Philippine-based online vehicle marketplace AutoDeal announced that they have helped generate over PHP 450,000,000 worth of brand new vehicle sales since January 2015. The figure stems from the company’s customer feedback service wherein customers provide testimonials based on their experience with Autodeal and partner dealerships.
“We’ve been receiving testimonies from car buyers across the country who used our platform to conveniently connect with a dealer ahead of making a trip to a showroom,” said AutoDeal co-founder Christopher Franks. “While our initial feedback account for around PHP 450,000,000 worth of vehicle sales, we’re confident that the platform has provided sales upward of PHP 1-billion that range from subcompact hatchbacks to luxury SUVs”.
Based on customer feedback, 43-percent of all AutoDeal-generated sales came from Metro Manila, 41-percent from the provinces of Luzon, and 16-percent from Visayas and Mindanao. The company’s data analytics is also helping brands pinpoint emerging hotspots such as Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Batangas, and Bulacan.
According to a combined report from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) and Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), the country’s new-car industry continues to soar with 23,139 units sold last May 2015, an 18-percent increase year over year. The segment also improved by 20-percent during this year’s first five months compared to the same period last 2014.
To further support the industry’s growth, AutoDeal will continue providing its dealer and OEM partners with sales leads, heavily supplemented with customer fulfilment.
“Lead generation by itself is not enough, that’s why we’ve built several back-end tools in AutoDeal that focus on customer fulfillment and data analytics for our clients,” added AutoDeal co-founder Daniel Scott.
Included in these back-end tools is a customer portal where they can confirm their contact details, create wish lists, subscribe for alerts from specific vehicle brands, and communicate more effectively with partner dealers across the AutoDeal platform. Autodeal is also committed to working with its partners in order to further refine customer experience on the platform.
