Make way for seamless warranty management

In today’s highly connected automotive environment, effective warranty management is a cornerstone of competitive advantage. To fully reap its benefits, an optimization of present capabilities may not be enough.

OEMs currently spend between two to four percent of their annual turnover on warranty and warranty related costs, with 30% of these costs directly related to inefficiencies in dealer networks. The relentless scrutiny of warranty processes throughout a dealer network is a prime condition for reducing this warranty waste, improving warranty process quality and building customer loyalty. However, for this to have a long term sustainable ROI, OEMs require an integrated set of warranty programs that implement best practices at both the OEM and dealer levels. Not only does this increase service quality but in our data-driven retail environment, warranty data can also provide dealers with valuable customer intelligence.

5 reasons why Warranty Management should be in your business strategy


Increased vehicle connectivity

More vehicle functions are now controlled electronically. As a result diagnosing problems and performing servicing and repairs have become much more data reliant. With real-time technical data support, service technicians can perform warranty repairs quickly and cost effectively


Increased customer connectivity

Your customers are connected – to their car, to each other and likely to your competitors. By streamlining your warranty processes and transforming the claims process into a positive customer experience you can increase WoM and long-term customer loyalty.


Inefficient warranty processes

Implementing tighter warranty controls and regularly auditing dealer performance makes it easier to analyze warranty risks and take advantage of key opportunities and improvement potential.


Unnecessary warranty repairs

A systematic pre-approval process ensures that approved diagnostic routines are followed and that labor-intensive warranty repairs are only carried out when necessary.


Rapidly changing warranty regulations

It is almost impossible for workshop staff to keep up with changing and complex warrant regulations without regular training. However, in order to be financially viable training courses need to be flexible and designed to your individual business requirements.
