Salesforce redefines automotive

The automotive industry is currently undergoing major change. Not only are sales processes being redefined, but customer acquisition and communication are also being reinvented. Salesforce has recognized this and now offers a tailored industry solution for the automotive sector.

The Salesforce Automotive Cloud 

New sales models, digital after-sales or even electromobility… the automotive industry is undergoing a major transformation which requires a solution to successfully facilitate the process and capitalise on the opportunities. With many years of experience in the automotive sector and many successful projects with customers, Salesforce has now developed a tailored solution for this - the Salesforce Automotive Cloud. A solution that seamlessly brings together customer, vehicle and manufacturer and takes the customer experience to the next level. As one of the few Salesforce Automotive Expert Partners worldwide, we are pleased to roll out this solution with our customers. 

Automotive Cloud Key FEatures

The industry-specific Automotive Cloud brings a set of ready-made features you need to be more efficient and effective, offering solutions based on your Automotive specific data models and processes. Salesforce has collaborated with customers, subject matter experts and industry bodies to built features which meet the evolving needs of OEMs and Dealers.

OEMs and dealers can comprehensively capture all the lead information relevant to the automotive buying journey with an enhanced lead model, built to the Auto-lead Data Format (ADF) industry standard. For example, the ability to record a lead’s preferred dealer and the latest date in which they are interested in transacting will ensure actions occur at the right time and right place, resulting in improved lead quality and conversion.

All stakeholders in the automotive ecosystem can get a 360° view of a vehicle and history (such as manufacturing, sales, maintenance, warranty and other relevant data based on customer interactions). This unification of vehicle and customer data makes it possible to take action to optimise customer and vehicle lifetime value.

Build a complete view of your customer within an automotive context, with the ability to model households and other users who share access to a vehicle. Key moments in a customer's relationship with their car can be defined and captured to give a complete history of purchase and ownership.

Service Console will enable vehicle data to be integrated into contact centre, giving service agents a 360 view of both customer and vehicle and the ability to serve customers faster, be it booking a service appointment or arranging roadside assistance.

Automotive Cloud’s DPM (Dealer Performance Management) capabilities enable OEMs to have a clear real-time picture of dealer performance, with visibility of the vehicles, parts, and accessories which retailers have sold. OEMs can utilise this data to define and share volume agreements, sales manager targets, and dealer incentives which maximise dealer performance. Embedded analytics provide easy-to-digest dashboards so that dealer performance data can be used to identify the best-performing strategies and dealers.


The customer and vehicle sit at the centre of Automotive Cloud which will enable automotive stakeholders to meet the evolving expectations and higher standards which customers are now demanding in their buying journeys. Delivering a more relevant and responsive omni-channel experience will connect with customers on deeper level and enable brands to foster a lifetime of loyalty.
