Kinga Slade – Digital Sales Channels

Discovery

To enable prospective customers to view new cars available both nationally and at local retailer level, helping them to progress to purchasing a vehicle online.

Multiple audiences and user journeys needed consideration, from end users of the platform arriving from multiple entry points to local retailers & retailer groups, the NSC and other BMW Group digital tools, amongst a competitive online automotive environment built during a pandemic.

Validation of data and identification of upstream failures was required as the platform would need to tie together multiple data points; from central vehicle data feeds to finance calculations to dealer systems applying pricing changes – whilst providing pricing accuracy and uptime. The platform also needed to integrate with central cookie controller and Adobe web analytics systems, ensuring compliance and management of marketing cookies added to the platform.

Idea

We made a web application with two user interfaces to handle both key BMW Group brands with differing product line-ups and personalities, whilst providing a seamless user experience. We’ve introduced extensive monitoring to measure uptime and integrity of consumed upstream data and added enhanced filtering, similarity search, lead time accuracy and integrated 360 degree video content specific to a selected vehicle.
