Main focus is the management of A.T.U loyalty card holders, as well as the distribution and service communication for its online shop.
Online dialogue marketing is a fundamental part of the new strategic direction of automotive dealer and workshop chain A.T.U. With email-supported campaigns, A.T.U is planning to further expand its ecommerce turnover and effectively support marketing at point of sale.

Existing and potential customersin different areas can now be targeted and managed holistically and individually.

Automated and individualised dialogue marketing

Comprehensive customer dialogue

Automated notifications on service intervals, TÜV, ASU or reminders for required seasonal maintenance, such as winter/summer tyre changes make effective use of possible sales opportunities. At the same time, this event-specific communication will be appreciated as a relevant and friendly service. The option of printable coupons makes the success of the campaigns measurable all the way to point of sale. The automated activation of A.T.U card holders offers customers, for example, access to the current point balance of their A.T.U card account.
