deliver payment and pricing information available to our customers and give our dealers an even more powerful tool to enhance the shopping, purchasing and delivery experience.”

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic heightened the convenience and importance of Shop.Click.Drive to GM, its dealers and vehicle shoppers. GM reported that its dealers have found a nearly five-fold increase in the number of leads in 2020 from Shop.Click.Drive, and the company has consistently cited the online tool as a key to its strong results in the marketplace.

“Today’s consumers expect immediacy, transparency, consistency, selection, and pricing & payment accuracy, said Market Scan’s Rusty West. “Similarly, dealerships are desperate for the tools and solutions to help them deliver such an experience. The opportunity to collaborate and work with GM and to bring real improvements for dealers and consumers is extremely exciting for us.”
