Technology Development & Implementation

Is the technology in your vehicles meeting the demand and expectations of customers?

OEMs and suppliers often struggle to keep up with the ever-changing expectations consumers have with the technology in their vehicle.  Successfully integrating the right technological advancements into automotive products requires a precise balance between user-friendliness and innovation.

J.D. Power consultants combine years of experience with syndicated and proprietary data to help our clients design, develop, and implement user-friendly technologies that meet consumer's needs.

Contenting Optimization for Profitablity & Sales Performance

Are your product planners equipped with the best data to meet customer expectations while also reducing costs?

Unnecessary build complexity increases costs, manufacturing variation, and makes it more difficult for customers to match their needs/wants with inventory.  Offering products that meet customer expectations, while also minimizing complexity, requires a unique combination of data and expertise.

J.D. Power uses proprietary build configuration data, syndicated VoC data, and ad-hoc consumer research to match customer wants/desires with an efficient and cost effective packaging/contenting strategy.

Dealership Research, Certification & Training

Does your dealer network provide a consistent, best-in-class sales and service experience for your customers?

A poor sales or service experience can lead to a loss of confidence with the brand, creating defectors and rejectors and resulting in the loss of revenue from vehicle sales and parts.

Improve the dealership experience by leveraging J.D. Power's proprietary SSI and CSI syndicated data, combined with J.D. Power's in-dealership consulting programs. These programs effectively leverage syndicated sales and service best practices to improve the customer experience. J.D. Power retail consultants, who have a broad range of retail experience in improving customer satisfaction, provide the ability to analyze and address root-cause issues impacting dealer performance.
