ATLANTA, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The wait is over for dealers seeking to plan, forecast and analyze the impact of their digital marketing spend in one place. With less than two weeks until the 2018 NADA Convention and Expo in Las Vegas, Cox Automotive announces the anticipated release of nVision, the only integrated digital marketing platform to offer transparency into a dealer's end-to-end marketing strategy.
In today's online shopping world, dealers are trying to reach the right shopper with the right message in the right place and at the right time. Getting this right means having a digital marketing strategy that spans Classifieds, Vehicle Values, Vehicle Research and the dealer's own website. nVision provides actionable insight on the impacts that Autotrader, Dealer.com, Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com and Cox Automotive's other digital retailing products have in the consumers' online journey that lead to in-store sales.
"Cox Automotive is a leader in automotive data science, and by harnessing our powerful trio of industry-leading brands, we're providing a deterministic attribution model only Cox Automotive can deliver," said Jai Macker, senior vice president of product for Cox Automotive. "Our groundbreaking digital marketing platform provides unparalleled value to dealers and auto manufacturers through nGauge quality measurement, sales attribution and predictive advertising recommendations. It's a true game changer for our clients."
The new nVision hub features numerous intuitive management tools in three categories that dealers can conveniently access from one login.
"Our goal for analytics products is all about turning data into actionable information," said James Grace, senior director of analytics products at Cox Automotive. "nVision helps us achieve this goal by giving clients unparalleled visibility into information they can trust and use on a daily basis to operate their business."
In order to deliver nGauge's sales attribution capability, Cox Automotive partnered with LiveRamp, an Acxiom company and leading provider of omnichannel identity resolution. This partnership further enhances Cox Automotive's ability to deliver transparent and actionable information and analytics to clients, with the confidence provided by validation from a trusted third party.
nVision will rollout throughout 2018, starting with the Analyze Shoppers Report and Compass Advertise Recommendation. This will be the first time the tool will be offered to clients using Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com and the all-new Autotrader. Cox Automotive is also introducing its new connected retail platform, Accelerate, on KBB.com and the all-new Autotrader, to make car buying faster, easier and more enjoyable, while providing an online experience that is more efficient and integrated for both consumers and dealers. Accelerate tools will also be made available across 60 percent of franchised dealer websites powered by Dealer.com in 2018.
