Take The Lead In Sales With HPI Motorvision

HPI & GMAP launch data cleansing and lead generation service

When sales are down, customer contact is crucial, but the latest figures from HPI reveal that typically, 25% of most dealer's customer databases are inaccurate. This is a worrying trend that could lead to missed sales opportunities, at a time when dealers can't afford to lose out to the competition. In partnership with the GMAP Consulting, part of CallCredit Information Group, a leader in consumer intelligence and market analysis, HPI is launching Motorvision, a package of products designed to assist dealers make the most of both existing customer data and new prospects available in their territory. HPI Motorvision consists of local market reports showing used car buying trends, a healthcheck on the dealer's data and the provision of unique leads offering the dealer the high quality, targeted sales opportunities that they need.

Automotive Director for HPI, Daniel Burgess explains "We all know that customers are the lifeblood of a dealer's business. In a tough market, it's more important than ever to grab every opportunity to communicate with existing customers and employ clever methods to bring new ones through the door. HPI Motorvision will help you save money on your marketing campaigns by taking the collated dealer records and bringing them up to date, ensuring that every communication is accurately addressed."

Using a host of reliable sources including DVLA datasets, Royal Mail addresses, the Edited Electoral Roll from Local Authorities, and a host of Goneaway, Mover and Deceased files, HPI Motorvision allows dealers to see how much money they could save on mailings by confirming addresses, removing consumers who have either moved house or passed away, highlighting duplicate records and flagging whether the vehicle has changed keeper. It also offers dealers the chance to get back in touch with customers who they have lost touch with by providing their new addresses.

"To complement a dealer's refreshed database, HPI Motorvision also delivers new leads as either mailing lists, telephone lists or emails, allowing them to create an effective campaign to win and keep new customers," continues John Chesworth, Automotive Director of the Callcredit Information Group. "Through Motorvision's lead provision capabilities, HPI can deliver to dealers quality, targeted prospects enabling dealers to make the most of their marketing budget. By accessing our database of potential customers, which is one of the most comprehensive in the marketplace, HPI Motorvision provides dealers with the details of people who could bring additional sales and service revenue opportunities."

Dealers can also benefit from having greater insight into their local market, which is why HPI Motorvision includes a Used Car Market report. Dealers can gain vital market intelligence on the vehicles sold within their local area. This allows them to target potential customers in their territory who are likely to drive the make of vehicle that they sell or alternatively choose leads for competitor makes and models to try and convert them to purchasing their brand.

Burgess concludes, "HPI Motorvision creates sales leads that will enable dealers to communicate with prime prospects, bringing them into both their showroom and the aftersales department to boost sales, service and parts revenue. In the current economic climate, it makes sense to grab every opportunity to communicate with current and potential customers. HPI Motorvision allows dealers to target the right contacts at the right time, maximising their relationship and driving up sales."
