Derek D is joined today by Chase Abbott, VP of Sales at Cox Automotive. Chase explains how AI now translates data into common sense customer insights, bridging the gap for dealers used to “getting a read” on an in-person buyer. He also explains how digital tools can, counter-intuitively, help in-person sales by cutting tedious processes like credit checks—while saving the exciting moments, like test drives, for the dealership.
In all, Chase argues that digital retailing won’t eliminate in-person car sales, but that it’s an important aspect to integrate, for any dealer who wants to increase total sales and success moving into the future.
“I remember my dealer principal said, ‘Nobody’s ever gonna buy cars through a damn website!’ . . . I need to call him today and have another conversation!”
